White Tile Backsplash
Updated: Mar 18, 2022
When it comes to kitchen backsplash ideas, the classic subway brick layout that once dominated was usurped by herringbone pattern and it looks like vertical arrangements are set to be the next big kitchen tile trend. Tumbled edges, imperfect colorful and crackled glazes give this ordered, upright design a more relaxed, artisan feel too. Look out for longer, leaner tiles and delicate finger mosaics (pictured), inspired by Japanese design, to bring texture and character to the kitchen.
Lisa Ebey of Kitchen Krafter has seen this style growing in popularity, 'Often described as Kit-Kat or finger mosaics, the glazing style is reminisoent of historic techniques used on ceramics in Japan. The depth and colors of the glazes is what strikes a chord. The tiles come as mosaic sheets so are relatively simple to custom fit to size.'
