11 Best Backsplashes for Your Kitchen Remodel

How to Choose a Backsplash

There are several important things to consider when picking your backsplash. Like all of your design decisions, we advise you to take your time and look at lots of pictures.

What Are Your Priorities?

Backsplashes need to be easy to keep clean. However, not every backsplash is asked to do the same kind of work. You will make different choices if you intend to execute labor-intensive cooking projects that have the potential to get messy as opposed to an aesthetic work of art that won’t likely see too much action. 

Identify Your Vibe

Are you looking to bring a splash of color or style? Many homeowners choose to make their backsplash a focal point in the kitchen. Others prefer more neutral spaces and subtle vibes. Articulating the role you envision for your backsplash is an important first step to finding the right one.

Pick Your Materials and Arrangement

You get to pick not only the product but also get to pick the way it is installed. For example, selecting subway tiles still leaves you with options about how your backsplash is laid out. You could choose vertical, herringbone, subway, brick, and more.

Timeless Backsplashes

Gotta keep it classic? Timeless farmhouse kitchen backsplashes, neutral materials, and more. Here are some of our favorite looks.

Brick Kitchen Backsplash- We love the vintage appeal of authentic brick lends to a backsplash. This suggests a repurposed space and a durable backdrop for your daily cooking.

Rustic Brick Farmhouse Kitchen Backsplash

White Ceramic Subway Tile- Whether you choose whitewashed brick or a high-gloss finish, you can’t go wrong with a classic white subway tile backsplash.

Natural Stone- There’s nothing more timeless than natural materials. Your kitchen is a serene space with a natural stone backsplash.

Creative Backsplash Ideas

Ready for something a little more funky? Here are some creative backsplash ideas to inject character into your kitchen design.

Copper Backsplash- We don’t see copper backsplashes every day, but we love the vintage feel and soulful texture that they provide. With more sizes, stamped options, and patterns than ever, take a long hard look at copper backsplashes.

Glass Tile- Versatile glass can be any color or shape you like. Extend your sleek vision or customize your color palette with shiny glass kitchen backsplash tile.

A Splash of Color- What color strikes your fancy? Here are some of our favorite daring backsplash colors for 2024.

Black Backsplash- We love moody black for a backsplash. This dark transition creates a sophisticated vibe that can temper an airy design or echo rich colors.

Green Backsplash- Deep forest greens and seafoams belong on kitchen walls. We love green subway tile backsplash and hexagonal tile in green.

Magenta Backsplash- The Pantone Color of the Year is Peach Fuzz. This tender peach hue gives an optimistic zing to any place you put it.

Mix and Match- You don’t have to pick just one thing and put it everywhere. You can mix and match your backsplash materials to delineate your workspace.

Modern Backsplash Looks

In the market for a completely contemporary look? We love a good sleek backsplash. Here are our favorite modern looks for backsplashes in 2024.

Mirrored Backsplash- Bounce natural light through your kitchen with a mirrored backsplash. Available in any shape you want, mirrored tiles are an underutilized pick for backsplashes.

Metal Tile- Just like mirrored backsplash tile, metal backsplash tiles moves light into your workspace. We love hexagonal metal tiles, metal subway tiles, and the myriad of other shapes that are now metal tile options.

Slab Backsplash- If you hate grout lines and want a clean, interrupted space, slab marble or solid-surface backsplashes might best embody the sophistication you seek.
