The strategic use of color can bring life to a any space. Grays and blues of various shades are perfect complements to white kitchens. This kitchen uses the popular herringbone pattern for the backsplash, fitting comfortably around the cabinetry. Not only is ceramic tile an excellent choice for the kitchen because of its water-resistance, but ceramic tile is also great for use around stovetops such as this. Ceramic tile won’t melt, burn, smoke, or give off toxic fumes when exposed to flame. Not many materials can protect your home while looking great!
