A monochromatic look is classic - It's also a fool proof way to design your kitchen, bathroom, etc yourself without worrying that the colors won't work together.
Sticking with the same color palate ensures that everything will flow well together - From your floor, to your counters, to your backsplash.
Here we've put Tundra Gray with both a stainless steel tile (same color family) and a mixed glass tile (with both light and dark shades of gray)
With Summer just around the corner and the weather (hopefully) getting warmer - I can't help but think of all of my favorite warm weather activities - Bike riding, tennis and most importantly hanging out by the pool or at the beach!
Incorporating blue tones into your kitchen or bathroom can help to give your home a beachy vibe. The subtle color of a sky blue is a great way to get a pop of color without committing to a bold or overly bright trend. Blue accents are a classic look - Sure to stand the test of time. The soft blue tones aren't overpowering so it won't be something you grow tired of looking at every day.
These four examples of glass and marble remind me of blue skies and clear water - And that, is definitely something I enjoy seeing everyday!
Turkish Roman Travertine is a beautiful stone with long, linear movements - Here we've mixed it with a Glass and Stone Mosaic to show how you can personalize this material by adding a creative mosaic
Even a creative person can run into a mental roadblock every now and then - So what do you do when you are working through a design project (kitchen, bath, backsplash, etc) and you suddenly run out of ideas? The answer: Get inspired.
One of the ways I get inspired is by looking at other peoples inspirations - and in this day and age we have a lightning speed way to do that, the internet. I simply Google whatever it is that I'm having trouble coming up with ideas for and browse through images until something strikes me! It works like a charm.
So whether you are beginning a project or in the thick of it, don't forget that the resources to get inspired are all around you! So get out there and get inspired :)
When choosing your cabinet, countertop and backsplash materials - sticking with similar undertones works beautifully.
This example of a cool toned green cabinet, cool toned Virginia Mist granite and cool toned Statuary White marble blend together in a natural and unique way:
Within the past year, Damar had display tables made so that we could more easily showcase our materials - They have been incredibly beneficial to us. The #1 thing that they do is help the customer picture what the end product of a tile and backsplash combo will look like. Visualization is everything in this industry.
We've just changed out the display tables to showcase some of our new porcelains:

Some may think that when dealing with a 'busy' patterned stone, it's best to go for a subdued look on the floors and backsplash - This is not always true. Mixing patterns can be tricky but it is definitely possible. The result of a great mix of patterns is a unique, custom look that it is inherently you.
A good rule of thumb is to stay in the same color family - As shown in the example below:
