Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

An elegant marble or granite kitchen backsplash can work beautifully with rich wood cabinets. In this example, the lighter tone of the backsplash and countertops create a visual break between the dark upper and lower cabinets.

The monochromatic color scheme of this kitchen is given a lift with a mosaic tile backsplash. Although the colors for the backsplash have been carried over from the rest of the kitchen, the use of small tiles and a random pattern create visual energy

Dark grey slate tiles provide a contrast to the simple clean lines of the white cabinetry in this modern kitchen design. In addition to the hit of color, the large size and natural finish of these tiles bring much-needed texture to the space.

Who says you have to tile the entire kitchen backsplash surface?!?! The creator of this kitchen chose to combine colorful tiles with a fun paint technique. Small tiles in groups of three have been randomly adhered to the painted area beneath the upper cabinets. This is definitely a budget-stretcher.

A carefully measured and installed section of backpainted glass will produce a stunning kitchen backsplash in a contemporary setting. Choose a paint color that will complement your kitchen design. This is an ideal spot for an accent color.

Tiny, metallic mosaic tiles transform the backsplash of this serving area, and undercabinet lighting gives it extra sparkle. You can achieve different effects by using different sizes of tiles.

Continuing your countertop material up onto the wall is an excellent option for a no muss, no fuss kitchen backsplash. This is something you can do with practically any countertop material.
