Decorate the Kitchen Walls With A Beadboard Backsplash

To get the authentic country cottage style in your kitchen you should seriously consider using beadboard on the walls. These tongue and groove boards provide a classic rustic look to the room. The smooth vertical lines provide a look that is aesthetically appealing to the eye and helps to set off the cabinets above the benches. It is not one of the more commonly used backsplash materials these days but it is still an effective option that will suit a variety of kitchen styles.

There are a couple of ways in which the beadboard look can be achieved. The first is to use the authentic boards that will cost a little more to buy and will take longer to install. The alternative is to buy sheets that have been inscribed to provide a finish that looks like beadboard. The second option will save you some time and money on the purchase and installation but the beadboard planks will give you the better looking finish.

The most commonly seen beadboard backsplash finish is one that has been painted either white or another light shade. When they have been newly installed they can give the room an impressive air. They can also be painted or stained to give them an even more decorative quality and this look is the reason why many people have chosen to use this type of surface in their kitchens again.

One of the problems experienced with a beadboard backsplash, particularly behind the sink and countertop areas is that anything that splatters onto the wall becomes lodged in the grooves and crevasses of the beadboard. It becomes quite difficult to clean and keep fresh looking. It may require frequent scrubbing just to remove anything that is caught on the wall from one meal preparation to the next. Cooking something that spatters or is prone to bubbling can quickly adhere to the beadboard wall. Spaghetti sauce or grease spatters from a deep fryer can be particularly difficult to remove while ensuring the wall surface remains undamaged.

Tactics to use to ensure your beadboard backsplash does not continually give you the problems of having to try to keep it clean will differ from kitchen to kitchen. But here are a few things you might want to consider if you are contemplating using it as a backsplash surface. Don’t use it around the sink or near the stove. If your food preparation area is isolated away from the walls, such as a kitchen island or a peninsula bench your beadboard backsplash will not be subjected to the more common spatter situations. If you are concerned that the boards butting up against the top of the benches will result in too much chance for stains to occur you have a couple of options. The first is to use a beadboard trim that will complete the look of the finish. The second is to edge your beadboard backsplash with some other material such as a ceramic or stone border tile.

To ensure your traditional beadboard backsplash is protected to provide it with some type of waterproofing it should be coated with clear polyurethane. There are other materials that are used to make the faux beadboard backsplash panels such as plywood or fibreboard.

Among all of the different types of non-tile backsplashes available such as stainless steel, glass and other wooden products, beadboard provides the most traditional look for the kitchen. As long as you are careful to keep the walls wiped down and cleaned it won’t be terribly difficult to keep them looking good.

Here are some more ideas for backsplashes for kitchens.

Having chosen the wider theme of placing an art mural backsplash on the wall you may find that the range of choices is far broader than you imagined. The type of tiles to use such as porcelain, ceramic or tumbled marble is merely one decision that could be very difficult to make unless there were some examples to look at that will inspire you.

As a means of combining a classic print with a rustic feel the combination of the two works particularly well when tumbled marble backsplash tiles are used. This idea may look particularly effective when the picture that is chosen is a pastoral scene particularly if you choose a Tuscan mural. For an added authentic feel, choose marble tiles that are slightly chipped or imperfect around the edges.

Tumbled marble backsplash tiles look beautiful on their own but they provide a stunning backdrop when a painted mural is applied to them. You should always be mindful of the porous nature of the stone and treat it with an appropriate sealant.

The fact that it will be used in the kitchen means that there is every likelihood that food and liquids will be splashed and spattered on the surface. To retain the original vibrant beauty of the mural it is going to have to be able to be washed properly and a sealed backsplash will enable that far more effectively.

Tuscan Art Mural Backsplash Tiles

A classical looking art mural for a kitchen backsplash is a Tuscan scene revolving around the Italian countryside with fields that stretch out to a beautiful blue sea. Alternatively a country village setting can always provide you with the sense of place that you are looking to achieve.

