Kitchen Tile Backsplash Designs
for Cabins and Cottages!

The kitchen tile backsplash designs featured here are ideal for cabins and cottages of all types -- as well as year round dwellings.  Whether used in a cozy lakeside cabin, country farmhouse cottage, or majestic mountain retreat, this durable surface covering complements a wide range of looks.

Tile backsplashes work equally well in kitchens with simple open shelving and those with glass-fronted cabinetry.  In kitchens with vintage appliances and those with the latest gourmet models.  The versatility and timelessness of tile is undeniable.

Savvy Subways

Since its debut in 1904, subway tile has become a mainstay in American kitchens and baths -- a tradition that continues to this day.  Durable and easy to clean, subway tile is also extremely versatile.  Due to its simplicity and clean lines, it can be used in virtually any setting . . . . . from rustic to refined . . . traditional to contemporary.

Royal blue subway tiles create a stunning backdrop for white cabinetry and millwork in a kitchen makeover (below) by Howells Architecture + Design.    The kitchen tile backsplash is laid in a running bond pattern.
