Using three dimensional (3D) technology to design a kitchen might sound futuristic, but it’s an easy way to produce an attractive range of home interior designs for a wide range of projects — including creating beautiful backsplashes for the kitchen from many different materials.
Today’s 3D technology is advanced enough to be used to make a kitchen backsplash from substances including ceramic, porcelain, metal, and stones including travertine — a type of limestone — and marble. It’s a competitively priced approach to producing the tiles needed to achieve whatever the homeowner’s design goal might be, and a low-fuss method for such projects.
Marble is one of the classiest materials out there and produces a natural look of elegance no matter where it’s used. Just because the kitchen is sometimes used for quick snacks is no reason to avoid this material for a backsplash. Consider using a stacked stone of rectangular marble tiles of varying lengths and widths, stacking them on top of each other for a 3D look and feel. The white marble with its gray streaks throughout will pair effortlessly with lightly-colored kitchen furniture.
A potentially lower-cost stone option for a kitchen backsplash is to use naturally occurring travertine. It’s possible to make a kitchen look like a rustic country home by using beige travertine tiles with beveled edges, meaning the tiles have been produced with sloping edges. Using same-sized tiles creates an interesting image but one that fits well in just about any home.
For those homeowners who don’t want to use natural stone or metal, there’s always the option of ceramic or porcelain. These are two affordable choices that are easy to clean and maintain.
If it’s porcelain that’s under consideration, an interesting method is to use tiles produced to recreate the 3D look of real brick. The light gray and brown color scheme for these tiles pairs especially well with hardwood flooring and darker kitchen cabinets, such as those made from wood.
Ceramic is also a viable choice, and a simple and clean look can be achieved by using white ceramic tile in a 3D herringbone style, which are rectangular patterns arranged to look like the bones of a fish. Given that white is often a neutral color in home design projects, it can work in most homes as a kitchen backsplash, pairing with appliances that are either black, white, or other colors.
For a more unusual design, metal is a viable alternative to stone, ceramic or porcelain. Using a gray metal tile with contemporary 3D patterns will create something that not only looks out of this world but also feels it, and is a perfect complement to a modern kitchen and appliances.
Of course, there are many more options available for using 3D tiles to produce eye-catching kitchen backsplashes. Because the kitchen is one of the most frequently used rooms in a house, it’s important to get the design right as the backsplash will likely be around for years to come. Thankfully, 3D technology can help make sure that whatever the design dream might be, it can be fulfilled.
