Countertops often dictate the backsplash color and style, says Kira Van Deusen, designer at Covenant Kitchens & Baths in Westbrook, Conn. Also consider fixtures like your lighting and hardware. Try mixing metallic tiles in different shades with various finishes, such as brushed stainless steel, oil-rubbed bronze or even an antique brass. By including small tiles of marble or granite, you can pull in the countertop color without being boring with a panel of granite that extends up from the countertop, says Barrie Spang, interior designer at Lee Meier Interiors in Westlake, Ohio. As for glass tiles, check out some of the newer tiles with a bit of crackle or frosted finish, Spang says.
Accessories and other design flourishes can build on a modern kitchen theme. Cabinet doors may be replaced with frosted glass or a sleek laminate or wood veneer to create a modern look. Mixers, blenders, coffee makers and other accessories are available in bold colors and unique designs that seem positively science fictional. Cookware, utensils and flatware are all available with a modern twist, both in terms of design aesthetic and bold, up-to-date colors.
The kitchen island in Victorian kitchen designs can also be made from a repurposed dresser or cabinet in the Victorian style, often featuring intricately carved cutouts, crown molding and other classic design flourishes like brass hardware in flowing, floral designs. Similarly, cabinets in Victorian kitchen design often boast an antique design, with crown molding, cutouts and elegant hardware all common choices.
