The kitchen backsplash, although it may seem simple and purely utilitarian, is actually a fascinating feature. The backsplash has a double role. On one hand, it’s there for practical reasons, protecting the wall from spills and cooking-related accidents. On the other hand, it’s a visual feature which provides us with the perfect opportunity to get creative and to try all sorts of interesting and eye-catching combinations of colors and shapes. A geometric backsplash design is only one of the many options.
Geometric designs usually suit modern and contemporary kitchens. It’s possible to combine two or more colors which define the overall décor of the space or which at least allow the design to stay cohesive. Yellow and gray form a chic combo here.
When the kitchen is neutral and there are no other elements that stand out, the backsplash can become a welcomed source of color and pattern. A geometric design allows it to stay simple and abstract.
Although typically two or three colors are enough to make a backsplash stand out, a more variate palette of colors can also be used. This design is vibrant and striking without being overpowering and the backsplash is a refreshing feature for the brown décor.
There’s no rule saying that a backsplash should have a symmetrical design. These tiles would have formed a simple herringbone design if not for the unusual twist. The apparently random placement of the yellow tiles is actually quite well planned.
But not all geometric backsplash designs are that bold and quirky. Some are a bit more traditional and this makes them more versatile and able to suit more styles. One way to give them more colorful is through color.
This is the type of backsplash that seems pretty simple and straight-forward from a distance only to become more complex as you get closer. Small details reveal themselves transforming the design more and more.
