Kitchen Tile Backsplashes

Customer Installation Photos

I do not want art for a few, any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few. ~William Morris

William Morris Tulip and Trellis Backsplash

Providence, Rhode Island

William Morris Tulip and Trellis Backsplash

This is a modern but warm kitchen in Providence Rhode Island. The backsplash is large 36 inches x 36 inches, not counting grout lines. There is ample seating on the other side of the cooktop island. You can see more of the Tulip and Trellis installation photos.

This tile, as shown, was designed by William Morris, but was executed by William De Morgan at Morris and Co. De Morgan later did his own version!

You can compare both versions, as well as see available tile sizes and options William Morris Tulip and Trellis

William Morris 'The Forest' Backsplash

Marion, North Carolina

William Morris 'The Forest' Backsplash

The keeper of this kitchen did this entire project herself, with no previous experience! I'm very impressed with how it turned out.

This is the 34 inch backsplash. See also Kitchen Tile Borders for an adaptation of using 'The Forest' border tiles as a backsplash in a small kitchen.

William Morris Heavenly Blues Acanthus Kitchen

La Grange, Illinois

William Morris Acanthus kitchen, Heavenly Blues

These backsplashes are part of a Victorian home renovation in a busy home with several small children. I especially like the way the blues in the backsplash pull the blues in from the adjoining dining room. The background, originally on indigo, is on a black background.

De Morgan Blue and White Kitchen Backsplash

Charleston, South Carolina

William De Morgan Birds and Beasts Kitchen Backsplashes

William De Morgan, Father of Arts & Crafts ceramics, made a series of fantastic birds and beasts, some, like the owl, dodo, and kingfisher, taken from nature but others, such as the the jabberwocky, griffin, and hippogryph come from myth and imagination.

Similar backsplashes were placed over the cooktop and the sink, with border tiles along the counter edges.

Arts & Crafts Kitchen: De Morgan Carnations

Brooklyn, New York

William De Morgan Arts & Crafts kitchen in Brooklyn, NY, featuring blue De Morgan carnations on eight-inch tiles.

William De Morgan carnations are classic. And happy. These De Morgan carnations are installed in a Bronx, New York, kitchen. The homeowner wanted larger tiles but was limited by height, so we made an eight-inch tile based on De Morgan's design for smaller tiles. The blue color pops more than it shows in this interior lighting. You can see a daylight photo of one of these tiles, and the other colorways available.William De Morgan Carnation tiles

William De Morgan Membland Small Backsplash

Tulalip, Washington

William De Morgan small Membland tile backsplash

I had originally imagined the two-row Membland border as an undercabinet backsplash, but there is something to be said for thinking outside the box! Although only 18 inches wide, this six-tile border works perfectly as a backsplash in this cozy cooktop alcove.
