Map it out. The backsplash is quite literally one of the first things you notice when you enter a kitchen, therefore, you should take special care in planning your backsplash design. It must not only be beautiful, the backsplash must tie the entire room together. Make sure to consider all the elements such as the countertop, floors, cabinets, and wall color when selecting your tile. More importantly, take time to plan the placement of tiles: Where will you start? What happens at the edges? Are the edges filled with awkward cuts? Typically, you start in the middle of the wall and work you way out.
Kitchen Islands can have some additional design options like breakfast bars and installed appliances which can achieve the 'triangle' design of sink-stove-refrigerator that is considered one of the top kitchen design ideas. Kitchen Islands are also available in many styles and designs such as: Contemporary, Traditional, American Folk and French Country.
Choose your style. A kitchen backsplash is the finishing touch that can make or break a room so it must be in sync with the rest of the kitchen. Backsplash designs really do work best when they echo the kitchen theme. It just doesn't make sense to have a retro style backsplash in a French country kitchen. Create the mood. In addition to the size, pattern, and shape, there is a factor much harder to put into words: aesthetics. Your choice of material, as well as pattern, should reflect the mood you hope to achieve. Do you prefer rustic or modern, subdued or vibrant, sleek or textured? Every material has a different character.
