A small kitchen can provide a number of unique design challenges in terms of decorating and optimizing spaces, but there are also several benefits of a smaller space, including efficiency of design and the lower cost involved in refurbishing less square footage.
There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course, every homeowner‘s definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you, there are several ways to approach the design, from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.
If artistic expression doesn‘t line up with your idea of a cool backsplash, you may want to consider some non-traditional materials, or even traditional ones in unique textures and colors. For example, stainless steel, copper and tin backsplashes can be found in colors and patterns that can lend a truly stunning visual aspect to any kitchen design. Granite or even ceramic tile can be scored, manipulated and colored to your exact specifications via tile specialty retailers. And some homeowners even opt for wood backsplashes, which can of course be stained and painted to reflect exactly the right amount of cool to suit your style.
Several styles of ceramic kitchen backsplash tile appear again and again in homes, with good reason. Subway tile is an immensely popular, classic choice that can be found in many commercial and residential kitchens. Its simple, uncomplicated style features rectangular ceramic tiles, usually in white or light colors, with light grout. While this is the most popular subway tile style, it comes in a wide variety of colors and sizes, and the simple, rectangular shape can be arrayed in just about any pattern—so customization is definitely possible.
