Striking Tile Makes a Statement

Incorporating tile into your remodeled space.

"Transform your space with the magic of backsplash tile."


Selecting the perfect backsplash tile for your remodeled space, especially for a showpiece butler's pantry, is a significant decision. A backsplash is an essential element in the hardest working rooms in the house like the kitchen, bathroom, mudroom and laundry areas, and pantries.  

Why should you incorporate tile into your remodeling project? Tile can completely transform your space by:  

  1. Adding visual interest: Think of the backsplash like a canvas for design, it adds pops of color, texture, or patterns to brighten a space, creating a more welcoming atmosphere.  

  2. Providing wall protection: Beyond its aesthetics, tile serves a practical purpose by safeguarding walls from splashes and stains, particularly crucial in kitchens and bathrooms. The areas in your home with durable tile make it easier to clean and maintain.  

  3. Creating a focal point: Tile can be the focus of any room, bringing balance and harmony to the overall space. It also helps tie together unique design elements such as countertops and cabinets.  

When choosing tile, it should not only look visually pleasing, but also be functional. With a wide range of options available, it is essential to do research and seek collaboration with a design team to find a backsplash tile that aligns with your unique design aesthetic and fulfills your needs.  

One of our most recent favorites is Rêve d'Orient Arctic White tile with brass finish.    

Rêve d'Orient is a show-stopping tile that is a versatile and classic choice for any room in your home! The subway-tile shape gives it a classic look, while the warm metallic finish makes it feel more modern. The neutral tones and intricate hints of gold give a glamorous appeal in an approachable way - perfect to make a statement in a butler's pantry. This style has an elegant appearance that can be applied to both floors and walls, providing you with additional creative options when renovating your home.  

Here are some valuable tips from our VUJOVICH design team when selecting tile during our initial design phase:  

  • Consider durability, location, and function: Evaluate the tile's durability to ensure it can withstand the demands of the intended location. Different rooms have different requirements, such as the need for a more durable, maintenance-friendly porcelain tile in a mudroom that can effectively hide dirt vs. a powder room occasionally used by guests. 
  • Assess maintenance and cleaning: If the ease of cleaning is a characteristic you value, choose a tile that is easy to clean and maintain which contributes to its long-term usability and appearance.  
  • Determine the tile's role in the room: Decide if the tile will serve as an accent, backdrop, or the focal point because this will influence the tile selection and design choices.  
  • Consider the age and history of the home: If desired, incorporate tile designs that align with the home's historical context or era to maintain authenticity.  

A butler's pantry adds a touch of luxury to any home. It has a special purpose and stands out from other rooms. When paired with eye-catching tile, it can beautifully reflect the candlelight when you are entertaining guests. With a plethora of materials, colors, and patterns available, the right tile, carefully selected with one of our designers, can transform your practical butler's pantry into an upscale and distinguished space!
