Each year, the seasons come and go – spring, summer, fall, and winter – and each year kitchens are remodeled, often with no thought about the season in which they are remodeled. However, we have decided to change that up a bit, and get you thinking about kitchen backsplash ideas for every season. Now, we are not saying that you need to take a sledge hammer to your backsplash each time the seasons change. However, we do want to get you thinking about your favorite season of the year, and how you can bring that into your kitchen design, particularly the backsplash.
Spring Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
If your favorite season is spring, you probably enjoy the bright and pastel colors that pop up as the weather begins to warm up. Much of the spring colors come from brightly colored flowers that begin to bloom. When it comes to a spring-inspired kitchen backsplash, you need to think about these bright colors – reds, yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, greens, and blues. You can also use these same hues in pastel versions. For instance, there are many kitchen backsplashes created using pastel colors of oranges, blues, yellows, and greens. If you opt for bright colors, we recommend you keep a more neutral color palette, including light brown granite countertops. When it comes to pastel colors, you could select dark cabinetry and dark colored granite countertops to offset the lightness.
Summer Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
Summer is full of bright colors, and you have a variety of options to choose from. You could opt for bright yellows and blues, imitating the summer sky that is warm and inviting, or you can aim for a beach-inspired kitchen backsplash. You can use light gray and light blue rectangular tiles with a few star fish tiles here and there to really show off your love of the beach. You could also use bright shades of different blues, such as teal, aqua, light blue, bright blue, and gray glass tiles to create the feeling of the ocean. If you are a lover of bright colors and have a creative eye, you could create an ocean scene with different colors of mosaic tiles.
Fall Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
Perhaps one of the most popular seasons to inspire a kitchen backsplash is the fall. This is because fall is filled with natural colors, such as browns and grays. Furthermore, these neutral colors look amazing in a kitchen when paired with dark hues of reds, oranges, and yellows, which are three of the most prominent fall colors, thanks to the changing leaves. You can create a unique tiled backsplash using the dark shades of reds, yellow, and oranges, and finish the kitchen with dark cabinetry and dark brown granite countertops for an amazing fall-inspired kitchen design. When it comes to backsplash material, you have several different options, especially for fall. You could use a copper tile, which would provide you with that orange-red color. However, if you want a more traditional material, you can use glass tiles, mosaic tiles, or even ceramic tiles. Choose something that provides you with the texture and color you desire.
Winter Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
Winter is all about white – snow and ice. Fortunately, this color looks amazing in a kitchen, and can create an elegant kitchen backsplash. If you have every looked closely at a snowflake, you know how unique it can be. You can use white glass or mosaic tiles to create an intricate, whimsical, and elegant pattern for your tiled backsplash. Each time you step into your kitchen, you will feel the magic of winter if you opt for this type of backsplash. Other colors that can be included in a winter inspired kitchen backsplash includes blues and grays. We recommend bright blues and light grays to keep that feeling of a snowy winter day. Any of these designs pair nicely with granite countertops, particularly those that are gray in color.
There are a variety of different ways that you can bring your favorite season into your home. A season-inspired kitchen backsplash is just one of the many ways. Once you have a backsplash design and color chosen, you can design the rest of your kitchen around it, ensuring that your entire kitchen gives you the feeling of your favorite seasons all year long. Take the time to play with different color schemes that you see within your favorite season, as well as different materials and textures. Not all colors will look the same in one material as they do in another.
Whether you are a lover of warm fall colors, or prefer the brighter colors of spring and summer, you can create a kitchen backsplash to reflect your personal preferences. Consider these color options provided for you, or create your own season-inspired kitchen backsplash.
