Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Backsplash

With a new year, new trends are on the horizon. Some traditional styles still have continued to thrive, but new backsplash trends have emerged. Therefore, if you are looking to do a backsplash in your home, it is key to know the latest styles and trends. Today, we will explore some of the new trends on the market to help you decide which styles you may want in your own home. Let’s get started!

Subway Tiles

Subway tiles used to be so prevalent in every home a couple of years ago, and then they became outdated. It seems now that all the old subway tiles have been removed, the trend is back on the uprise. Homeowners and businesses are once again incorporating subway tile backsplashes in their design. The simplicity grid layout helps build a simple, clean-cut aesthetic.

Bold Patterns

Geometrical shapes and bold patterns are becoming very common, as well. You can see this with encaustic tiles and other bold-patterned tile systems. These geometrical patterns can become the focal point of any room. Just try finding a pattern in which you can complement other areas of your design.

Solid Wall

Solid wall backsplash is another largely trending aesthetic look. These backsplashes eliminate any grout line or separation and are installed as one large piece. This style can create a very sleek and cleaned line look in your home.


If you are looking to add some character to the room, consider marble. Marble has a ton of character throughout the intricate veining patterns in each piece. Each marble tile will offer its own aesthetic and unique look to the room. This style can quickly spruce up a dull area and make a stunning backsplash.

To the Ceiling

Backsplashes are also beginning to lose their limitations on height. Traditionally, backsplashes were just high enough for splashes or spills. However, we are now seeing homeowners backsplash the whole wall – all the way up to the ceiling. If you use this look, keep in mind the size of your tiles if you are looking to do this in hard-to-install areas.

Trends are significant to keep in touch within the interior design industry. Are you surprised by any of these backsplash trends?

Trend Spotting: Poufs

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

Have you noticed these round floor cushions on design blogs and in magazines? They’re popping up everywhere. Seen in living rooms, bedrooms, family rooms and even in outdoor living spaces, these cushions are called poufs.  The poufs can soften hard tile floors and can do the same in your home for hardwood floors, too.

The pouf is a versatile piece in that it can be used as an ottoman to put your feet up, extra seating, or a place to lounge.  Traditionally made of leather, the pouf comes in a rainbow of colors including metallics. The bright colors and simple patterns on the pouf mean they can work in a number of rooms and décor styles.  Poufs can be right at home in more traditional rooms and contemporary rooms. Their soft shape makes them great for children’s play areas and bedrooms.

Because of the popularity of the pouf, you’ll now find poufs made from different materials. You can find non-traditional poufs that are multicolored and made of patterned fabrics. Knitted and crocheted poufs add great texture to a room.  The knitted poufs have the look and softness of a beloved sweater—great for snuggly winter decorating.

Poufs can be easily moved and stored under tables or consoles, making them even more versatile.  Their portability means you can move them from room to room and even outdoors as you need them.
