Apart from flooring, sink and countertop, the backsplash (or the wall cladding) has its own style to enhance the overall aesthetics of a kitchen. It not just adds unique aesthetical characteristics to space but also serves as a protective layer against liquid and food spills.
Years ago, wall tiles imprinted with colourful fruits and vegetable graphics was popular among homeowners. But today, with the changing trend, the application has amazingly extended over the textures, colours, patterns, sizes and designs while adding a personal touch.
However, apart from focusing on a beautiful appearance, it is also important to consider a material that stands the test of time while also making a bold statement. For instance, marble backsplash or granite backsplash take away all the praises when it comes to durability, appearance and natural variations in design.
Let’s explore more in this line before considering the installation for kitchen remodelling or renovation!
Types Of Unique Natural Stones Tiles
There are a variety of marble and granite choices that complement the interiors of the kitchen. Some of the types that add unique elegance and style are described below.
Alaska gold exotic stone gives a natural feeling to the wall cladding of the kitchen. Both in terms of architecture and aesthetics, this exotic stone enhances the interior and exterior space. If you are looking for a textured stone then this stone is the right choice for your kitchen backsplash. Installing it with a combination of different shades of exotic stone is a great option.
The blue granite owns one of the rare but extremely impressive, blue shades that go well with home appliances made of stainless steel. The blue granite backsplash bestows an exotic look to the kitchen ambience while making it feel soothing to the eyes.
Kashmir Gold Granite
The Golden hues of Kashmir Gold Granite spread a regal aura throughout the kitchen space. Yellow speckles and red flakes sprinkled on a greyish white backdrop dominate its overall beauty. The blend of colours present on the stone adds to a distinct physical appearance. Using this granite as a wall cladding in combination with light colour cabinets create magnificent space. While this not being a rule, it can go with dark cabinets, wooden furniture or chromed metals for a modern-looking space.
Maharaja Black Marble
Popularly known as Haveri Black or Dhari Black, the Maharaja Black Marble has a black background filled with white and gold patterns. Because of its shiny appearance and attractive design, the black marble is used as a decorative stone. Installing a Maharaja Black Marble backsplash makes the kitchen space look highly attractive while maintaining the durability for years.
The Wall Cladding Look You Desire!
To make the kitchen look best in appearance, it is important to consider the colour, texture, size and patterns.
The size used in natural stone wall tiles has a direct impact on the look and maintenance. Big size tiles, for example, the subway tiles bestow a clean elegant look while being very easy to maintain. In addition, if the wall cladding is extended until the ceiling, it creates a feeling of uniformity and looks excellent.
On the other hand, slabs provide a different appearance as they are continuous with few breaks. Rather than installing individual small tiles, few slabs occupying the entire backsplash area have their own bold look to impress. For example, a marble backsplash with dense veining patterns can be installed to create a streamlined kitchen cabinet.
The surface or the polish of the stone tile is becoming popular as homeowners are looking for more unique and dazzling backsplash for kitchen. The glossy wall cladding that reflects as a mirror-like surface brightens up the kitchen especially when there is a lot of space for the natural light to come in. Conversely, lighting all over the kitchen can also bring out a dramatic effect. The mirror effect intensifies, even more, when the backsplash is of ceiling height.
Mosaic tile backsplash in combination with an array of natural stones is one of the perfect choices for kitchen space. Mosaic wall tiles are available in a linear pattern that is high in demand among modern homeowners. The wonderful aspect of linear mosaic tiles is that one can install them vertically or horizontally, as per the desired appearance.
The traditional graphic patterns have now evolved to offer more attractive and sophisticated looks to the kitchen. Graphics have opened doors for endless wall cladding patterns. But in case of natural stones, the hexagonal mosaic is another great option that resembles the appearance of graphical patterns on the wall. It creates depth and dimension that envies. If the textured surface is the preference, hexagonal tiles win the race. Marble backsplashes including black, beige, grey and white veining are an amazing option when going for hexagonal mosaic.
Besides, kitchen wall cladding that uses the same colour and pattern used on flooring, cabinetry and countertops reflects an interconnected, warm and welcoming environment. This proves to be a fabulous design possibility.
