A kitchen backsplash can be very useful in protecting your kitchen walls against water, and also in covering up gaps in the wall. Furthermore, they look amazing and can easily transform the appearance of your entire kitchen. To really make it stand out, the backsplash should contrast with the counter tops. If you are choosing a natural stone backsplash, you have to know that it will require some maintenance, because it needs to be sealed every six months to a year.

Nevertheless, it is also crucial to keep in mind that you should express your own creative style with your backsplash. It has to match the theme of your kitchen cabinets, be it traditional, modern, or rustic. If you are remodelling your kitchen, this is also a great way to mix up the pattern and bring in tiles of different colors and shapes. Since the kitchen is a smaller space, feel free to make it bright and vibrant without the worry of it overwhelming the whole look of the kitchen. If a more elegant and classy look is what you want, then a simple wood or brick backsplash design should be perfect for you. Here are some great backsplash design to choose from.

  1. Floral Printed Glass

A great way to bring additional fun elements into your kitchen is to incorporate backsplash designs with  printed glass. Apart from using printed glass as a backsplash, you can also put it in other locations in your home.  You can even have your own personal pictures printed on the glass if that is what you prefer. Printed glass particularly shines most in a modern kitchen design, especially with bright colors like orange and pink which can be in contrast to a kitchen with an all white counters and cabinets. The lighting should create a translucent effect against the glass. Also, featuring orange and pink in other parts of the room is a perfect way to add a color balance, such as adding fresh yellow flowers as a great finishing touch to bring the design together.

  1. Dreaming of Green

While just adding this color as your kitchen backsplash is a fun and creative way to add your own personal style into the room, painting an entire kitchen in key lime green might be a bit overwhelming. So, it is a great idea to add additional accents of green all through the kitchen to balance out the color of the tile and also to ensure that the room comes together. The color will pair well with light wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances.

  1. Rustic Wooden Backsplash

A wooden backsplash is perfect for those who are looking to create a rustic chic home design. Though the backsplash can blend right into the counter tops, the dark look of your cabinets should balance the look. Using wood as a backsplash design is a very good way to give your kitchen a rustic look. If you paint all the walls black, it might create a kitchen design that appears too dark and makes the kitchen look smaller, therefore, adding a brighter accent wall might be a good idea. If you like this idea, make sure you find ways to lighten the room up and add your own unique personal style.
