Other Ways to Add Color to Your Kitchen
The trend to replace wall-hung cupboards with open shelving or countertop plate racks leaves wall space available as a place to hang artwork or display it on shelves for a curated look.
In some cases, though, backsplashes with elaborate or bold, large scale designs supply the artwork. Backsplashes of handmade neutral or colored cement or terracotta tiles also add texture.
Brick backsplashes add both texture and pattern. The bricks can be placed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally to create different geometric shapes, such as diamond or hexagons. If the idea of red bricks feels too dark to you, you can whitewash the bricks to lighten the red color.
