Kitchen backsplash dilemma

June 21, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is a photo of the kitchen in my guest house. I don't know where to start and stop the backsplash. I tried to find a tile that would add a bit of bling but nothing appealed to me. Any help would be appreciated.

I would do an earthy stone one on the entire hood wall, and then continue it on the side under cabinets, but not above. You could do a thin natural stone subway in a herringbone pattern...

Ideally the entire wall surfaces should be tiled especially beside the stove.

Since it is a guest house, the only place you really need tiling is behind the stove. And there, you could create a focal point for the kitchen. I would encourage you to seek out a local artisan to create a truly unique and beautiful end wall.

Start at the edge of the cabinet, go all the way around keeping the same height. When you get to the stove take it all the way up and then back down to the original height as the opposite side all the way to the edge of the cabinet.

I agree. start at the outer cabinet edge , left or right edge and end then end at the outer edge as well. For your room, I'd recommend this tile http://www.glasstilestore.com/shop-by-colors-now/gray/cloudburst-free-form-cracked-joint-brick-marble-tile.html

I think it'd be spectacular to do the whole wall behind the hood in a mosaic, but I understand if you don't want to since it's a guest house. Just keep the back splash all the same height, in that case, stopping under the uppers.

For a bit of "bling" how about something like these:
