Project Pick: Sculptural Relief Tile Medallion for Kitchen Backsplash

Sculptural Relief Diamond Medallion Tile for Kitchen Backsplash
Diamond Medallion Relief Tile for Kitchen Backsplash

Last week a customer who recently completed a kitchen remodel sent us some photos. Her kitchen is amazing! She shows how just a few of Avente's Sculptural Relief Tiles create an eye-catching kitchen backsplash.

The Diamond Medallion Relief Tile is used as accents spaced along the backsplash. Appalachian Spring Glaze was used for this project. This large tile (10.5 x 7) is shown below.

When it comes to decorative tiles, one of my mantras (and blog posts) is that with Deco Tiles: A Dab Will Often Do! A few weeks ago Interior Designer, Lisa M. Smith of Interior Design Factory, showed us how to Get the Most from Decorative Tile. And, now our customer in Wyoming really brings this point home.

This beautiful line of relief tiles is hand crafted in the United States. There are nearly a hundred different glazes available. So you can make these relief tiles work with any color scheme. Here's a few of our favorite Sculptural Relief Tiles and glazes:

Prism - Copper Patina Prism - Red Delicious Rosetta - Metallic Gold Mazzy - Sequoia

Tile Tip: Create a picture frame for your kitchen backsplash.

This traditional feature provides interest and works well above your range or cooktop. You can create a square or rectangular tile design bordered by molding very similiar to a picture frame. You should choose a style that relates to the rest of your kitchen in a similiar color scheme. You can do this using a mural, assorted field tile or and an accent tile that you really love. Here's a few of our favorites:
