January 3 at #KBtribechat – Let’s Talk Backsplashes & Accent Walls


A design discussion!

When we consider surfaces for the kitchen and bath, we typically think first about horizontal surfaces such as countertops, vanities, islands and flooring. However, it’s important also to consider vertical elements and how the creative application of materials such as natural stone can bring these areas to life in bold and unique ways.

The interesting use of surface materials on backsplashes, walls and shower enclosures merges the best of function + form – not only helping to protect walls from moisture and splatter, but also delivering depth, dimensionality and visual interest.

Available in a wide variety of materials and colors, backsplashes are a great place to play up style in the kitchen or bath. For those looking for a more dramatic look, accent walls can transform what are often viewed as utilitarian spaces into places of beauty and inspiration.

For example, distinctive slabs of natural stone can be placed behind a bathtub or sink to create a dramatic focal point or be used as a stunning backdrop for a shower enclosure. Backlit stones such as onyx are particularly striking in this type of application.

Mosaics, inlays, tiles and “book matched” materials provide another way to capture the eyes while also enabling individual expression through interesting patterns and color combinations.

Whether choosing neutral hues to create a soothing, organic backdrop or opting to add a pop of color, the inspired use of vertical surfaces enables us to see kitchen and bathroom spaces in a new light.

Our KBtribechat discussion questions:

Q1)  Do you have a go-to material that you use for backsplashes? Why that material?
Q2)  Solid backsplash or tile/mosaic (patterned) backsplash – what’s your preference? Photos please.

Q3)  When it comes to backsplashes/shower surrounds for the bathroom, what are your favorite materials?

Q4)  What are some of the most interesting kitchen/bath accent walls treatments you’ve seen?

Q5)  Standard backsplashes, ceiling height backsplashes – or something in between?

Q6)  For vertical surfaces, do you opt for neutrals or color? Matte or shine? Let’s see examples.

Q7)     What exciting new trends do you see for vertical surfaces in the kitchen and bath?
