Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

July 30, 2020

The kitchen backsplash is essentially a canvas, and can be painted or should I say tiled in many different ways. With so many kitchen tiling options to choose from, we have curated a list of popular kitchen backsplash design ideas, so that you can keep it hot in the kitchen!

Kitchen Backsplash Tile Colours 

A seamless white tiled backsplash is a sure choice, and can be created using a range of materials and shapes to suit your kitchen. Greyscale kitchen tiles are neutral, yet add character to your kitchen. Black kitchen tiles are a bold choice enjoying an increasing presence in kitchen and home renovations as a backsplash and/or countertops. 

Coloured Kitchen Tiles 

Make your kitchen pop with personality by adding a coloured splashback! There are so many amazing shades to choose from, with blue-tiled kitchen splashbacks a popular design trend. If you want to make a statement, consider adding emerald green, red or even yellow tiled splashbacks. Ensure that you neutralise the tiles with white cabinetry. 

Tile Materials

Classy and clean marble kitchen backsplashes are a popular and easy to clean option, and you could add a modern twist by using Calcutta marble mosaic tiles. Another common option is ceramic (glazed) or porcelain tiles that suit any kitchen and budget, with the water-resistant abilities providing an added bonus. Glass tiles with their non-porous nature are becoming a more popular option, especially bold black kitchen backsplashes. As used in professional kitchens, stainless steel backsplashes are an easy to clean option, with tiled stainless steel used to add texture. Another way metal is being added to the kitchen is as copper fittings, that could also provide a unique kitchen backsplash opportunity. Stone tiles such as travertine tile or manufactured stone veneer are used to create warmth, but some stone options require sealing. 

Geometric Tiles 

Geometric tiles are a modern way to spice up the kitchen, with the classic white subway kitchen tiles providing a timeless and iconic choice. You can add a modern twist by using a chevron or herringbone tile pattern. Hexagon tiles are a trendy alternative available in a range of colours and sizes, and can complement any kitchen design. Add an element of class to your kitchen with beautiful and glamorous arabesque kitchen tiles. Allow the white tiles to pop by adding dark grouting. It is important to engage a professional Perth tiling service to achieve a seamless finish.

Patterns Tiles 

With the borders closed, add international flavour to your kitchen with fun and beautifully painted Spanish tiles. Another way to spice up your splashback is to use Moroccan Kitchen Tiles to compliment timber and brass finishes. Patchwork tiles can be used to incorporate a range of colours to create a unique, warm and homely feel.
