For that edgy contemporary touch pair your glossy tiles with glossy black cabinets. There’s a beautiful contrast that happens when you display dark black tiles and pair them with a glossy finish. The glossy finish will illuminate the room while bringing a unique display of balck. 

When you think of your kitchen the last word that might come to mind is “sexy,” however, in this case, “sexy” is the only way to describe such a beautiful pairing. Display a backsplash of full black tiles and pair them with high-gloss cabinetry for that dark contemporary feel that brings elegance and edge to your home.


Add additional light sources to further enhance the metal undertone your metallic backsplash has to offer. The darker bits will from the rest of your decor provide a seamless contrast between the two.

For a grandiose aesthetic pair use a blend of dark hues, and pair it with a metallic glossy tile backsplash. The metallic touch paired with the dark hues will bring a beautiful pairing in the most unique way.

Oak comes in a multitude of colors, from the darkest hue to the lightest. It appears exceptionally well when it is paired with a glossy backsplash. Having that glossy backsplash brings the space back to life in a minimalist yet contemporary type of way.

Opt for a simple tile display for that minimalist approach that is so well-known as loved. Therefore, consider having oak as part of your cabinetry. The oak will further enhance the minimalist approach while allowing the space to come back to life.

Gray and Blue

If you can’t decide, whether to use blue as your main hue or gray, consider blending the two together in a unique pattern as part of your tile backsplash. Doing so will blend with hues together while allowing them to make a statement on their own.

Gray and blue paired together has always been a classic form of making a statement, update the two by having different blends of gray and blue throughout the room. Consider having a classic appeal yet with a touch of daring color.

Mixed Marbles

Marble is one of those classic signature materials for the kitchen. Most kitchens have it displayed as part of their kitchen island or as part of their countertops. However, if you want to take it a step further add a marble, tile backsplash and pair it with other marbles as well.

Nothing screams “kitchen décor” quite like marble. It’s a signature touch for most kitchens, take it a step further by having your tiled backsplash match your marble pattern. Doing so will bring a second layer of beauty while enhancing the classic, feel of the room.

Bring on the Blue

Whether you use a light blue backsplash or a navy one, you want to use a color that will be an asset to the room. You might even want to pair your backsplash with other blue bits in either the same color or a similar shade of blue for an easy contrast.

As previously mentioned, blue is one of those signature hues so much so that when you want to make a statement in the kitchen, it’s the perfect color to use. Add a blue backsplash in a neutral room to bring a brightening effect that makes sense.

Black and White

Black and white tiles are quite elegant on their own; however, when they are placed in a room that offers an edgy appeal they become that much grander. We love the idea of having small tiles instead of large ones in order to create dimension and beauty without having to add color.

Luxury is defined by how a room makes you feel. Keeping that in mind, we love the appeal of a glossy black and white kitchen, its modern, its daring and it feels luxurious, add in unique tiles that bring the room back to life in an elegant manner.

Boho Chic

Pale gray is such an underrated color, it works beautifully when paired with other hues while making a bold impact on its own. Therefore, pairing them with boho-chic elements such as wood or pictures that have that boho aesthetics to it will make the room feel grander and more put together.

Bohemian styling took a backseat as of recently, but its back with a twist of revenge- pale gray tiles. They might seem like a simple touch, yet they make a huge impact when they’re paired with other bohemian bits. Add pale gray tiles to a room that’s a little more laidback and casual.

Mosaic Beau

The beauty of a mosaic tile display is that it appears different from all angles that it is seen from. This is mainly due to mosaic tiling having a shifting ability depending on how it is laid out in the kitchen. Use different colors for a unique shift or use the same color with different undertones for a slight variation between the hues.

Nothing screams modern fun, trendy, and appealing quite like a mosaic backsplash. Mosaic backsplashes are great because they add pattern, texture, and color exactly where you need it. You could have an entire backsplash with a mosaic display, or you can choose to blend your mosaic display with other tiles for a beautiful display.

Pattern Display

If you’re not a fan of having tiles as your main backsplash consider having one stand out piece in the room. You might add it to half of your kitchen display or you might consider having it only at the center of your kitchen for an eye-catching effect.

We love a tiles pattern, not only do you have the ability to create a colorful, glossy display, but you can also have a neutral backsplash with a unique pattern. The options are endless when you are working with tiles that come together to bring a brightening effect in your kitchen.

Uniquely Done

Having a unique display is always an excellent idea for your kitchen, it adds an additional layer of character while bringing a focal point as well. Consider adding patterned tiles for a beautiful contrast that enhances the neutrals that you already have.

Instead of having a traditional display of tiles, consider having a unique one. The idea is to have a patterned display that makes the tiles feel even grander then what they are. You might want to consider having smaller tiles they tend to make the biggest impact.
