Tile is a natural choice for a kitchen backsplash: it comes in a wide number of colors, sizes, styles, and it's easily cleaned. No matter what your kitchen's style, you will be able to find tile to suit your taste.

Tile is an ancient material, but it can also look very modern. For instance, if you desire a Tuscan theme, you can use distressed tiles, arranged and cut in an arch--and perhaps adorned with flourishes in relief--to evoke the right old-world look. If you lean more toward a stark modern aesthetic, imagine a backsplash entirely of 1-by-1 glass tiles, representing a variety of primary colors, all set against white walls.

Because tile comes in so many sizes and styles, you can easily use tile to mimic the geometries of your home and kitchen. Rectangular tiles can be placed to resemble bricks, as well as the shapes of windows or drawers.

You can make your backsplash design pop by interspersing colorful glass tiles, perhaps placing them vertically if the rest of the tile is placed horizontally. Painted art tiles can be placed strategically, allowing you to enjoy art while you chop and then wipe it clean, too.

But tile isn't your only choice. Wood wainscot gorgeously compliments an arts and crafts-style kitchen or you can easily and beautifully continue your countertop material up the wall. Granite, marble, as well as recycled materials come in many wonderful colors and textures, perfect for your new kitchen backsplash.
