Kitchen Blacksplash Ideas That Won't Go Out of Style

Choosing that little bit of extra material that runs along the back of the counter causes many homeowners more stress than choosing the entire appliance suite. The thought of making the wrong decision can cause total indecision. For resale, a trendy backsplash can be financially detrimental. You can avoid this paroxysm of fear by choosing a backsplash that has been proven, through the years, never to go out of style.

Tiles that are low-contrast to the counter surface will not draw attention to the backsplash and leave the focus of the room on the important elements -- such as the picture window, the island or the brickwork behind the stove, for example. The eye goes to the area of greatest contrast first. If you install a row of contrasting tiles in the backsplash, or have a highly contrasting backsplash, that is the area that will draw the eye first and that area becomes the focal point. While this may be what you intend, consider that the contrast sets your color scheme and design style for the kitchen for as long as the tile is in place.

The classic backsplash of all classic backsplashes is subway tile -- preferably white, but in a pinch matched to the wall color. Have the tiles set horizontally in a staggered design and refrain from contrasting grout. This backsplash, if done in white tiles, will coordinate with any design style or color of any future renovations.

Advancements in paint and finishes create backsplashes that are durable and serviceable, replacing the need for an additional material in the decor mix. Almost any surface can be painted if it is properly primed and treated, even wood paneling, such as beadboard or wainscoting, or drywall.

Large, solid-colored glass tiles may not fade from style grace as quickly as patterned or trendy stacked glass tile, for example. If the product is brand new to the market and is unlike anything you have ever seen before, the chances of it being a trendy item are increased, and trendy items go out of style quickly. In the early and mid-1990s wallpaper borders were de rigueur for every room in the house. They were new at the time and set the tone of the room for as long as they were in place. They are rarely seen now; they were too trendy to become a lasting style. If you can, wait a season and see if the trend is fading before choosing the first release of a product. Classics in home decor seem to follow the way of trends in fashion: the pieces that last season after season are well made, of superior materials, of classic colors and blend with or cross to other design styles easily.

Elon Musk Reveals Solar Roof Made of Glass Tiles in L.a.
Elon Musk showcased his ambitions to make Tesla Motors Inc. a clean-energy behemoth Friday, unveiling a new solar-roof product at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, California. As the sun set, Musk told hundreds of guests gathered in an outside courtyard on the Desperate Housewives set that Tesla and SolarCity Corp., the company that he chairs and which he aims to acquire, will make solar roofs that look better than normal roofs. He then showcased several houses with solar tiles gracefully embedded. Because the tiles are fully integrated into the roofs, many guests in attendance could not tell that they were solar. How do we have a solar roof that is better than a normal roof, looks better, last longer, said Musk. You want to pull your neighbors over and say Check out this sweet roof. Musks presentation was short on details about the proven efficiency of the solar cells, the roofs warranty, cost or when it will be available to customers. The solar roof will be offered in four styles: Textured Glass Tile, Slate Glass Tile, Tuscan Glass Tile, and Smooth Glass Tile -- due to a variety of architectural choices. SolarCitys website says production will begin in mid-2017 and that the tempered glass is as "tough as steel." "The solar roof consists of uniquely designed glass tiles that complement the aesthetics of any home, embedded with the highest efficiency photovoltaic cells," said Tesla in a statement. "Customers can choose which sections of their roof will contain the hidden solar technology while still having the entire roof look the same." Paula Mints, chief market research analyst at SPV Market Research, questions the economics of the new offering, which can be combined with a home battery. Tesla announced a solar tile -- not new -- with battery that is priced below cost, said Mints in an e-mail. Basically Tesla announced another way to lose money. The larger idea is that homeowners will generate electricity for their home with solar power, then store that electricity in a home battery known as a Powerwall. You can fill up your battery during the day, then discharge it at night when the sun sets. The latest product iteration, known as Powerwall 2, weighs 269 pounds and is designed to be floor- or wall-mounted inside or outside. Musk and Tesla Chief Technology Officer JB Straubel have long envisioned a clean-energy future of electric cars powered by an increasingly solar grid, with Teslas batteries optimizing both. The company also offers much larger Powerpack systems to commercial and utility customers and has deployed almost 300 megawatt hours in 18 countries to date, according to a blog post Thursday. Battery-based energy storage has the potential to revolutionize electricity for the worlds poorest citizens in the way mobile technology disrupted the telecommunications industry. Coupled with solar panels or wind turbines, powerful lithium-ion batteries can store energy and provide electricity for the roughly 1.3 billion people worldwide who dont have access to electricity and face whats called energy poverty. Fridays event is part of an effort to make the case for the SolarCity acquisition to investors. More details, including financial information, will be revealed Nov. 1, when Tesla has said it plans to create a clear picture of how a combined Tesla and SolarCity will make solar and storage as compelling as electric vehicles. The proposed merger has been controversial because Musk is the chairman and largest financier of SolarCity, and the boards of both companies are deeply intertwined. Shareholders are to vote on the proposed merger Nov. 17.
