Interior Design Feature: Kitchen Backsplash

A kitchen backsplash is so much more than a protector against water. It’s an easy way to draw attention to your personal style. Materials can vary from glass, stone, brick, wood, leaving you plenty of options. There’s the subway tile that has reached peak popularity thanks to HGTV and interesting mosaics like the Moroccan fish scales. Below are some of my favorite kitchen backsplashes for your viewing pleasure.

Marble Slab
Matching the backsplash to the countertop creates a sophisticated, seamless look that will stand the test of time.

Moroccan Fish Scales
This modern choice adds texture to your kitchen. It comes in many sizes and colors, but I love the simplicity of the white.

Glass
Glass tiles reflect light and can make your kitchen appear larger. The dreamy blue against the stainless steel and concrete looking countertops on the image below is stunning.

Colorful Mosaics
There are so many gorgeous patterns available to serve as the main focal point of design in your kitchen. The colorful design below packs a punch and is a stunning contrast to the natural wood elements in the countertop and open shelving.

Subway Tile Stacked
It’s no secret subway tile has made its way from a trend to a staple in home design. A new twist is to forgo the traditional bricked layout for a stacked style.
