How Very Pinteresting!: 10 Kitchens to Inspire and How to Recreate Them

Oh Pinterest, there is so much inspiration to be found, and so many hours to be lost drooling over the gorgeous interiors we wish were ours.  This week we put together a collection of our absolute favorite pin-worthy kitchens–you know, the kind of kitchens that have you ready to undergo a full on remodel, and ways to re-create them with our tile, so get ready to be Pinspired!

Handpainted designs look beautiful in almost any interior.   We love the graphic appeal of this black and white patterned tile against the rich wood cabinetry and contemporary stainless steel appliances.  To recreate this graphic and bold look try pairing a similar aesthetic with our new Handpainted design Jardin Fretwork.

This kitchen follows suit with a graphic patterned backsplash, while brass accents add a hint of glamour and understated sophistication to the space.

This kitchen takes a cue from quilted patchwork, combining a variety of blues, whites, and greens in varying textures and patterns.  To create a similar look have fun experimenting with a range of hues in the same color family such as our aqua color group below.  Mix things up with different textures, even different sizes to create a unique patchwork look sure to inspire.

Our Tile colors, Turquoise, Lagoon and Azurine

This light and bright kitchen goes floor to ceiling with our favorite classic,  white subway tile.  This look can be recreated with any of our white Tile colors (we created a guide for choosing the perfect white) in a standard 3x6 size.  Throw in a fireplace, herringbone floors and a cute dog and you have our dream kitchen.

We love an interior that makes you feel like your are outdoors.  This kitchen successfully brings the outdoors in by substituting a traditional kitchen backsplash with a window, letting the outside greenery be the center of attention.  No greenery in sight?  Add that organic appeal with an earth green tile backsplash instead.  We love this one.

There is only one way to describe this kitchen, industrial chic.  Exposed brick, wood paneling, a cement floor and white accents all come together to create this loft-inspired look which can be achieved with our glazed thin Brick in Raw Sugar.  The gritty texture of the glaze mimics the appearance and feel of exposed brick, recreating that coveted industrial aesthetic.

This kitchen mixes soft and hard lines by pairing white cabinetry and a soft blue glass backsplash with industrial light fixtures, exposed brick and rich wood accents.  We love the contrast between styles and materials, and think our Glass color Forget Me Not would add even more unique texture to the design.

For all you apartment dwellers, this kitchen is a small-space lover's dream. Compact countertops with a subtle geometric backsplash creates a big wow factor in this small space.  For a similar look try one of our new Handpainted patterns with a simple design and colorway such as our contemporary patterns, Diamond Contour and Iscocoles.

Who said penny rounds are only meant for bathrooms?  No one!  We love how this kitchen created a mosaic kitchen backsplash with varying shades of gray, creating a unique sense of texture.  Paired with warm wood and white cabinetry, this contemporary kitchen leaves us swooning.  To recreate this look play around with our Crush-It glass mosaic blend tool.  Try out different colors, finishes and sizes to see what works best for you.

A colorful Handpainted backsplash will always win our hearts.  This kitchen backsplash uses a four tile patterned tile to create a vibrant pop of color in their sleek contemporary space.  We'd love to see this look re-created with our new Handpainted design, Persian Star.
