Spice up your kitchen walls!

Paint is pretty and a perfect (and easy) way to transform any wall but check out these unique accent walls in the kitchen....

Tile has so many possibilities - flooring, counter tops and back splash so why not take it to the next level and create an accent wall in the kitchen with tile.  Tiles comes in so many different styles ranging from modern to traditional, a tile accent wall can add visual interest to any space.  Mosaics can add both pattern and colour, glass can add sparkle and shine and textured tiles can give a 3-D effect to your space.....

Nature lover?  Bring the outdoors in with natural tumbled stone like Sonoran stone (seen below).  It adds a lot of visual interest to the room with texture and warmth.  The tones in the stone really compliment the wood stain in the kitchen and the accents of black in the lighting and the seating give a bit more depth.  The contrast of the rustic elements and the streamlined furniture and cabinets. This stunning kitchen is warm and cozy and almost takes you away to an Italian villa

Classic and timeless and so luxurious....marble.  The marble backsplash in this kitchen has been carried right up to the ceiling and over to the window giving the entire space an elegant look and feel.  the soft grey veins in the marble have been accented with stainless steel elements like the over sized hood fan, stools and light fixtures plus the charcoal quartz counter top gives a bit of depth to the colour palette. The floor to ceiling marble gives this classic kitchen a slight modern (but timeless) edge.

 Want to take the industrial look to a new level?  How about covering your walls with corrugated metal?  Texture and shine plus it's easy to clean and maintain.  Paired with over sized pendant lighting and reclaimed wood gives this kitchen a warehouse look and feel.  This would really suit and open layout in a loft space.  This could also work nicely outside of the kitchen in a modern design home.

 Looking for some natural yet modern edge to your kitchen?  Stainless steel is great but how about wood panels, modern wood panels.  The natural grain add visual interest and wood adds a lot of warmth to any space. Paired with the white cabinetry and dining chairs and anchored with black counter and floating shelves this kitchen is sleek and chic, minimal with a touch of retro

 Here's a kitchen with lots of bold pop!  A Kelly green island with butcher block, over sized commercial grade stainless hood fan with a marble back splash and a floral wall paper accent gives this kitchen a ton of character.  A little eclectic but lots of fun!
