Backsplash Ideas With Talavera Tiles

Creating a backsplash is a necessary part of remodelling a kitchen or of creating a completely new one. The backsplash serves the functional purpose of protecting the wall in places in the kitchen where water is most likely going to be flung into the air.

But while the backsplash is a functional part of the kitchen it doesn’t necessarily have to be a boring part as well. Using Talavera tiles will ensure that the backsplash can be turned into a bright feature of the room. If they are used imaginatively the tiles will show off other parts of the room nicely and will draw a person’s eye as they enter the room.

There are three distinctly different ways a Talavera tile backsplash might be set up, although there are many different options available within these three ideas.

The first is create a Talavera backsplash design by using closely related colors and patterns and placing them as a creative border around the existing tiled are. By oing this you will have effectively turned a section of the kitchen wall into a more formal backsplash are with the simple use of Talavera tiles. This border might be used to distinguish the backsplash from the rest of the wall and the brighter Talavera tiles might be used to accent the plain tiles located inside the bounds of the border.

The second idea is to place the Talavera tiles in a creative pattern that makes best use of similarly colored and patterned tiles. These tiles are perfectly suited for creative placement with many Talavera tile designs available using any of the hundreds of tile designs available. The way in which your backsplash is designed and set up will only be limited by your creative prowess. This type of free-form arrangement can either comprise tiles of the same pattern and colors or you may choose to mix the tiles up, using related colors to join the entire design together.

The third way in which your backsplash might be distinguished is with a Talavera tile mural. These murals can be bought as a set of tiles and you can simply install them yourself, forming a picture on the wall that can then be framed with a border of Talavera tiles for good measure.

Talavera tiles will look just as effective if they are in plain colors and will actually work better if used in conjunction with the more decorative tiles. Single color tiles are available in terracotta, yellow, red, light blue, cobalt blue, dark blue, vino and white.

Creating and Displaying Talavera Tile Murals

Talavera tiles are some the most characteristic and eclectic you can find providing a splash of color where the wall might otherwise have been left blank. There are a number of ways in which these tiles might be used but certainly the most distinctive is to form a Talavera tile mural.

Talavera tile murals allow you to create a feature display within the wall itself, simply by the judicious placement of different types of Talavera tiles. To create one of these murals you may want to sketch something out on a sheet of paper first, or you may prefer to walk through the various tile displays looking for inspirational ideas.

There are so many different types of Talavera tiles available that it is possible to not only create the body of the mural from a selection of different types of tiles arranged in geometric or random patterns, but you can also use more tiles as a border around the entire design.

One of the cautions in using Talavera tiles is to ensure that you keep an editorial eye on the room into which the tiles are being installed. Talavera tiles are so distinctive that they will quickly become overbearing if too many are used in a small area.

As well as the randomly patterned Talavera tiles that can be clustered together to form a mural that is more geometric pattern than a picture there are Talavera tiles that, when combined together form a large image on the wall. Madonna and child is a favourite of this type of design and the tiles can be pieced together in much the same way as a jigsaw puzzle.

Designing your own creative mural from a selection of Talavera tiles can be a very satisfying task, particularly when it all comes together and offsets the surrounding décor.
