Beyond Subway: The Wonderful World of Backsplashes

Many homeowners gain a newfound appreciation for the backsplash when they are creating a new dream kitchen.  The backsplash represents the perfect combination of form and function. It not only protects your walls from splashes and spills, but also provides the opportunity for homeowners to showcase their style and personality. White subway tile remains a go-to option for many homeowners but is by no means the only option.  There is an endless array of materials, patterns and colors homeowners can use to make a profound and personal design statement for their new kitchen.  


Ceramic and porcelain tiles are classic choices for kitchen backsplashes. They come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and sizes, allowing you to create a look that suits almost every style, from traditional to modern.

Glass tiles offer a sleek and contemporary appearance. They are available in various textures and finishes, including glossy, frosted, and matte, making them a versatile choice for both small and large kitchens.

Natural stone such as granite, marble, and travertine are popular backsplash options. They add a touch of luxury and elegance to a kitchen. Each piece of natural stone is unique, creating a one-of-a-kind backsplash.

Stainless steel, copper, and aluminum tiles are excellent choices for a contemporary or an industrial-style kitchen. They are not only visually striking, but also durable and easy to clean.


Herringbone patterns involve laying tiles or materials in a zigzag pattern. This design adds a sense of movement and sophistication to your kitchen.

Similar to herringbone, chevron patterns consist of V-shaped tiles. They create a dynamic and visually appealing backsplash.

The brick bond pattern replicates the look of traditional brickwork. It adds a rustic and charming element to a kitchen, especially when using subway tiles.

Mosaic patterns involve using small, colorful tiles to create intricate designs. This option allows for creativity and personalization, converting a backsplash into a true work of art.

Geometric patterns, such as hexagons or diamonds, add a contemporary and trendy touch to a kitchen. They work well with various materials, from glass to ceramic.

For a minimalist and clean look, choose a solid color backsplash. This approach allows other elements in your kitchen, such as appliances or cabinetry, to take center stage.

Selecting a kitchen backsplash is a crucial aspect of kitchen design that transforms your kitchen's aesthetic and sets the tone for the entire space.
