Make a Statement with Your Backsplash


Take your backsplash to the next level by creating an accent backsplash wall. To make a bold statement, go with a backsplash that's taller than average. Create a statement wall around your sink, or another area of the kitchen you want to emphasize. A wall and counter glazed tile shines and shimmers to reflect light and catch the eye, which is just what you want from a statement wall. After all, a backsplash can serve as more than a material that protects the walls from kitchen splashes. It can also be an artistic element that stands out and adds a special touch.

Add the Simple Beauty of Rustic Style


Rustic charm adds a beautiful touch of warmth to any modern kitchen design. When paired with the gleam of stainless appliances, stone stands out. Luckily, instead of learning masonry, you can get the same gorgeous look with Brickwork tile. This tile looks like individual bricks that have been carefully mortared into place, but it has the easy maintenance of ceramic, cleans up easily, and stands up to wear and tear. You can add the beauty of stone to your island, walls, countertops, or all of the above.

 

Give the Room More Dimension with Texture


Three-dimensional design always creates a modern look, and a textured backsplash design can add a lot to your space. Add beautiful decorative accents to your tile design with Massalia details. Metal accents can make your backsplash shine, and the 3-D design brings life and detail to the room. Choose accent tiles that are whimsical, elegant, or simple to express your personal style, and mix and match your tiles to create an amazing overall pattern.

Let Simplicity Shine with an Industrial Floor


Industrial design offers a great modern look that will make your kitchen look chic and cutting-edge. You can pair an industrial floor with traditional or modern design to create a sharp-looking kitchen that others will immediately notice. For instance, Haut Monde porcelain tile echoes the look of concrete through smooth tile. Choose a polished or unpolished tile, and pick from a variety of stonelike shades to get the look of concrete with easy-to-install ceramic tile.

Update your outdated space with new kitchen ideas that make your space look fresh, modern, and trendy. Start with these ideas, and then head to your local Daltile retail dealer to choose tile that will help you create the stunning design you've always wanted.
