When it comes to kitchen design, I’m all about spaces with character. And, there’s no better place to get creative than backsplashes. Whether you opt for peaceful patterns or glistening glitter, there’s a backsplash to suit your taste. Here are a few of my favorite bold backsplash styles.


Subtle Shapes

While colorful kitchens are all the rage in 2018, you can never go wrong with a neutral color palette. The perfect pair to a timeless traditional kitchen, soft scalloped designs are an elegant way to showcase this trend – and are particularly appealing for those who aren’t ready to jump into the color pool. While the subtle colors are classic, different shapes standout – and with shimmering stainless steel Thermador appliances to top off the look, your kitchen is sure to make a big statement.

Lively Designs

On the contrary, if you’re the type who’s drawn to the bold and adventurous aspects of life, a brighter backsplash that reflects this aesthetic may be more up your alley. Eclectic colors and fun patterns are a great way to add a lot of flair to your kitchen – and even more so when you mix and match them together. For that extra pop, infuse a livelier pattern such as a zigzag print. The design will stand out beautifully against a single-toned framework and creates the ultimate backdrop for Thermador appliances.

Gray Areas

The perfect palette for any style, gray tile backsplashes complement a variety of kitchen designs and create a supremely sophisticated look. Whether you opt for an all-white kitchen, cool monochromatic shades or a warmer toned atmosphere, a gray backsplash will wonderfully offset the space – adding dimension that can either create a tasteful backdrop or highlight special design features. Gray allows you to easily incorporate accents and accessories and perfectly pairs with Thermador appliances – whether stainless steel or custom paneled.

Glitter and Gold

For those who prefer a more luxurious look, a glittering gold backsplash can transform the most subtle of spaces into an ultra-glamorous masterpiece. The perfect addition to any chef’s kitchen, large sparkling tiles are an excellent choice for more contemporary designs – while glittering grout and subway tiles make a statement in more traditional style kitchens. No matter which style you choose, this lavish look will make everything in the kitchen pop – from Thermador appliances to decorative accent pieces.
