Here are some great ideas for a beautiful backsplash in your kitchen:

Black glazed tile creates a graphic offset against the white range hood housing and stainless steel appliances.

Take your pick from among a wide variety of styles and patterns of tiles in the market. These chocolate-brown porcelain tiles mimic the warmth from the wooden-finish laminate cabinets, and still provide a dark backdrop to stainless steel pots and appliances.

Recycled glass tiles are not only eco-sustainable, but also give off a lovely, textured finish despite providing a smooth enough surface for wiping off stains.

Subway tiles have quietly gained popularity within the last decade because of their simple but hip and vintage quality. They are best used in eclectic-designed kitchens, but also look right at home in country- and traditional-style kitchens.

White tiles look clean and unassuming, but the medallion-shaped tiles pictured above definitely add a sense of depth and classic glam to this kitchen.

Moroccan-style, medallion-shaped tiles give this marble-topped kitchen sink that out-of-the-ordinary look and feel.

Don’t feel like you should limit yourself to just one kind of tile for the backsplash. Combining two kinds—like the white subway tiles and decorated ceramic square tiles above—are definitely allowed, especially if you want a little something unexpected.

You may also choose to frame certain tiles apart from the rest of the backsplash, to add focal points in several areas of the kitchen wall. Diamond mosaic tiles framed in two different areas immediately point to the cooktop and sink areas.

Mosaic tiles aren’t new, but with the many designs available today, it’s super-easy to get a show-stopping backsplash like this reflective mosaic one.

Here’s a graphic, B&W arrangement of mosaic tiles that updates Shaker-style cabinets nicely.

Iridescent mosaic tiles almost camouflage this crystal and glass display, but still manage to make it look extra sparkly.

If you’d rather do away with regular cleaning or maintenance of backsplash grout, pick a single sheet of glass instead. Simply wipe down with a wet and dry cloth after use.

The veiny marble backsplash in this all-white kitchen put the focus on its imposing but grand range hood.

Bamboo is another eco-sustainable option that makes this sleek and contemporary kitchen counter still look warm and natural.

Sometimes, backsplashes are all the ornamentation a kitchen needs, like this all-black one with zebrawood backsplash and counter.

Source

Mirrors, as we all know, add depth and make a space appear bigger. In this kitchen’s case, it helps the kitchen look like an extension of the dining areas opposite the room.

An unusual but interesting way to make your kitchen feel like it’s not just a backroom where all the dirty work happens is this LED-lighted backsplash.

You and your guests will be mesmerised by this stunning aquarium display acting as a kitchen backsplash. Be careful not to watch the fish while you’re cooking though; You’ll want your eyes on what you’re preparing, not on your water pets!
