Best Backsplash for Small White Kitchen

Kitchens are the heart of our homes where we spend most of our time. That’s why, designing a kitchen that meets personal needs and tastes is important to provide both functional and aesthetically pleasing space. However, kitchens do not always have large and spacious spaces. And when it comes to designing a small kitchen, color scheme becomes a crucial point to make the space feel larger. If you are working on a small kitchen space or one lacking natural light, a white color scheme will always be the most failsafe option to give a spacious feel.

When it comes to choosing a backsplash for a small white kitchen, options are endless. Before your final decision, you need to consider what kind of kitchen look you desire. For example, if you want to complete the bright and fresh appeal of the white cabinets, a white backsplash will make the perfect pair. On the other hand, you can create a focal point and add depth by using darker backsplash tiles. Colorful backsplash tiles are also popular choices for white kitchens to break the sterilized feel and make a fun touch.

If your kitchen has a small space, you need to create surfaces that make the space feel larger. And to achieve this goal, glass tiles are a perfect choice.

What color tile looks good with white cabinets?

White cabinets offer a clean, fresh, and bright foundation that allows you to play with different colors. That’s why, any tile color can look good with them. The perfect color depends on the overall look you’re trying to achieve in your kitchen. For a clean and modern look, large format tiles in subtle neutral shades will add a touch of subtle contrast and dimension without overwhelming the brightness of white cabinets. Warmer shades like beige, cream, or taupe are perfect to break the sterilized look of the white surfaces and add a touch of warmth. For a strong design statement, opt for darker shades like black, navy blue, emerald green, dark gray, or brown. Besides these classic options, you can use any color from blue to yellow, pink, purple, green, or even orange!

Best Backsplash for All-White Kitchen

There is no doubt that having an all-white kitchen is always a classic and clean look. All-white kitchens, where white cabinets are combined with white backsplash tiles and countertops, are perfect for creating bright and spacious spaces. And the combination of white cabinets and white backsplash will never let you down! Even though this one-tone color scheme is great for creating a timeless, versatile and stylish kitchen, it requires attention to detail. Because using stark white shades for all the surfaces might give a too-sterilized look. To create a warmer atmosphere, you can opt for creamy white shades or those with warm undertones.

Textured or patterned white backsplash tiles are also ideal options to enhance the visual interest of an all white kitchen. Besides the main features like cabinets, countertops and backsplash tiles, you can add a warm sense with other elements such as lighting fixtures, cabinet hardware, cutting boards, floating shelves or textured textiles.
