Here are a few examples that we hope will inspire you when deciding on how to finish that little bit of wall between the counter and cabinets that will reflect your taste and enhance the beauty of your kitchen, no matter what the style.
Whether country, Mediterranean or contemporary this relatively small space is one of the main decorative elements in the kitchen and your choice can complete the look and add to your enjoyment of this room.
As a bonus, we have added links to the style of house plan that has inspired the back-splash pictured.
If you enjoy antique accessories this distressed, gray mirror tile would fit perfectly in one of our Victorian style homes
This kind of look would be perfect in a modern kitchen, why not check out our collection of contemporary house plans
To give a European feeling to the kitchen, one of Jenn’s favorite back-splash materials is brick, which imparts a historical depth to the kichen decor and would fit perfectly in a Mediterranean style of kitchen
For a unique touch that will blend with many different styles, how about slate or an actual chalk board to blend practical with whimsical.
Don’t forget the clean, classic look of white on white using subway tiles as a durable, low maintenance back-splash that cleans-up in a breeze!
The timeless luxury of marble is an exquisite addition to your luxurious kitchen that will please the senses
Wood is a natural for siding the exterior of your home, but how about as a decorative statement inside your home. Particularly suited to urban style homes the hard wood back-splash works well in a contemporary kitchen and has its place in a chalet to impart added warmth and ambiance.
If white is not your thing, a pale or pastel colored ceramic tile will give depth to the kitchen space.
Geometric designs on the wall add an interesting focal point
Natural stone in a more modern or urban style creates a “zen” feeling in the kitchen
A black back-splash makes a dramatic statement
Black and white for a dramatic combination
