The kitchen island is a must‐have in most homes. Even though being able to incorporate it into the décor means that you need to have a kitchen that’s large enough to accommodate it without problems, this restriction doesn’t go as far as that. The great thing about kitchens islands is that they’re usually multifunctional. A kitchen island can be a great prep area, especially if it has a built‐in sink. But the versatility doesn’t stop here. You can also use the kitchen island as a bar or breakfast area.
We have taken and used chalkboard paint ideas here before and if I remember correctly, we mentioned this particular idea as well. The reason chalkboard paint can be a great backsplash idea is because of the ever changing possibilities. You can write a new funny message everyday, list a favorite recipe, draw funny faces, or cover the area with an artful design to name a few. The particular pattern seen in this image shows alternating shapes and tones of light and dark achieved through the use of a stick of chalk.
A more dramatic look for a kitchen backsplash might be the next idea we present here. The amount of surface texture created with this project is amazing. The eye‐catching wall of stacked pebbles fits wonderfully in the natural lakeside style of the owner’s kitchen. If you want to create a backsplash like this and ensure your efforts result in the same finished look, you need to use only small pebbles which are roughly all an identical size. To keep the very natural appearance of the wall and avoid a heavy set in look, do not use visible grout around each stone, just enough on the hidden end to create floating stacks of pebbles. Keep it real, keep it natural.
This kitchen is not particularly large but the fact that it’s almost entirely white helps create the impression of a larger space. The wooden floors bring a refreshing contrast while the small and compact kitchen island sits in the center and complements the entire décor.
Kitchenettes, being so small, encourage you to make the most of the space so they’re usually very practical and functional. And it’s because they occupy so little space that can be easily added to a pool house, basement, etc.