Still Life Art Mural Backsplash Tiles

The creation of a stainless steel backsplash in the kitchen provides you with the opportunity of creating a smooth and clean looking surface that can be offset in numerous ways by the appliances and cabinets you install. The option of stainless steel tiles provides you with the look and feel of stainless steel that has been broken up into a more textured design by the smaller tiles.

It is possible to buy stainless steel backsplash tiles in a variety of colors giving you the opportunity to mix the tiles together just as you can with glass or ceramic tiles. You may also choose to break the stainless steel tile up by mixing it with other backsplash options to create a bold and imaginative display on the wall.

The use of stainless steel tiles as a backsplash provides you with the bright and clean appearance that is so much admired of the metal without resulting in the industrial kitchen look that you might get from stainless steel sheets. It is a surface that is very easy to clean with a simple sponge and hot water sufficient for most marks and stains. It is a surface that doesn’t require sealing unlike some other tiled surfaces. Although it is a metal surface, stainless steel doesn’t require the polishing and other maintenance that copper or brass backsplash tiles might.

The disadvantage with using stainless steel backsplash tiles is that any scratches or scuffs are going to become apparent very quickly. Stainless steel that is scratched will be very noticeable.

The price of stainless steel backsplash tiles can be a little expensive although it is possible to find some very attractive tiles for low prices.

As an example, the 11” x 10 sheet of stainless steel tiles displayed below was recently sold on eBay for $12.00.

And the 11.75” x 11.75” sheet of stainless steel mosaic backsplash tiles is being offered for sale for only $16.00.

The above tile pictures are just an example of the type of stainless steel tiles that can be found at reasonable prices.

They are available in just about any color palette imaginable and although they look very effective when a single color is used, they really take on another look altogether when a series of matching colors are placed in the same backsplash.

Kitchen Subway Backsplash Tile Ideas

Although the original place in which subway tile backsplashes were seen was in the bathroom, their use as kitchen backsplashes is becoming more common. A subway tile kitchen backsplash can certainly define a modern kitchen space. Larger subway tiles can provide a fresh surface that will be simple to clean and provide a solid wall for most styles.

However, a much more stunning effect could be achieved by going for a look that is more adventurous with long, thin glass subway tiles to provide an amazing finish that would pick up the lights, whether they were overhead lights or low-positioned lighting projecting upwards from the counters.

An original 3" x 6" subway tile in a neutral color such as white can be used in the kitchen to create a very dramatic accent that will allow the kitchen cabinets and counter tops to stand out. If you have a dark granite or marble counter top below a white backsplash the effect is going to be very dramatic.

There are many different types of subway tile backsplash designs available to choose from. The experts at your local tile outlet will be able to provide you with an endless selection using combinations that you may not have even considered.

A mini subway tile backsplash does not refer to the size of the backsplash itself. It is actually referring to the size of the tiles that are used to create the backsplash. In this case, mini subway tiles are the tiles measuring around 1" high by around 2 inches long, although they are also available in longer versions. These tiles provide an interesting effect and are certainly indicative of a forward-thinking design option.

The following is a brief display of some of the mini subway tile backsplashes that are available.

A grey mini subway tile kitchen backsplash provides a modern and elegant look and the line of dark mini subway tiles creates an effective border treatment.

These mini subway tiles are put together as a river stone effect with the colors nicely complementing each other. They would look particularly effective combined with a granite benchtop.

This predominantly green backsplash makes great use of the mini subway tiles above a plain white kitchen bench.

Some of the most dramatic examples of subway backsplash tiles are also some of the smallest. This drama emanates from tiles measuring 1" x 4", long skinny tiles that work exceptionally well to create eye-catching lines across the kitchen walls.

Reasons To Use Subway Tiles In the Kitchen

People might choose to use subway tiles on the walls of their kitchen for a number of reasons, some of which will have more to do with convenience while others will be for aesthetic reasons. For starters, kitchen subway tile backsplash ideas are easy to find when searching online. In fact, subway tiles are more popular than ever before with a new range of sizes to choose from. In the past, 2” x 6” tiles were the standard; however, that size has now shifted to 3” x 6”.

