5 Kitchen Backsplash Ideas We Love

Recently, we were doing some pinning on Pinterest, and we came across some truly beautiful backsplash ideas for patterns, colors, and materials. Let’s take a look at five kitchen backsplash ideas we love and maybe it will help spark your design creation for your own kitchen.

Subway Tile

We absolutely love the look of a subway tile backsplash. Subway tile has a timeless, classic look and feel. It works well with any style of kitchen from traditional to modern and is available in many different colors.

We’ve seen the traditional pattern of it being laid out horizontally, but have also seen some other interesting applications where the tile is laid out in a herringbone pattern.

Stainless Steel and Aluminum

Talk about giving your kitchen some extra sparkle! If you love the look of a contemporary or modern styled kitchen, then using stainless steel or aluminum as a backsplash would be the perfect material for you.

These two materials are typically used in commercial kitchens, but have now found their way into being used in the home. We’ve seen some really interesting applications from just using a straight sheet of stainless steel for a backsplash, to some really beautiful aluminum tile patterns.

Back Painted Glass

Back painted glass is typically used in modern and traditional styles of kitchens and is an excellent way to add a large pop of color to your kitchen backsplash.

If you’re looking for something that’s versatile, back painted glass can be painted in any color and is available from tiles, to very large sheets that can be cut into many different sizes and shapes.

Copper Pennies

This one is just plain old attention-grabbing and creative! Who would have thought about using copper pennies as a backsplash?!! And after doing a little more research apparently there’s a whole lot you can do with copper pennies in a kitchen! Stay tuned for a future blog on that one!

Using wood as a backsplash isn’t something you see everywhere in typical kitchen spaces. But hey, if copper pennies can be used as a backsplash option, why not wood?!

Depending upon the application and where it’s used, wood can have a very rustic and country type of feel to it. If you like the look and feel of using this type of material as a backsplash you can run it vertically or horizontally, you can even paint or stain it.
