51 Kitchen Backsplash Ideas for Every Kind of Aesthetic
A functional space like a kitchen may be a workhorse, but that doesn’t mean it has to look bland. That’s why brainstorming through backsplash ideas can add just the right amount of embellishment and pizzazz without overwhelming the room. “Kitchen backsplashes are a place where one is able to make a large impact visually,” says Lauren Martin-Moro, founder and creative director of LM Design Associates in Los Angeles. A kitchen backsplash is like jewelry, filled with options for every aesthetic. Go bold with colorful accents like a painted glass tile backsplash or stick to the eternally classic white subway tile for an understated look. Cover only the space behind the cooktop, or let the wall tile design stretch all the way to the ceiling for jaw-dropping impact.
Personal preference, however, is what matters when it comes to selecting your dream kitchen backsplash. “The most popular backsplash for any project will be the one that delights those who live in the space,” says Roy Marcus, brand ambassador at Artistic Tile.
