Some common styles have become popular choices because of their wide availability and visual appeal. Subway tile is a classic choice that can be found in many commercial and residential kitchens. Subway tile's straightforward style is defined by rectangular ceramic tiles (usually in white or light colors) paired with light grout. This understated color scheme is popular, but a wide variety of colors can suit your kitchen design, and the rectangular tile allows for many pattern choices, as well.
With all of the wallpaper options these days (regular, temporary, handpainted, vinyl), you really can get creative if you want to go for this look. For a more bold look, have fun and choose a bright, patterned wallpaper. Or if you want to go with a more subdued approach, try a simple striped or polka dot paper.
A small kitchen can provide a number of unique design challenges in terms of decorating and optimizing spaces, but there are also several benefits of a smaller space, including efficiency of design and the lower cost involved in refurbishing less square footage.
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.
If artistic expression doesn't line up with your idea of a cool backsplash, you may want to consider some non-traditional materials, or even traditional ones in unique textures and colors. For example, stainless steel, copper and tin backsplashes can be found in colors and patterns that can lend a truly stunning visual aspect to any kitchen design. Granite or even ceramic tile can be scored, manipulated and colored to your exact specifications via tile specialty retailers. And some homeowners even opt for wood backsplashes, which can of course be stained and painted to reflect exactly the right amount of cool to suit your style.
