Slate Backsplash Ideas

Updated:2013-11-14 16:17:38

A slate kitchen backsplash is installed above a kitchen countertop to prevent splashing or spilling of substances onto the walls. One of the major benefits to having a slate backsplash is that slate is heat resistant and fireproof. Similar in durability to both granite and marble, slate comes in a variety of earth tones, including black, gray, brown, beige, blue, green, red and purple. As no two rocks are identical, you can count on your slate backsplash design being original no matter how you arrange it.

                                                        

Mountain Terrain

In a kitchen with rustic decor, select rugged slate tiles for your backsplash, creating the look of mountain terrain. Each piece of slate should be large and textured like a rock. The natural substance creates the feeling of being outdoors while in your kitchen. To maximize the effect, choose dark grays, browns and black-colored slate. This backsplash complements a kitchen with black countertops and appliances.
Pastel Accents
It is possible to choose slate tile pieces that are nearly identical in color to create a monochromatic backsplash. Add accent tiles in a pastel color to give your monochromatic backsplash a boost. Every three or four squares, add a soft-colored piece of tile. This design option is especially helpful when you want to match a lighter floor with dark cabinets.
Sleek Mosaic
When slate has been filed down, it shines. In a kitchen with contemporary decor, add slate that has been filed down to create a smooth surface. Select a number of sizes and colors to create the appearance of a mosaic. Add the large squares around the border of the design in horizontal rows. The smaller pieces of multicolored slate should be clustered in the interior of the backsplash design.
