Stacked Pebble Wall

A simple white paneled backsplash captures the spirit of a farmhouse-style kitchen. Here, the backsplash allows the distressed green cabinets and beautiful wood countertops to shine. Stacked pebbles give a natural lakeside style to the kitchen and also protect the wall from the errant water splashes. You can choose not to grout the stones, so they appear more natural as well. Moreover classic materials, aged finishes and casual luxury sometimes makes for a more inviting space for cooking and socializing. Use an elegant material like marble in an informal manner to dress down the space a bit, without losing any of its quality and beauty.

You can also create a coveted commercial look in your kitchen by using concrete countertops and a brick backsplash. If your house doesn’t have old bricks walls, then you can use brick veneer that looks like the real thing. Some lusciously layered woodwork, plaster surfaces and ceramic and glass tiles can also give a lovely vintage look to the cooking space. If you choose one color backsplash and a clean lined tiles for a small kitchen, it will keep the look uncluttered and neat! Rich dark shades of browns and burgundy that provide warmth can be paired with pastel and white cabinetry to add a new dimension.
