My backsplash is easily my favorite part of my kitchen! We only just added it, and I was shocked at the difference it made in my kitchen and the rest of my home! Get inspired to take the plunge and make your home look a little cozier with a coastal backsplash kitchen.
Coastal Backsplash Kitchen: Subway Tile
In my opinion, nothing says coastal home quite like subway tiles do. There’s something about it that looks like they came straight from the beach! Install blue edging and even a few seashells with your tile to complete the look!
There’s something about mosaic tiles that just make me so happy. There’s something so beautiful about combining multiple shades of blue to come together in a gorgeous backsplash. But not only can you create a mosaic backsplash with different shades of tile, but you can also mix different textures as well.
Coastal Backsplash Kitchen: Colors
Aqua blues are the perfect hue for your home if you are looking to make a powerful statement. Cover your wall in hues of Aqua blue and add yellow accessories to your countertops to create a gorgeous contrast.
Looking for a bit of a classier color scheme? Instead of bright Aqua, cover your back splash in dark royal blue tiles. Though this shade is a little darker, you can brighten up your space by accessorizing with wooden accessories. Keep the wood weathered for a stunning shipwrecked vibe.
Coastal Backsplash Kitchen: Ideas
Make your home look like something straight off of the beach with this fun idea from Master Suite Ideas. You’ll need some wet plaster and some seashells, sea stars, and whatever else to create the imprints you desire. This could be a really clever idea for a bathroom backsplash! Pick up a bag of fake seashells from Etsy to pull this off.
Looking for more of a rustic look? Cover your backsplash in pieces of pallet board. These thick boards look like pieces of driftwood, so this idea is sure to give your home the coastal look of your dreams.
A great solution for a unique backsplash is to cover yours in tempered glass. You can create custom patterns for your tempered glass so you could definitely pick one reminiscent of the beach.
Coastal Backsplash Kitchen: Patterns
If you don’t want to incorporate tile when working on your new backsplash, you can create the same look with wallpaper, instead. Pick up some chevron wallpaper (for backsplashes, I like to choose a smaller pattern so it’s not as overpowering) and install it as your backsplash. Make sure you choose a variety that can handle the mess that comes with the kitchen.
Chevron isn’t the only wallpaper pattern you could do on your backsplash. The sky is truly the limit, go with flowers, spirals, or any other kind of pattern. No matter what you choose, your home will look amazing.
Cover your backsplash in pebble porcelain tile for a look similar to something straight off of the beach.
You can’t ever go wrong with a plain white backsplash! If you still wanted to include a blue shade in your decor somehow, try painting your cabinets! Idea from Decor Pad.
