Ever considered simply painting your backsplash without actually using anything else? You can pretty much create any pattern and design you want. In this case, a herringbone pattern was chosen. To make something similar, you need a lot of tape. Decide on a size for your painted tiles. Then make tiny pencil marks on the wall to know where the grout lines should go. After that, make the horizontal lines and start taping and painting. It’s tricky and you need lots of spare time for a project like this but it’s also really original.
Given the reduced dimensions of this kitchen, certain measures needed to be taken in order to maintain a functional and airy décor. The kitchen island is quite small and, in addition, it features a very simple design with only one shelf underneath. The walls were painted black and this makes the white cabinets stand out more.
Though, there is always one problem related to black appliances. As most of the people don’t know how to compile the colors from their kitchen in order to look good – quite astonishing in some professional cases ‐, even though they have bought new, expensive and elegant black appliances, they can’t decorate their kitchen cleverly. What could be the result of such a thing? A total mess, of course, or in the best case, just another kitsch.
If you are the proud owner of a small apartment with a very small kitchen space, fear not because there are incredible simple solutions which will make the area look good while keeping it functional. The biggest issue with small kitchen spaces can be a claustrophobic feeling, but there are a few tricks you can use to make it look bigger and brighter. As the image shows, adding a mirror backsplash over this stove caused the light to double by reflecting the window from across the room.
We have taken and used chalkboard paint ideas here before and if I remember correctly, we mentioned this particular idea as well. The reason chalkboard paint can be a great backsplash idea is because of the ever changing possibilities. You can write a new funny message everyday, list a favorite recipe, draw funny faces, or cover the area with an artful design to name a few. The particular pattern seen in this image shows alternating shapes and tones of light and dark achieved through the use of a stick of chalk.
