Giving your kitchen a new look isn't tough—all you need to get inspired are some new kitchen backsplash ideas. Whether you need a backsplash that's functional, stylish, or a little of both, there's a tile out there that will work for your space. Decide whether you want a modern look, an artisan feel, or a natural vibe, and then a change in your backsplash scenery can usually do the trick to give you the feeling of a whole new kitchen. Here are some tips and inspirational ideas.
Go with Glass for a Clean, Streamlined Look
If you want a backsplash that has a nice, streamlined look and is easy to clean, consider going with glass tile. Not only will glass reflect light, but its smooth, contemporary feel will add a warm glimmer to your kitchen. It's also a beautiful complementary material when paired with wood cabinets and stone countertops. Whether you prefer slim, rectangular tiles, or those of the small, square variety, you can find a number of shimmery hues in the Soiree collection. Consider going with sultry earth tones or iridescent shades of pink.
Achieve an Inviting, Modern Look with Metal
If you're a fan of reality cooking shows and find yourself drooling over those commercial-looking kitchens, then infusing some metal into your backsplash might help you channel your inner chef. Whether you go all out with metal or choose to use it as an accent in your backsplash design, metallic tile is warm and inviting. It can also serve as a complementary material next to your countertops and cabinets, not to mention your favorite cookware. The Ion Metals collection boasts square- and rectangle-shaped tiles in bronze and nickel wall tiles, accent tiles, and trim, allowing you to create your own custom design.
Cook up an All-Natural Look
If you're after a natural look, there are numerous kitchen backsplash ideas that will blend seamlessly with your countertop and appliances. If you prefer a true stone look, consider the Slate Collection. Whether it's granite, travertine, or limestone, natural stone adds texture to your design that you might not be able to achieve with any other material. You can achieve a timeless look or incorporate a more contemporary flair, and you can choose from an array of shapes, sizes, colors, and trims to create your own one-of-a-kind design.
A new kitchen backsplash can change the entire look and feel of your kitchen. Start with these inspirational ideas, and choose the perfect material for your new backdrop.
