Farmhouse Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

Farmhouse kitchen backsplashes are an important design element in any kitchen and contribute to the over-overall appearance. A backsplash can take a kitchen to an extraordinary level by enhancing the design aesthetic and increasing the value of your kitchen. Backsplashes add visual appeal while also protecting the drywall, preventing down-wall drips and they are easy to keep clean.

A tile backsplash serves a utilitarian purpose by shielding walls from splatters, but it’s also a fashionable way to add eye-catching beauty to your kitchen or bathroom. The market’s plethora of tile styles, materials, patterns, and colors allow you to personalize your backsplash tile to your liking.

Farmhouse style blends the old with the new combining rustic charm and simplicity. Farmhouse backsplashes work perfectly with different wood textures, apron front sinks, and neutral color schemes.

Ranch Style House Home Tour

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

Atlanta Traditional Country Home

Today we begin a tour of a stunning Atlanta home where the pallet was inspired by the home owner’s (Jane Hight) vast collection of blue-and-white Imari porcelain inherited from her mother and grandmother. Having served as the accountant for interior designer Lauren DeLoach for several years, it was natural for Hight to enlist the designer’s help when decorating her home. When it came to a color palette, the pair looked no further than Hight’s beloved family porcelain. “While we knew we would use blue, finding the right shade took some study,” says DeLoach. “We didn’t want a too-saturated hue, but we didn’t want it too pale. We also needed another color to add punctuation marks here and there, so the salmon hue came from the Imari porcelain.”

Country Home Tour

The small and compact English-style country home is 1,400-square-feet and situated on a sweeping pasture across from the Inn at Brays Island in South Carolina. The owners hired Interior Designer, Beth Webb to create a pastoral blend of Anglo and Low Country traditions. “It’s interesting how a house this tiny can be so INCREDIBLY LIVABLE. Inside, all that extreme verticality means the rooms feel neither contained or compressed. Plus the house has a beautiful orientation on the property, so there’s a lovely dappling of light morning, afternoon, and evening. We took advantage of this as much as possible, especially in the galley kitchen, which we designed as kind of a non-kitchen kitchen, a space that looks more like a sun-splashed garden room with that huge window.”
