Make a (Back)Splash

Our kitchens are the hearts of our homes. It’s where we cook our meals, where we catch up with our families and friends, and during parties it’s where people congregate. In addition to its function, it is important to us that our kitchens be beautiful and comfortable too.

One of the easiest (and least expensive) ways to make a statement in the kitchen is with a unique backsplash. The use of a bold tile or interesting texture can elevate any kitchen and turn it into a true focal point of creativity in the home. Below we’ve included some of our favorite kitchen backsplash ideas, perfect for anyone looking to spruce up their cooking and entertaining space.

We love the idea of a complete black and white kitchen. There are few things more timeless than black and white and the end result will always be something stylish, clean and modern. Bonus; this kitchen would look amazing with black stainless steel appliances like our SMD2470AH microwave drawer. The use of black subway tile and black countertops paired with white walls and cabinets in this kitchen keep the space from being too dark while still making a bold black and white statement.

We love how the exposed brick wall compliments the vintage floral design of this tile. Because the brick is painted white, the texture stands out and can mix with a patterned tile. The tile and the brick are both muted colors so they don’t clash but rather complement one another. This kitchen also offers a fun pop of color with the olive green cabinetry, which goes perfectly with the more muted colors of the backsplash.

Take the Subway 

Subway tile is having a major moment right now, and for good reason. The tile is extremely affordable and creates a modern sleek looking backsplash that can feel right at home in any space. We love this kitchen’s unique take on the look of subway tile. Laying the tile in a herringbone pattern utilizes the modern aspect of the subway tiles in an unexpected way, the end result being a completely transformative and beautiful kitchen.
