Trendy Backsplash Ideas

 In blog, Kitchen

If you’re planning a kitchen remodel, one of the most fun elements to update is the kitchen backsplash. The backsplash is an opportunity to inject some color or texture into the room, and it’s a great time to show off some of your personality. There are many patterns, shapes, and textures you can play with, so we’ve put together some of our favorite trends for backsplashes.


Tile is a perennial design favorite for backsplashes. There are tens of thousands of variations to choose from; go with a classic subway tile or use hand-painted tiles for an artistic touch. For a different take on the subway tile, try extending the coverage all the way to the ceiling.

Natural Stone

Granite and marble are popular choices for countertops, and they work well as backsplashes in certain kitchens. One trend we like is a small white marble backsplash combined with colorful wallpaper.


Make a small kitchen bigger with a mirrored backsplash. Not only does it give the illusion of a bigger space, but it also offers a fun diner feel. For a similar, but less vibrant, effect, use antiqued mirrors as the backsplash.

Tin Sheets

What used to be a trendy ceiling tile is now becoming a hot material for kitchens. Tin sheets have a vintage feel and add rusticity and texture to the room. When paired with white cabinets, tin sheets can make a space feel homey and more open.

Bold Colors

One trend we love is using the backsplash as an excuse to go bold. When paired with a white or black counter, a bright, bold color choice will make your kitchen stand out.


Metallic backsplashes are in right now, and they pair well with most cabinets and colors. Metals such as stainless steel help create a clean, modern feel, while antiqued metals create a more rustic vibe.

Chalkboard Paint

The note-takers and the kids will be some of the first in line to use the backsplash/chalkboard. Keep recipes and phone numbers, or get creative and doodle.
