This will give you a taste of what it would be like living with them.  To get started, consider the following tips to help you choose the perfect kitchen backsplash.


The stretch of wall between your counters and cabinets acts as a visual focal point as much as a catch-all for flying sauce splatters. It breaks up the monotony between your base and overhanging cabinets. A good backsplash should work well with the countertops, whether it accents it or offers a striking contrast.

Whatever your taste, use your backsplash as a platform to showcase your kitchen’s personality. Go bold with bright colors or compliment cabinets with softer tones like pale blue or dusty gray.


Luckily, the space behind your sink or below your vent hood often offers a larger field, giving you a chance to play with design elements. If you’re on a budget, this is a great opportunity to splurge on more expensive accent tiles. Try using an accent color or material to frame a rectangle of decorative tiles which draw the eye.


Your backsplash is a great arena to incorporate the unexpected. For smaller, dark kitchens install a glass window backing, to bring in extra light and provide easy clean up. Opt for metal sheets instead of ceramic tile for a more modern look. Tin, copper, and diamond back metal are great options that add both color and texture. You can also try cork behind a bar or mirrors to reflect light and brighten the entire space.
