A kitchen backsplash is what pulls your kitchen together. Because it doesn’t go on until the very end, this gives you time to choose just the right one. We know that with all the options of kitchen backsplashes to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming. So we’ve put together a collection of our favorite styles to help narrow down your decision.
Popular Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
Tumbled tile is a backsplash in which the tiles are worn down with sand paper to create a softened, less uniform appearance. The most popular materials used to achieve this are travertine and marble.
Not only does it look so sleek and chic, but when it comes to cleaning, a smooth surface is the ideal choice. The backsplash is cut from the same slab as the countertop so the pattern flows continuously. Granite, marble, and quartz are the most common choice materials for this style. However, any stone would work just lovely.
Modern Day Glass
Glass tile backsplashes have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years because of its modern day appeal and easy to clean surface. It is primarily used as an accent in a kitchen. The pane can be mirrored, back-painted glass, or even printed with a photo or mural!
Pedal to the Metal
This is a favorite option for anyone who enjoys cooking and experimenting. Stainless steel is fireproof, sanitary, and easy-to-clean. Metal backsplashes are most popular with copper, tin, and metal tile picking up steam. They also come with pressed patterns or in a dramatic patina. Make sure you get samples before decided, these materials can sometimes be a bit overpowering.
Eco Friendly Wood
While wood is not fire safe to use behind a cooking surface, there are often other areas in a kitchen where it can provide a warmer appearance.
Depending on the desired look, a brick or stone kitchen backsplash can add serious impact to achieve an old feeling or "outdoor" ambiance.