These tiles are available in natural stone, glass, ceramic, and porcelain. This makes subway tiles perfect for use on almost any home, regardless of its size, décor or age. Original subway tiles were flat all the way to the edge and were set with very small grout lines; this made it very easy to clean, unlike mosaic tiles.

A glass tile is not only beautiful but is also luminescent. When placed near any light source, glass tile seems to glow from within. Ceramic tile is affordable. It can be set in many different patterns and comes in a wide color range. If you have a limited budget, ceramic is the perfect choice; porcelain is beautiful but more expensive. A smart consumer will use the more affordable tiles for the majority of the backsplash and use porcelain on the accents only.

Subway tile ideas include plain white tiles with little or no design element to multi-colored tiles placed in such a way as to create unique and intricate patterns. When restoring an older home it is important to keep the “original feel” and the best way to do that is by utilizing materials that match as closely as possible to the original. Subway tiles are perfect for older homes since this type of tile is more forgiving; especially, when trying to place on a slightly, crooked wall.

A kitchen subway tile backsplash will be the focal point of any food preparation area. A tile backsplash is easy to clean and will last through years of use. Update your kitchen, easily and affordably with attractive subway tiles.

Black Subway Tile Kitchen Backsplash

One type of backsplash look that may not have been considered is a black tile backsplash. Whether they are used solely on their own or as a part of a more complete effect, black subway tiles deliver great depth to the walls. It is not often that you would consider a completely black wall in the kitchen although it would work very nicely if used against a backdrop of light or white colored kitchen cabinets and a light colored counter top.

One of the very effective ways in which black subway tiles can be used in the kitchen is as a row of highlighting tiles within a white backsplash. The black tiles can help to define a certain part of the wall or can describe a delineating height to take note of.

White Subway Tile Kitchen Backsplash

Here is the more traditional looking subway tiles used for a kitchen backsplash. The white tiles provide a nice ultra-clean backsplash that should be easy to keep clean, particularly if the subway tiles are the more modern glass subway tiles. White tiles can be used in just about any situation and will add style to the room. They will offset the counters nicely and will sit well behind stoves and sinks alike.

There is nothing boring or unimaginative about choosing to lay a white subway tile backsplash on the kitchen walls. In fact it can look ultra chic.

Among the many subway tile kitchen design ideas are different sized tiles from the larger sizes that we would consider to be a standard subway tile down to the smaller mini subway tiles that have become increasingly popular. Also very effective is a mixture of subway tile colors that create a sparkling mosaic effect. A long skinny subway tile can be very effective for creating a backsplash look that appears to be flowing along the wall. By being careful with your backsplash subway tiles patterns you can turn your kitchen into an ultra modern looking room.

A particularly strong kitchen design can be achieved by taking into consideration the surrounding features when determining the tiles that you are going to use. Creating a strong kitchen sink and subway tile combination will ensure that the effect will work in both cases - the sink and the backsplash should look as though they belong to one another.

Backsplashes For Kitchens

In order for a backsplash to be as effective as it is attractive it must be able to fulfil its role as a protective coating for the wall. The role of the backsplash is to ensure the wall does not become damaged from constant water splashes. As a secondary function, the backsplash should add some kind of decorative feature to the kitchen and there are many ways in which both functions may be achieved.

The backsplash may be used to protect the wall behind the sink, the stove or it may run along the entire length of the counter as a feature that reaches to around head height. There are also many backsplash ideas for kitchens that provide a bright and colorful addition to the room.

Displayed below are just a few examples of the many choices available to you in creating some great kitchen backsplash ideas.

Materials Used For Backsplashes

Tiles

There are many different types of tiles that can be used to create a beautiful and effective backsplash. One thing you should ensure is that you do not use a porous or unglazed tile for use behind the sink or cooktop. Should you make this mistake you will find that the tiles will become permanently stained or discoloured from the food or grease that spatters onto them.

