Design Trends: How to Combine Tile Walls and Wallpaper
One sure way to bring a space to life in your home is to pair pretty wallpaper with ceramic tile. No longer considered an outdated relic of another era, wallpaper adds dimension, pattern, and vitality in a way that paint just can't. Kitchens, bathrooms, foyer's, laundry rooms, even mud rooms are all ideal spaces to spruce up with a little paper and tile.
A creative way to design a little wallpaper into the kitchen is with an open shelf above the tile splash line. Paper was applied above the open shelf only. It's a great use of wallcovering in the kitchen that still allows for easy cleaning.

Tile the areas in your kitchen that do most of the work, require 'scrub-ability'. Then make a pretty statement with a little pattern behind the open, or glassed in, shelving.

A bold color or pattern choice will make the space seem more intentional, loved instead of ordinary. Achieve this look with a bold wallpaper choice, then why not mix it up with a hexagon or penny rounds on the floor? No matter which look you choose, the space will really shine.
