Kitchen counter and tile backsplash

White composite countertops with a tile backsplash and custom cabinets.

Your kitchen’s backsplash should compliment your countertops and cabinets in style, color and material. If you’ve been having a tough time deciding what to do with your backsplash feel free to check out our kitchen gallery here to get some ideas.

What Type of Backsplash Should I choose?

Although sometimes it’s simply a matter of matching what’s there, choosing the right backsplash really depends on what you have and what you are looking to achieve. If you have a plain, modern styled kitchen but want to add a little color and style you could opt for a tile or patterned backsplash. You can even add a little color here and there to the tile you install to create a more contemporary look. If you have a very busy kitchen and want to calm things down a bit you can keep your backsplash a plain solid color.

What Types of Backsplashes are Available?

Your choice for backsplashes are almost limitless. However the most common choices are ceramic or porcelain tile and slab materials like granite and quartz. You can also leave it bare and paint or cover it with wallpaper if you’re on a budget.

Since you won’t be using your backsplash as much as a countertop and it usually covers less space so if you’re looking for a place to spend a little more on the fancier stuff you can do it here.
