Six Popular Kitchen Backsplash Designs

The following backsplash designs offer you the chance to use your own creativity while still promising quality and easy-cleaning durability.

  • Glass tiles. A backsplash made of small glass tiles nestled neatly alongside ceramic tile makes good use of color without breaking your budget. Choose one or more colors to create a lovely solid or patterned design.
  • Extended countertops. If you adore your countertops, why not extend them into the backsplash? The unbroken lines present a sleek, modern look.
  • Metallic tiles. Want some sparkle in your kitchen? Paired with a dramatic faucet and under-cabinet lighting, metallic tiles create a memorable backdrop.
  • Backpainted glass. A long sheet of backpainted glass in a pleasing accent color can add life to your kitchen, and cleanup will always be easy.
  • Painted tiles. If you want a backsplash that is more decorative than functional, try any kind of tile-painting technique you like, and place the painted tiles in strategic spots to complete the look.
  • Mural designs. If you love the look of tile but want something more unusual, opt for a mural. You can purchase tiles that are already painted with a mural scene or try your hand at painting your own.

The Kitchen Backsplash: A Finishing Touch

Your kitchen backsplash design can be the finishing touch to a beautiful remodeling job. You view this area above your countertops quite frequently every day, so choose a design that not only meets your practical needs, but speaks to the designer in you, as well.
