A simple, solid color can work on a kitchen backsplash, but chances are it´ll feel too boring over time. If you want to add some drama to your walls without relying on tiles, try stenciling a design, favorite quote, food-related words, or a beloved family recipe on your backsplash.
Yellow, red, blue, white, green and gray are all popular paint colors for kitchen walls. Yellow is a cheerful shade that can create a welcoming space while red can feel intense; both are believed to stimulate the appetite. Blue, white, green and gray are more low-key, calming shades.
Tuscan kitchens are often accented by elegant designs, like an ornate wood range hood over a stove, or handmade tiles to provide an Old World look to a backsplash. Copper fixtures, distressed stone and wood floors are common in Tuscan kitchen designs. Add decorative vases of bright sunflowers to countertops to give the room a natural spot of color. While the overall feeling of a Tuscan kitchen should be family-friendly, the room should feel grand upon entering.
The traditional kitchen allows for flexibility, but it most often relies on simple design while making way for a few bold accents. For example, a white kitchen with black granite countertops might include a standout centerpiece, like a bold red kitchen island. These design choices maintain the overall look of a traditional kitchen while adding a bit of spunk to the design.
