Can a Back Splash be Too Busy?
Yes. Yes it can.
The defining characteristic of this featured kitchen is the back splash made from a multitude of multicolored one inch tiles. It draws your eye almost to the exclusion of the other excellent features of this kitchen.
With the exception of this back splash, the overall color scheme is good.
Beige floor tiles made from larger tiles set diagonally on the floor. Cherry cabinets with brass handles and door knows. Black countertops. Stainless steel appliances. A stainless steel undermount sink, and a brushed nickel faucet.
The white ceiling contains the recessed can light fixtures that provide ample ambient light and task lighting is provided by lights installed on the underside of the upper cabinets.
But there’s that back splash.
I know this was not done to save money, as installed 12×12 sheets of 1 inch tiles is finer work than installing 12×12 tiles, takes longer, and if you’re paying someone to do it for you, costs more.
I suppose in time I could get used to it. You know how things you see every day become somewhat invisible. You simply don’t notice them anymore because they’re always there. My relationship with such a back splash could take on such a dynamic, but my strong preference would be to replace it with a lighter more neutral color. A shade similar to the shade of the flooring would be just about perfect for me.
Having said all that, clearly someone loved (or loves) that back splash. My tastes are mine and others do disagree.
