How To Pick the Perfect Kitchen Backsplash

August 28, 2019

Backsplash can create a subtle pop in a neutral kitchen to liven up the space, but its most important function is to protect the walls from liquids like water. We’re here to provide you with some of the latest and greatest ideas when it comes to selecting a backsplash for your kitchen!

Picking the right tile is the first step in your backsplash design process. There are so many tile design variations whether it be glazed bricks, moorish tile, subway tile, morrocan, herringbone, mosaic, marble, and the list goes on. We recommend looking up all of these different styles and selecting a design that speaks to you and best fits the vibe of your kitchen. Check out House Beautiful for more ideas to kickstart the design.

Once you’ve selected a tile design, don’t be afraid to mix and match! If you have a darker countertop counteract that using a white backsplash. Use your backsplash as a contrast in the kitchen that opposes the other decor.

Backsplash height is another prominent feature to take into consideration when designing your kitchen. Most people opt for the counter to cabinet height, but for a more centered, attention grabbing affect we recommend a full height backsplash. We also recommend finding a professional contractor to install your kitchen backsplash, but if you want to take on the project yourself just be sure to do your research for simple tips and tricks!
