Subway Tile with Dark Grout

Subway tile backsplashes are classic and beautiful and also affordable. Spice up your space by using dark or colored grout for a bold look on this traditional accent. This all-white kitchen could be a dull space, but the floor-to-ceiling subway tile with dark grout gives it the push it needed to take it to the next level.

Herringbone-Pattern Tile

Another way to add a fresh touch to your space is to the lay the wall tile or backsplash in a unique pattern. Herringbone and basket-weave patterns are timeless choices, but the possibilities are unlimited.

Statement Lighting

Statement lighting is a must for creating a kitchen with character. There are endless styles available in a wide range of prices, so the world of lighting is your proverbial oyster. Barn-style lights, lanterns, and sputniks, like the one I used in my kitchen here, are all great options.

Wall-Mount iPad

Another great way to add cool functionality to your space is to install a wall-mount iPad like this Jones Design Company kitchen has. Having an iPad or similar technology is great for reading recipes, listening to music, or catching up on your favorite show while preparing meals.

Open Shelving and Creative Storage

Open shelving is a popular kitchen trend -- and with good reason. Open shelving offers functional storage but adds layer of detail to your space allowing you to display your favorite things. Think outside of the box when it comes to other kitchen storage, as well. Features such as rolling carts, industrial spice racks, and knife holders provide style and storage near the kitchen's prep, cook, and cleanup areas.