It's not necessary to spend a huge amount of money on your tile backsplash with many opportunities to go to a tile supplier and browse through their selection of discount tiles. It will look just as impressive if you install a discount tile backsplash compared to one that you had to pay full price for.

The following are some of the various options that you may consider when looking for a tile backsplash.

Ceramic / Porcelain

Although this may be considered the most commonly used backsplash material it is also an option that gives you tremendous versatility. You may go for a simple white backsplash or something far more inventive such as a ceramic mural featuring a work of art that has been recreated on a set of ceramic tiles. Just about anything is possible when using ceramic tiles to create a decorative backsplash.

Glass Tiles

Glass tiles have been used for centuries in creating decorative wall features and as mosaic tiles they are especially useful and widely used. There are many different sizes and styles still available that will allow you to create an individual look. The glass tiles displayed here is one of the more creative ways in which it can be used as a glass tile backsplash.

Tile Murals

We have already seen how ceramic tiles can be used to creative extremely decorative wall features that are used as backsplashes in the kitchen. Tile murals may be made from just about any type of tiles from travertine to marble and Talavera. Displayed above is the type of way in which Talavera tiles might be used to create a decorative mural of your own design.

Mosaic Tile

There are any number of different types of mosaic tiles available to create a backsplash for the kitchen. Mosaic tiles are made from ceramics, stainless steel, marble, granite, glass, travertine and Talavera. Any of the other materials displayed on this page are used to create mosaic tiles. They may be part of a mixture of colors or a single shade and they are all very effective in creating your backsplash. More reading on the blue backsplash tiles page.

Metal

Metal backsplashes for kitchens is another popular option and when they are used in conjunction with metal countertops or in the same type of metal as the sinks, they can look particularly effective. Here are a few examples of some great metal backsplash ideas.

Stainless Steel

The clean finish of stainless steel will look particularly effective in the modern kitchen and will complement any metal surfaces that can also be found in the room. It is a material that will be easy to keep clean and will provide you with a well functioning backsplash as well. While it looks fantastic when installed as plain panels you will also be able to use slightly more decorative types such as the quilted stainless steel displayed above.

Natural Stone

Everyone loves the look and feel of natural stone and there are some great examples of the way it can be used to create the most beautiful backsplashes possible. Choose from natural stone choices such as travertine, granite, marble, limestone, slate with other lesser used stone also found. Pictured above is a travertine mosaic tiles displaying the versatility of the stone.

Granite

Granite is another remarkably versatile stone that allow you the choice of a wide variety of different colors. A granite backsplash may be light blue, dark brown, speckled or shot with veins. It may be plain dark or incredibly light and it will provide you with a gorgeous wall. One of the perfect instances where a granite backsplash is going to look spectacular is when used in conjunction with a granite countertop. Backsplashes for granite countertops may be made from just about any material you prefer but matching the counter with a granite backsplash would complete an outstanding effect.

Marble

Marble is the hardest of the calcium carbonate natural stones and is also available in a very wide array of tones and colors ranging from black through to white and just about any color in between. It makes a very attractive backsplash and it will suit just about all styles of kitchens.

Limestone

Limestone is a natural stone style that is softer than Travertine tiles and is generally more consistent in color. You will find that limestone will be available in shades from off-white through to gray and even some light browns. It is a stone that also has a lot of variation in quality with the softest type of limestone much cheaper than those that are harder and denser. You won’t find dark marks or veins running through it like you do with other stone tiles such as marble, Travertine or granite.

Slate

Like the other types of natural stone backsplashes, slate provides you with a natural stone look that varies subtly in color even when you use tiles from the same color palette. Using slate creates a rustic appearance that is ideal for an older style kitchen or you are hoping to achieve a rough finish.

Glass

Glass is one of the most versatile of materials that can be altered to suit just about any surroundings you might be able to imagine. There are many ways in which  you can use glass backsplashes for kitchens in the most creative of effects and color combinations. Take a look at a few of the glass backsplash options that might be available to you.

