Beautiful Backsplashes:Links to BreathTaking Pictures & Resources

cupofkindnessJune 21, 2004

This thread is to provide links or in-text pictures of backsplashes that, unlike the other backsplash thread in the Gallery, are not a forum member's own backsplash. It is also to provide links/pictures to inspiring manufacturers and designers, tiles, stones, metals, glass and other materials that are backsplash elements. Please limit "conversations" about various links to the "Discussions" section of the Kitchen Forum so that this thread can be a resources list only. Please, please post any completed backsplashes or materials that you have come across as you have worked on your own backsplash. Let's start this thread with the gorgeous red tile backsplash that Sharon G found for me on a "Discussions" side of the Kitchen Forum. Thank you!

Sharon:
That WZ backsplash tile is so richly textured. The muted colors are stunning. Is it four colors or five? I love it. It's very calming, but without being boring. What a great choice. Here's another link. This is Meredith Tile and shows some of their glazes. Lots of lovely whites and creams. Plus crackles.

Here is a clean, classic look. This links to the Kohler ad that uses white subways and a white Corian-type countertop. The grout is nice and wide, so the backsplash/wall takes on a brick and mortar look.

In April I started a thread about subway tile. That thread fell of the "Discussions" side of the Fourm today, so I'm trying to save the links while I can still access that cached thread. Here's another dazzling tile source in the UK. They have a service called "Welbeck Words" and will custom mold text into what appear to be subway-type tiles.

Yet another rescued link to Meredith Tile's Irongate Tile. I love this backsplash because the framed area above the range is so lovely. The molding tile and square embossed tiles are pretty and the 2" corresponding accent tiles give you some design flexibility.

I love those Ann Sacks tiles! One inspired me, the diagonal pale green ones with the inset square dots. Femmelady, what a breath-taking backsplash. Thanks for posting the decorative metal tiles and the onyx! Where can I see your whole kitchen? And lowspark, I nearly went to 12" tiles on the diagonal after I saw that backsplash. Grapes are so classic. You'll never run out of accessories and accent pieces with a grape theme. And if you run out, all you have to is go and buy a bottle of wine (or just grapes!). Gorgeous!

Here is a link to a faux tile Corian backsplash. I am eternally in love with blue and white in the crisp look of this kitchen. The countertops are "Mediterranean." My mother talked me out of that blue Corian color (I have Vanilla instead), but it will always be the one that gets my heart pumping! I also appreciate the practicality of the mini-backsplash in the countertop color. Lifting the main backsplash design up an inch or two is a good idea to keep things a little cleaner.

I did find a website for the glass border - they have some beautiful stuff. I'm glad I didn't find this site before I ordered my border because I would have really driven myself nuts figuring out what I wanted. Luckily, the tile store had just what I wanted already made up as a sample.

Cupofkindness--
I love your style! Everything you like seems to resonate with me. I'm the original Welbeck tile-lover, and you surprised me with the link you provided for Blue Bell Kitchens--that's who is doing my kitchen! The Welbecks were just too expensive for me--I'm going with white subways with a framed herringbone area above the AGA. The frame may have a little egg-and-dart detail, but I haven't made the final selection yet, as the tile person has gone on vacation for 2 wks. I still covet the Welbeck words, but I broke the bank on cabinets, the AGA, and the soapstone.

At Cup's request, here is a link to my finished kitchen.

My backsplash is a Eurosplash -- in the European style it goes from countertop to ceiling. It's composed of Ann Sacks Sur La Mer 4 x 4" glazed handmade Mexican tiles in 4 colors: azure (blue), oyster (white), ochre (yellow), and foam (grey). There is a bullnose piece with 1 rounded edge used for the exposed side.

These are handmade tiles and while they measure 4 x 4, they are irregular and actually measure about 4-3/8" each. So we added far too much overage and ended up with almost double the amount of tile we needed (it's in my basement and I will either use it or sell it on ebay).

I created a pattern so the repeats of the colors wouldn't form optical patterns and drive me crazy. But the tilesettle had a difficult time creating the pattern due to the irregularity of the tiles. Many were trimmed and beveled to look whole but they were not!

I sealed the grout with Aquamix 511 sealer and so far, even spaghetti sauce wipes right off. Glazed tiles clean beautifully with windex and nothing sticks or penetrates.

Gail:
Your backsplash is a masterpiece. When I look at the range backsplash, based on the pictures, the harlequin tile appears to be woven. Wow! Thank you for posting the link.

Jane:

How smart to create a wall that appears random to avoid an optical pattern. I adore your backsplash. It's clean looking and I love the squares of color. That's the best way I can say it. Thanks to you as well for posting your backsplash.

Cupofkindness, thanks so much for starting this thread. What stunning backsplashes! So much inspration. For my kitchen I fell in love with the Welbeck word sample. I have found a site that has some great fonts for word stencils and I'm considering that option.

