Kitchen Backsplashes / September 18, 2018 / Alfred Johnson.
Most people are after matching stainless steel appliances in their kitchen. Why? Because they look sharp and are central to a modern, updated design. Using stainless steel as the backsplash–either with tiles or a solid sheet–is a continuation of that same feel and creates a sleek, uniform look. The material is easy to wipe clean, doesn’t require grout and will last forever.
Whether you’re remodeling your entire or kitchen or just looking to refresh the space, we’ve narrowed down a few different kitchen backsplash ideas.
Given the numerous shapes, sizes and colors available, ceramic tile is probably the most versatile option (it’s also proven to be timeless). There’s plenty of room to play with patterns while still maintaining clean lines: stack tiles in columns, stagger them, or lay them at an angle. Most tile requires minimal maintenance, just be sure to seal the grout so it doesn’t get stained or absorb water.
From pounded copper to bamboo to chalkboard, there’s really no limit to what materials can be used.
