Blue Backsplash Tile for Your Kitchen
You can use accents to turn your ho-hum kitchen into a real eye-catcher. Hardwood cabinets and granite or marble counters are nice, but they're not necessarily flashy. Preview this kitchen in which a tile backsplash and other touches add a ton of pizazz. This kitchen is defined by its accents. The ceramic glass-topped electric range, oak cabinets and drawers with brushed nickel pulls, and granite counters are nice enough, but unremarkable. What makes this kitchen aren't the appliances or cabinets, but rather the personal touches. Most striking is the blue glass tile backsplash, which infuses much-needed color and brightness in an otherwise subdued room. The glass front cabinets over the kitchen sink similarly add color and depth. Other touches, such as the cubbie shelves to the left of the sink and the wire spice rack mounted on the stainless steel, effectively liven up this kitchen. A final touch that helps rescue this kitchen from being ordinary is the seagrass carpet. In addition to being an environmentally friendly material, seagrass carpet is also much more comfortable under foot and forgiving to dropped glass and dinnerware than more traditional flooring options such as tile or hard wood.
