A Little Bit of Kitchen Inspiration

Just a touch of color in the right place goes a long way when redecorating your kitchen. Re-painted cabinets, new hardware, and updated countertops all go a long way when a new look is in order, but one unique place that often goes overlooked is the backsplash. Many backsplashes are redone with plain tiling that works well enough, but doesn’t do anything to add personality to your kitchen. What a wasted opportunity! You shouldn’t have to sacrifice beauty for practicality, and with a Riad concrete tile backsplash, you won’t have to!

Riad offers a multitude of unique tiles in styles ranging from our own contemporary designs to classically-inspired patterns, all of which can be used to create your ideal kitchen backsplash. Our broad range of tiles encourages you to exercise your creativity when selecting a tile, and we even offer samples so you can see our tiles in person before you come to any final decisions.

Some of Our Favorite Concrete Tile Backsplash Examples

At Riad, we consider ourselves lucky to have such a creative customer base. We get to see their creativity via social media on a daily basis, experiencing new ideas and applications we may have never even considered!

A concrete tile backsplash can be used to great effect as both an accent piece and a centerpiece. It just depends on the kitchen and the preferences of the person placing the tile. In both scenarios, cement tile creates a stunning visual that’s sure to impress anyone who sees it.

This subdued use of Erizo Blue beautifully accentuates and is accentuated by the white countertops while protecting the entire wall against stains.

This use of our Knox Grey hexagonal tile is a bold use for a bold space. Hexagonal tiles are particularly suited to creative uses, because they create different patterns depending on how they are arranged.

Why a Backsplash?

Especially in a newly renovated space, keeping your kitchen clean is pretty important. If you don’t maintain your kitchen, all the oil, sauce, and water splatters can build up and leave your once-welcoming kitchen a dingy mess. Backsplashes are your first line-of-defense against the messes that can ruin your kitchen’s gorgeous appearance. Cement tile is a perfect backsplash material for several reasons:

  1. It’s a durable material with a rich coloration that doesn’t fade with time.
  2. It’s naturally stain-resistant and easy to clean.
  3. As it ages, cement tile actually grows more harder and more durable, so it won’t crumble over time.

So why wait? Get started building the kitchen of your dreams! Please Contact Us with any questions you might have about our tile, or feel free to order a sample today!
