Glass tiles in types of forms, like these in the shape of subway tiles, continues to be well-known for kitchen backsplashes.
Lori Carroll, inside Designer: essentially the most well-known choices today are travertine, record or granite in a number of kinds. Arbitrarily or as a border, I also use lumber and material accent tiles to incorporate much more measurement to a backsplash. Colors, over actual product, most likely tends to make a kitchen appearance dated. Neutrals and sometimes even brilliant colors tend to be distinctly more desirable than "pretty" pastel tones of the past.
Anna Marie Fanelli, Showroom Owner: the latest backsplash product is cup! In every structure: sticks, mosaics, 4-inch x 12-inch, 12-inch x 12-inch, and let's remember custom glass patterns. In addition, rock is always well-known, specially water-jet borders and patterned formats. The tumbled distressed rocks seem to be less preferred.
Lori Kirk-Rolley, Tile Industry Professional: Basic tumbled stone backsplashes without attractive elements have lost appeal, but incorporating an attractive element or any other kinds of tile in to the backsplash design, as well as the tumbled rock, can make a beautiful yet timeless backsplash.
Verdict: ornamental elements-like borders made up of various materials-add fresh attract the obsolete appearance of basic tumbled stone backsplashes. Glass tile remains hot, and manufacturers anticipate it to continue as a popular material choice for backsplashes.
