5 Stunning Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

A kitchen may be one of the most functional rooms in a home, but that doesn’t mean it has to look boring! Your kitchen backsplash can add just the right amount of energy and pizzazz without overwhelming the space. When deciding on a backsplash, consider not just the counter material, but also the cabinets, appliances, and fixtures in your kitchen.

A kitchen backsplash can be customized to match everyone’s aesthetic. Go bold with colorful accents, or stick to something understated for a more classic look. When choosing your design, decide whether to cover only the space behind the cooktop or let the wall tile design stretch all the way to the ceiling for a bigger impact.

With so many kitchen backsplash ideas on the internet, deciding which style or color scheme will best suit your home can be overwhelming. We are showcasing some of our favorite backsplash designs from recent projects to help you get inspired and find a backsplash that represents YOU. Take a look!

Chevron will never go out of style! Statement chevron backsplash adds a contemporary feel, interest, and texture to this home’s kitchen. The soothing blue tones pair beautifully with the marble island. The backsplash stands out especially well next to the neutral cabinets and countertops.

Colorful Tile Backsplash

In this kitchen’s bar area, neutral open shelving is complemented by a colorful mosaic tile backsplash, adding a touch of liveliness and texture, as well as a modern quality we just adore! The tile’s glossy, reflective surface also lends added dimension. A blue tray and colorful bottles tie everything together.

This client wanted a home with a historic feel. The Tudor-inspired chef’s kitchen features a repetitive square design on the backsplash, which adds visual rhythm and harmony when paired with the neutral wood tones, as well as the hanging copper pots and other metallic accents.

Geometric Tile Backsplash

This backsplash makes quite the statement in this Green Hills kitchen. Fascinating spherical shapes paired with a herringbone tile pattern produce an energetic look. A white and gray color scheme makes the kitchen backsplash design just noticeable enough without overpowering the space.

Unconventional Subway Tile Backsplash

An interesting layout can make basic tiles look different, as seen in this kitchen backsplash dressed in classic white ceramic subway tiles. For example, vertical subway tiles were used instead of the classic horizontal. They are also in a slightly variegated shade, making the traditional subway tile feel fresher. Natural wood and pink shades add a feminine touch.

The beauty of a backsplash is that it’s not typically a ton of space, making it a great place to take risks from a design perspective. Hone in on your personal style and pick a backsplash that makes you happy!
