Superb interior design is all about the details, and a tile backsplash is one detail that you can have a lot of fun with in your Honolulu home! As the name suggests, backsplashes protect your walls in the kitchen or bathroom from splashes. While generally a small area, backsplashes are an open canvas for your interior design goals. Below Floor Coverings International Oahu has a few beautiful tile backsplash designs for an eye-catching statement in any space.

Mosaic Tile

Mosaic tiles create a pop of color and pattern. For example, you can bring in the ocean with sea green and blue glass tile, add a border, or craft your very own unique pattern. Mosaic tiles add just the right amount of visual interest to make a perfect focal point.


For a trendy and fun pattern, consider laying your tile in a chevron pattern. The zig zag stripes are quite attractive and add texture to your tile backsplash. We love the light and airy look of white and grey hued tiles for interesting depth.

Black and white checkerboard is a classic tile combo that never goes out of style. It may seem like the design options are limited with this pattern, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. You can mix this classic design up and use a baby blue and white checkerboard. Or choose between tiny checkers squares vs. large ones. No matter what, there is no chess-like contemplation in choosing the perfect checkerboard backsplash – it is simply fun.


Subway Tile

Subway tile has become another longterm design trend, and for a good reason! Even though they are simple rectangles, the subway style adds a modern and sleek twist for a kitchen backdrop. White is a Honolulu favorite, but slick black can create an elegant look, or you can use colored accent tiles to provide some pops of color. Another fun idea is to use pastel subway tiles to create a more vintage look.