Coloured Glass

Using colored glass allows you the opportunity to provide a splash of color along a single wall to highlight the area through the backsplash itself. Placing benchtop lighting behind the glass throwing light up behind the glass provides an even more effective way of turning the area into a particularly memorable wall. A colored glass backsplash opens up the possibilities to just how innovative you would like to be.

Mirrored

A mirrored backsplash takes the glass finish a step further to provide you with a surface that will reflect all around the room. A mirrored backsplash can look very effective, particularly when the wall is enclosed by over counter cabinets that might otherwise darken the area.

Decorate With Retro Kitchen Curtains

So what would you need to make some cheerful retro kitchen curtains? The typical kitchen was dressed with nice bright colors and large prints and perhaps a nice treatment at the top as something different and fun to tie them to the curtain rod with. The retro era was all about experimentation and the result was some design styles that were very questionable as far as taste is concerned. As long as you have fun there is little you can do wrong when hanging retro curtains.

A great way to get the retro theme happening is with the right colors and red and white would be the perfect way to go. A very typical red and white curtain would be some kind of checked curtain the type that would be also known widely as gingham. Alternatively you might choose to go with a pattern that consists of solid colors at the top and bottom with a printed design featuring in between on a white background. The type of print doesn’t really matter although generally speaking if it is nice and bold then it is going to provide you with the effect that you will be after.

When you imagine your retro kitchen curtains you should also try to imagine the type of kitchen that it would have been featuring in. Back in the fifties and sixties the decor of a retro kitchen would have featured a lot of Formica, particularly the bench tops and perhaps also the kitchen table. Burnt orange seemed to have become a preferred choice when going through the palette of way-out and wacky colors. The kitchen cabinets were usually painted and once again the colors were often bold and brutal.

The seating in a retro kitchen would have most likely have featured some kind of vinyl covering over chrome tubing, possibly tending toward the space ace in design and promise.

There is no way known that among all of this garish melange of color and experimentation with materials that the curtains hanging in front of the kitchen windows were going to be anything less that bold and loud.

If you are going to decorate your kitchen following a retro style then the one thing that you simply must do when you get to the curtains is have fun with them. Rather than design them with simple tab tops, use bows, make sure they stand out but also make sure that they are breezy and they can be drawn back to let in the maximum amount of light possible.

Breakfast Nook Decorations

The way in which your home is characterized will have a lot to do with the thought that has gone into specialist areas throughout. If the design has been carefully thought out and the decorative features are added then the space is going to work regardless of how small or large it may be. A breakfast nook is a perfect example of how this might be the case because it is a small area that can be simply thrown together leaving it looking like a forgettable area and losing the potential that a nicely decorated nook can achieve.

The breakfast nook is a small room just off your kitchen that is usually only large enough to hold a breakfast table and chairs. Because the room is so functional, there typically is not room for much decoration or extra pieces. As a result, you just use the utilitarian items  as your decorations or as ways to add decoration.

For example, you can use your windows as a way to add texture, color, and style to the room. Natural light is great, but direct sunlight in your eyes while you are eating can be annoying. That is why most people use window treatments of some kind; to block, diffuse or filter the direct sunlight. However, these window treatments create an interesting side effect in that you can add different colors, textures, and lines to the space as well. I think the best combination is some sheer curtains or blinds to deal with the sunlight and some permanently tied back curtains and a window valence for decoration.

Another way that you can use items already in the breakfast nook as decorating opportunities is with the table and chairs. On the table top you can add a vase with flowers for some extra color. The flowers do not have to be real. Even silk flowers are a nice addition to a bright and sunny room. You can also use placemats for a touch of color or texture. In addition, during holiday seasons you can have special placemats that will bring a touch of fun to your kitchen and breakfast nook.

Finally, breakfast nook cushions are a great way to dress up the room. Whether you have chairs or bench seating, you can find cushions that will bring color and comfort to your breakfast nook. If you have a corner breakfast nook bench that is especially deep, you can even add throw pillows to the bench for additional comfort.
