Multi kitchen backsplash – Metro tiles have a rectangular shape and their typical dimensions are 3 by 6 inches, although some owners opt for 4 by 12 inches. The size of the latter is used on a larger board. These tiles come in ceramics and glass; Glass has a brighter finish while the ceramic has a matte look. Metro tiles were not traditionally used in homes but in the metro and transit system in Manhattan. A modern take on tiles, however, uses 1-inch by 1-inch tiles that recall the original meter motif for a board, although custom tiles come in a variety of sizes. Create a contemporary pattern by placing a red, black and silver accent tile on a backsplash of tiles traditionally classified in clear glass. Create the reverse tile effect by adding ceramic tile alone in dark shades of smaller teal, purple and orange patterns to a board that is predominant in the shape of 1 inch by 1 inch.
Retro multi kitchen backsplash, filled with chrome and plastic charm, need a splash protector with ultimate retro flavor. Place a square of pink and orange metro tiles in the middle of a green ceramic tile in the smaller sized tile. Alternate color options include lime green and yellow metro tiles over a background of pink crystal tiles. Accented glass tiles pair beautifully well with a tuft that focuses on a romantic feminine space. Purple and silver metro tiles with a granite or marble embossed on them work on a background of glass mosaic tiles. Place alternating purple and silver tiles in a line in the middle of the dashboard or place single tiles three or four, in each color, along the back wall. Alternate color options include pink and gold metro tiles in the middle of a white tile background.
Give your multi kitchen backsplash a taste of exotic island living using accent glass tiles to break an orange and teal marble top. Bright colors like orange and blue-green emit Caribbean tones and flavor; Brown and orange paired together also achieve this stylish goal. Leave enough space in a brown ceramic tile backsplash tile in orange and gold placed in a diagonal pattern. This style pattern works well on a large board as you need the largest surface for placement of the tiles.
