Northern Liberties, Philadelphia: Eclectic Kitchen BacksplashTraditional Kitchen, Philadelphia
What Houzz contributors are saying:
This striking Cuban Heritage Design handmade cement tile backsplash is best shown off against an otherwise simple and neutral kitchen, where its personality can shine. The swing-arm wall sconces are a handsome and unexpected way to light a kitchen counter, too.
Exuberantly patterned tile can be modern, too. These Cuban Heritage cement tiles are gorgeous in this otherwise unadorned kitchen.
The process of making encaustic cement tiles, like these, has been around for hundreds of years, so it's no wonder that so many cultures have their own traditional styles and patterns. Pick a bold one for your kitchen and use the pattern's colors as a basis for the room's palette.
