One of the great benefits of a tile backsplash—setting aside the fact that it'll protect your kitche's walls from unsightly, unsanitary food spatter—is that it can add great aesthetic appeal, visual diversity and color to your kitchen design. The tile backsplash in a kitchen—especially one that features an otherwise understated, contemporary design—is often a great place to experiment with bold designs, patterns and colors.
While this won’t necessarily cover all of your backsplash space, simply using framed art is a great way to create an easy, bold backsplash. You can hang larger pieces of art on the wall. Or a super easy fix, try leaning a series of framed art up against your counter.
When you've decided on the style for your cool kitchen backsplash, it's time to figure out how much material you'll need. You can do this by measuring the surface area you want to cover—likely anywhere from a small portion to the entirety of the walls between your kitchen's countertops and cabinets—and then sourcing the square footage of material needed to cover that surface area. For almost any type of tile, wood or metal backsplash, your local home improvement store or tile specialty store should offer a wide range of options.
For a very simple, super economical backsplash option, try using a contrasting paint color. For the most impact, choose a color that will really pop against the palette of the rest of the kitchen. To add an extra element of interest, consider a different paint finish (if you used an eggshell paint on the walls of your kitchen, consider a glossy finish for the backsplash). This will also really help your backsplash pop.
I’ve rounded up 9 of my favorite out-of-the-box backsplashes for those of you who, like me, like to mix things up a bit in your kitchen.
