The kitchen is the perfect space to let creativity thrive. Whether you’re trying out a new recipe or preparing a timeless classic, an artfully designed kitchen is the perfect place to make cherished memories.

At Hampton Flooring Center, we love to use backsplashes to beautify kitchens. We carry a variety of dazzling tile options in our showroom in Easthampton, MA that will help you get the perfect look. Here’s how to get the perfect backsplash for your kitchen!

Tile Finish

Ceramic and glazed tile will give your backsplash cool, classic appeal that feels instantly cozy and familiar. However, you can also choose a tile finish that shimmers, shines, and glistens when natural light comes in. Glass tile or metallic tile will pop and lend the stylishly modern ambiance of a modern restaurant or a lounge. Tile comes in every shade imaginable and when combined with a lustrous finish, your original color scheme is sure to stand out. Stone tile and tile with weathered finishes can also give your kitchen a completely relaxing feel.

Tile Shape

Tile can be small or large. You can use square tiles, rectangular tiles, and subway tiles in standard size formats to create a clean, traditional backsplash. Geometric tile with five, six, or eight sides will add visual interest and enliven a monochrome modern kitchen backsplash. Large, oversized patterned and graphic print tiles will energize your kitchen. You can even use slabs to create a backsplash for an innovative approach. The wide assortment of tile shapes and sizes will allow you to capture a look that’s all your own.

Patterned Layouts

Patterns are always engaging within a room design, and kitchens are no exception. Chevron, herringbone, and laser-cut tile will provide you with patterned layouts that produce eye-catching backsplash designs. Large patterned tile continues to rise in popularity; just make sure to plan your overall layout ahead of time to ensure that your backsplash doesn’t repeat in a way that you don’t intend it to. Whether you keep your patterned backsplash below the cabinetry or extend it as high as the kitchen ceiling, make sure to avoid a “busy” effect to keep the kitchen cozy and comforting overall.

Decorative Centerpieces

In addition to the gorgeous tile varieties that you choose for your kitchen backsplash, you can incorporate a decorative centerpiece as an attractive focal point. These large pieces add extra texture and artistry to the overall layout and work exceptionally well over the range or stove or under a smoke hood or kitchen light. Many tile manufacturers will create coordinating decorative pieces with their tile lines.

The right backsplash for your kitchen will help you enjoy cooking memorable meals and having cherished conversations with your loved ones. Come visit Hampton Flooring Center in Easthampton, MA and our tile experts can help you find the styles and inspiration you need to complete your beautiful backsplash!
