The backsplash is one of the most important parts of a kitchen’s design. It pulls everything together and can make or break the entire flow. Choose the wrong color scheme or style and the whole kitchen can become disjointed. I love choosing backsplashes because there are so many amazing options out there, it’s so much fun looking for the perfect one for the space I’m working on at the time. Besides just color, there are myriad options available such as material, texture, pattern, size and more. I’ve put together 10 kitchen backsplash ideas to inspire you for your next kitchen renovation.
Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
1 One of the most timeless and popular looks for a kitchen backsplash is white subway tile. It’s classic, never goes out of style, and can be paired with any color. It also comes in just about any color from blue to orange and everything in between. If you want the white tiles but with a different flair, try choosing a grey grout.
2 If you’re looking for charm, exposed brick can always be counted on to do the job. While not the easiest material to clean, it does look really cool and brings a lot of character to a space.
3 Textured glass tiles like the ones below look great in a contemporary coastal kitchen. They mimic the water and have clean lines that bring both serenity and simplicity.
4 This tile in a Moroccan pattern adds a lot of flair to this kitchen while still maintaining an understated elegance.
5 Metallic tiles reflect light in this elegant industrial style kitchen, adding a bit of glam and a lot of style.
6 Staggered tile looks really cool as a backsplash, capturing a very natural feel while still bringing that high-gloss contemporary look.
7 We see the chevron pattern everywhere ─ but how about as a backsplash? It’s a very neat and creative use for a timeless pattern.
8 Bead board is great affordable option for a backsplash. It has a classic cottage look and is very durable, not to mention easy to paint if you ever want to give your kitchen a new look.
9 Stone, especially when the tiles are little uneven as shown in this beautiful kitchen, offer a wonderful rustic charm through their natural color and texture.
