Materials for Kitchen Backsplash Designs

Webster Interiors will help you find the right Kitchen Backsplash Design for your home!

Kitchen backsplash designs can accent your kitchen and be both functional as well as beautiful. The most popular types of kitchen backsplashes are ceramic and porcelain tiles, as well as easy to clean stainless steel.  Other kitchen backsplash designs utilize natural stone, glass or metal tiles, and faux painting or wallpaper.  Whether you are changing the look of the backsplash or adding one this can be a quick and easy way to brighten up the existing kitchen.

Keep in mind when selecting a backsplash, it is important to have it match the permanent fixtures in your kitchen such as flooring and cabinetry rather than your appliances which will change over time.

 Tile Kitchen Backsplash Designs

Tile Backsplashes: The nice thing aboutusing tile as a backsplash is that it comes in a huge variety of sizes, colors, textures, and shapes. It is even possible to have custom painted tiles to match any theme or design. In addition, a tile backsplash can be easy to install as well as easy to clean. Ric says that you should consider choosing the same tile in a smaller size for your kitchen backsplash that you’ve chosen for the floor

Types of Tiles
Natural Stone Tiles

The most popular natural stone tiles are marble and granite. Of the natural stones marble captures more detail than granite and since it is a softer stone it is good for applications like kitchen backsplashes.

Metal Tiles

This material can work very well for use in modern style kitchen backsplashes. The tiles can be installed as the entire surface from counter to the bottom of the cabinets. Brushed aluminum tiles are good for 1950’s retro design kitchens. Metal tiles should match the color of the faucets and lighting.

Glass Tiles

A new design trend in kitchen backsplashes is glass, as they come in a huge variety of colors, patterns, and sizes and are easy to clean, and scratch resistant.  They also reflect natural light giving you a crisp, clean look.

Wallpaper Kitchen Backsplash Designs

Wall papering kitchen backsplashes can dress up a kitchen with very little work. Especially with pre pasted wallpaper. This will be a lot easier to apply! You will find that, with a small area for backsplash, the job shouldn’t take very much time to complete. Just make sure that you choose wallpaper that is washable, so that spattering from cooking and splashes can be removed.