Who knows how many more times I'll change my mind!

Forgive me if this site is a repeat, as there are so many great ones listed above. When I was looking for Craftsman style photos I found a really cool site and fell in love with the loon backsplash.

peachdragon - this is a beautiful backsplash! Please post another pic after you've grouted, it's amazing how much difference grout makes and I bet it will be even prettier. Hey, is that the omnipotent miracle cloth I see there? :)
Here's my backsplash:

Here's a link to my webshots, scroll down to bottom of page to see the backsplash featured on page 112 of July/August BHG Kitchens. The backsplash is "Italianate rowhouses" composed by Victoria Hamman. The pictures are labeled BHG backsplash, BHG2 and bhg4. I don't know who produces the actual tiles. Sorry the pictures aren't any better, but you can get the idea.

This is in my webshots page under Favorite House Ideas. I have absolutely no idea where I got this photo from, possibly from a Gardenwebbers' post. Anyway, I think it's beautiful.

Here is an example of IKEA accessories that can be mounted on the backsplash. Several others manufacture backsplash rail systems that allow the open storage of kitchen utensils, spices, knives, paper towels, etc.

Please tell me who had the backsplash that had fall leaves cascading down the wall. I think it was Sweeby, but I'm not sure. I couldn't get the picture to open. That is my inspiration backsplash and I can't find it!

Funny you should ask right before I visited this thread for the first time in ages! -- Yup, it was me. The bar's not completely done, but you can see the splash.

And Here's our kitchen splash -- Walker Zanger Gramercy Park crackle subways in Bone China, Sommerset handpainted liner, and Base molding set upside-down.

Does anybody have a saved copy of "the other backsplash thread in the Gallery"... the one with forum members' own backsplashes? I'd like to add it to the Finished Kitchens blog. (Many folks have recently requested more info on backsplashes.)

If we can't find it, is anyone willing to start a new thread?

Since I am currently going through the process of trying to find a reasonably priced glass tile in 4x4 or subway, I have a long list of links to suppliers. I won't mention those already provided like Dilemme or Maestro Mosaics (best price, by the way) but here are a bunch that haven't been listed yet. Enjoy! Lynda

Bungalyn:

Thank you for posting such a wonderful list of suppliers. It really helps to have a lot of resources available when working on your backsplash design.

And everyone else:

Thank you to those who have posted on this thread. Please keep posting only finished backsplashes links/pictures and/or information on the tiles/elements you've found in your search for the perfect backsplash for your kitchen. Thanks again!

Melissa K's Backsplash Query:
Does anyone know what white subway tile Melissa K. used on the backsplash behind her burgundy Lacanche. I love the effect but can't determine the manufacturer. I believe she posted in May of 2005 and had a beautiful hand painted mural behind the range. Thanks so much to anyone who can figure this out.

Such a great thread and one that still holds interest now, more than three years after it was started. Yet many of the samples aren't viewable because the links are now unavailable.

If you have the time and no-how, please take a minute to post the picture into your message rather than just the link. It will keep your interesting ideas viewable long after the site is gone.

Thanks!

Hi. I am looking for a resource for Antique green (color)tiles for a backsplash in my new 100 yr old kitchen. Not a flat solid green, but one with depth that kind of fades to the edge of the tiles?

My new kitchen is a reproduction of what the old one may have looked like, with custom made cupbboards so it's wood and cream colored walls. The butlers pantry is painted an antique green though and would like the backsplash green.
For green being such a timeless and popular color, you sure can't find it out there!
Thank You soooo much for any info!

I found some beautiful mediterranean murals at the link below. Some of the tiles are Iznik tile reproductions and others are Moorish and Ottoman inspired tiles.

I also found a pretty traditional mural on the featured design of the month.

Does anyone know of a company other than the one mentioned earlier-Bisazza-that Expo used to carry? I checked out their website & can't seem to find anything for the range area. Expo is now out of business & my neighbor had gotten a backsplash design over her range from Expo. I wanted to something simple and flat and yet have some focal interest to it.

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone have a resource for more rustic tile? I am looking for non-brick, at least 4 x 4, in tan, gold, and red, probably ceramic, slate or other stone. Tried some of the older links, but they are no longer working.

This is a link to a website (hope it comes through) for the request for rustic tiles. I found Ken Mason Tiles in a magazine. They are beautiful hand-made, hand painted tiles from California. Using them for my entire backsplash turned out to be "beyond my budget", but they do have a slection of "Overruns" on the web site for 1/2 price.

I was able to pick out individual 3 x 3 tiles from the overruns to use as accents in my 4 x 4" tumbled travertine marble backsplash. They make me happy ever time I look at them. I love the "culinarios" (fruits and vegetables) and, especially, the cherub tile that is next to my sink.
