Creative Tile Backsplashes
A kitchen backsplash used to be a standard four inches high, behind the stove and sink as protection from moisture and grease, but over the years designers have gotten creative with the materials and colors used in the backsplash to the point where it has become an important design feature. Today you'll find backsplashes made of concrete, natural stone, metals, tile mosaics, glass and even ceramics. Everything from ultra-modern patterned tiles to sleek stones can be used to create an interesting design element that you will love for years. Have a look at some unique backsplash design ideas.
