Backsplash help please - design behind range

Posted by allnewappliances (My Page) on

Hi all - we finished our kitchen in mid October - haven't had a chance to post pics b/c I would actually need to take pictures of the new kitchen to do that :-) but we are starting to think about backsplash.
I have reviewed the finished pics on the blog site and went through the backsplash slideshow....but would love to see more pictures of backsplash behind the range - did you do a mosaic or border a tile decoration or just keep the same as the backsplash of the rest of the kitchen.
I have Kashmir gold granite, wood floors and the cherry cabs are finished in brown with a glaze.
I would appreciate pictures of your backsplash and would love to see how you designed behind your range or stove.
Thanks!

RE: Backsplash help please - design behind range

I had wanted to do something different behind the range, then I got on the "less is more" kick. So then I started thinking of maybe using the same tiles but changing the pattern back there....but then the arabesque tiles came into my life and the rest is history. I like not having a focal point behind the range.

So sorry to post this photo again...but here it is:

I am a fan of beekeepers backsplash. It is a beautiful tile with her granite.

I wanted to focus on my backsplash and have my counter more tonal. So, I went with a tile decoration above the rangetop, and then a similar
design on the opposite wall above the clean up sink. Took me a while to pull all the elements together. It was a splurge, but it makes me
very happy everyday!

Beekeeperswife. I love that; is it an inspiration pic or your kitchen? If the latter please post more! I'm not a fan of behind the range focal points either especially if they have pot fillers which usually destroy the symmetry.

doonie, I LOVE your tile. They make a bee tile....oh, how I wanted that to work in my kitchen! But of course it didn't and they didn't make it in other colors.

Island, that is indeed my kitchen. I won the tile in a contest and that is one of the professional photos that was taken. Here are more. Again, apologies to the community for posting these yet again.

no apologies-- i could look at your kitchen all day long!
but as much as i love tile and mosaics, i detest dirty grout, so behind my range we're going with a slab of metal or stone.
hth!

Hi, I didn't have much space above my range, but still wanted a little bling!:)

Thanks for posting the pictures. Everyone's backsplash is so nice...I think for me picking out the bs will be one of the hardest decisions for my kitchen renovation.

Please continue to post all pictures.

Thanks!

Hi Allnew,

Here are some BS pics. I tried to find something to go with
your Kashmir Gold. The important part is the visual of
ideas for behind the range. Hope they help you.

I went for very simple, used the same accent tile as elsewhere around the room and just rowed it up over the range. A decidedly not very professional shot at dinnertime:

Thanks Boxerpups! I was so hoping you would reply to my post!! I am always doing searches through the web when deciding diff aspects of the kitchen, but your pictures are always so fabulous! There are a few of your pics that caught my eye...so thank you!

Hi Boxer again - do you remember where you found the pic that has the header Wood Hood images....I really like that picture and would love to find out the name and info on the tile.

Thanks!

RE: Backsplash help please - design behind range

Thanks, boxerpups! This was so timely for me as I am just getting around to doing my backsplash. I found some great 6x6 off white crackle tiles on closeout for 1.29 sq ft! Now I just have to figure out what pattern I want to do and I have more money for some fun accent pieces.

Tracey B- what do you store in the drawers flanking the range? How mych do they hold? I'm assuming they are 24" wide. Thanks!
