5 Charming Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
Let these ideas inspire you to revamp your cooking space and whip up a delicious dessert
In all the homes we’ve visited and featured, it’s always exciting to see the kitchen. From compact corners to spacious ones, these spaces feature unique layouts, pretty décor, and lively walls. Speaking of walls, one of the first things we notice is the backsplash.
Whether it’s a bold color or a lovely pattern, the backsplash greatly contributes to the overall look of the cooking area. If you’re looking for ideas, here are five we loved from some of the homes we’ve featured:
1. Spanish tiles in a tiny kitchen
You wouldn’t notice the smallness of this cooking corner given the light palette that creates an illusion of bigger space. Aside from adding character to the area, the chosen Spanish tiles also form a perfect backdrop for the brass accents chosen to complete the nook.
2. Subway tiles are in
You’ve seen them in homes, stores, coffee shops, and other hip places—subway tiles are in and they are here to stay. The tiles in this kitchen give it an industrial feel while the white pieces and accessories keep it streamlined and inviting. Aside from white subway tiles, you can also work with black pieces to give your kitchen an edge.

3. Bricks for keeps
Aside from the well-loved subway tiles, many homeowners are enamored with the charm of brick walls. If you’ve saved up for a kitchen overhaul, brick walls can give your cooking corner a homey industrial feel. Pair it with distressed cabinets, sleek appliances, and wooden accessories for a vintage meets country-industrial look.
4. Chalkboard paint
Always forgetting recipes and measurements? Add a touch of quirk to your kitchen by opting for chalkboard walls. While you can depend on your DIY prowess to make this happen, it might be best to consult with a professional to achieve your creative wall. He or she can give you expert advice as well as the exact amount of paint you would need. Once you’re done, feel free to write grocery lists, your weekly menu, and even a conversion table.
5. Go mosaic.
Many homeowners choose to work with mosaic tiles as these teeny tiny wonders give any area a sophisticated and classic appeal. Depending on the look you want to achieve, you can work with tiles with hints of red and orange, brown, and even blue. The kitchen in this unit sports blue mosaic tiles to maintain the beach-inspired feel of the home. If you look at it closely, it would also remind you of a mermaid’s tail.
