A kitchen backsplash not only protects the walls above your workspace but adds charm and uniqueness to any kitchen. The sky is the limit when it comes to designing the perfect kitchen backsplash with different textures and shaped tiles that are available in a wide variety of materials like glass, natural stone, mirrors, brick, wood and metal. While every homeowner’s taste is unique and the options endless, here are three design ideas for 2021 that are making a splash.
- Ceiling-Height Backsplash. In years past, kitchen backsplash tile was installed in the space between the countertop and the bottom edge of the cabinets, but recently, many homeowners are choosing open shelving or windows in the kitchen instead of wall-to-wall cabinets. Ceiling-height backsplashes offer a modern look by uniting all aspects of the space and creating a focal point and a visual break from cabinets, allowing the space to feel more open and inviting.
- Metallic Finishes. Tiles that look and feel like real metals are all the rage, giving your kitchen backsplash an industrial feel. This type of tile comes in many colors and finishes and makes quite a statement when placed across the entire wall. Smaller metal tiles strategically placed can make for a dramatic accent.
- Brick. If you love the look of brick and creating a unique textured look, brick is the way to go, but it is important to note that the surface and the seams between them must be protected with a special moisture-resistant varnish. Kitchens can be a messy place and you will want to make sure that no moisture or grease ends up damaging your beautiful new brick backsplash.
