Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

Kitchen Backsplash ideas


When it comes to the kitchen backsplash it is my opinion that less is definitely more. You don’t want you attention to go only to the backslash when you have spent thousands on your cabinets. There are many ways to do a backsplash. You can use tin, Formica, Granite, Quartz or whatever materials you use on the counters.

There are many kitchen backsplash ideas on the above website. I love this site as it helps us all visualize the finished result. The space between the counter and the underside of the wall cabinet is in good practice about 18 inches. This can be 17 to 19 depending on the ceiling height or how tall the homeowner is may be a consideration.

When looking at kitchen backsplash ideas you may be thinking of using smaller tile. Personally I prefer either 3 x 6 inch in a subway or 4 x 4 inch tile. You can also use 6 x 6 which I personally like if laid in a diamond pattern. There are so many options. You can mix and match. I definitely like the 2 x 2 inserts to add a splash of color to the back splash.

The backsplash ideas shown here are great. I usually do not recommend a side splash unless the stove is close to the wall or there is a natural a way to run the tile into the side of a window or doorway. There are many kitchen backsplash ideas out there especially now that we have access to the internet. As I said above less is more.

In closing

  • Choose smaller tile for the backsplash
  • Only use side splashes if necessary
  • Using small color inserts are great maybe 2 X 2 inches
  • Subway and diamond looks good to most people in my experience.

The backsplash ties the kitchen design together and careful consideration is needed when researching kitchen backsplash ideas to get the look you want.
