So Many Options
From traditional tile to trendy glass — and shiny metal to rustic wood — there is seemingly no end of choices for kitchen backsplashes today. "Tile is still the most popular backsplash material, with natural stone a fast-growing second," says John Morgan, 2013 National President of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. "But with the right installer, you can make just about any material work."
Salvaged Materials: Antique Wood Mosaic
A foil to shimmering stainless steel, this mosaic tile backsplash from the HGTV Dream Home 2014 kitchen is fashioned from antique boat wood. Impervious to moisture, it requires neither grout nor sealant.
Salvaged Materials: Reclaimed Wood
Who says hardwood is only meant for floors? The standout feature of this open-concept kitchen is the reclaimed wood backsplash that warms up the stainless steel appliances and concrete floor.
Paper: Marble + Wallpaper
A white kitchen doesn't have to be ALL white. Here, a gleaming white Carrara marble backsplash gives way to make the fanciful floral wallpaper the star.
Paper: Picture Perfect
Break from tradition with a custom kitchen backsplash that doubles as a photo wall. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn gave a sentimental twist to this sleek, modern kitchen with a cutting-edge backsplash printed from a favorite family photo. Orange accents brighten the monochromatic palette.
Reflective Finish: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
This mirrored backsplash might be the fairest of them all. A small kitchen space immediately feels larger with this mirrored surface and bright white marble countertops.
Reflective Finish: Antique Mirror
The antiqued mirror backsplash in this 19th Century Japanese kitchen has just enough reflective qualities to brighten the small space without being too distracting. The mirror's vintage finish pairs well with custom wood cabinetry.
Budget Friendly: Coffee Beans
Featured in Blog Cabin 2014, a coffee and tea bar became the inspiration for this cozy coffeehouse design. Cast in epoxy, this coffee bean backsplash creates an eye-catching focal point and gives texture to the wall.
Budget Friendly: Tin Sheets
Once a traditional ceiling adornment, tin is now making its way into the kitchen backsplash arena. The tin backsplash in this white kitchen is a budget-friendly fix that also adds visual interest. White cabinets and countertops keep the small space feeling light and open.
Any chef would feel right at home in this colorful cottage kitchen with its bold and energetic backsplash. The custom blue cabinets in this kitchen form the perfect background for the unique green, blue and white tile.
