1 | Patchwork
Instead of sticking to one design for the backsplash, experiment with colors, finishes, or patterns. It’s a great excuse for indecisive people to use as many tile style as you want. However, if you’re worried you’ll mess up, it’s safe to start with a minimal patchwork kitchen backsplash. Machuca tiles make for great materials to play with in this backsplash layout.
2 | Terrazzo
Another fun way to update your kitchen is with a terrazzo-finish backsplash. This chic material used to be for floorings and walls, but the modern use now includes countertops. The matrix and aggregates of terrazzo can make a myriad of colorful and exciting mixes, so your kitchen will never go boring.
3 | Metallic
For a dramatic kitchen backsplash, you may opt for a metallic finish. Although cooking isn’t always (or never) glamorous, that doesn’t mean your kitchen can’t be glitzy. Remember to not go over-the-top, though, because it can easily go from classy to tacky.
4 | Wood (Not)
Natural wood can be a good choice to deviate from the usual tile backsplash, and to achieve a rustic kitchen look. However, it’s not practical for people who are always on-the-go and rarely have time to do the cleaning. Here’s an alternative: wood tile backsplash, which gives an almost natural wood look but easier to maintain.
5 | Graphic
Against a pristine white kitchen wall, splash exciting color and graphic patterns. You can go for a classic geometric motif or an eclectic pattern that arrests everyone’s attention. You can even go full-height with a graphic backsplash to highlight a focal point in the kitchen.
6 | 3D Effect
Give your regular subway tile layout an oopmh
by using a more tactile material. Use beveled ones or these midcentury modern Heath oval tiles laid out in this kitchen. Go extra
by using a bold color against a neutral background or, mix and match colors and finishes.
7 | Puzzle
Complete your kitchen’s classic look with an interesting backsplash tile shape. Whether it’s a white-on-white combination or a mix of different colors, a cool tile cut makes a curious visual appeal.
