Kitchen backsplash has the ability to transform the region’s interior with the right mix of designs and color.

The versatility of mosaic tiles is timeless and their striations make the backsplash region appear longer than its actual size. These can be used in various layouts to give the kitchen a spaced out look or create a hypnotically arresting atmosphere. In this kitchen the dark cabinets and charming black granite counter get a instant uplift with cream and light brown mosaic tiles that manages to neatly bring together both diverse areas.

2. Natural stone tiles

Natural stone tiles made of materials like slate and travertine have an earthy look about them that is hard to gloss over even after polishing as their natural variations make them unique. When you have a backsplash created out of natural stone tiles like slate in this case, these patterns and lines will be belong only to your stylish kitchen making it unique.

4. Patterned tiles

Tiles with simple and complicated geometrical patterns is trusted and favored backsplash idea that has been used since these first appeared in the market. These are commonly used as it is easier to match them with other design and colors in the kitchen like cabinets, floor or counter. While big tiles with spaced out patterns are easier to match with other kitchen objects, smaller tiles with  busy pattern give a cozy look.

5. Terra cotta tiles

Dark wood cabinets and black granite counter would have made this traditional kitchen look dim if the kitchen planner had not been wise enough to set up white laminated cabinets above the counter to brighten up the region. To maintain cordial partnership between both sections,  patterned terracotta tiles with a sandy hue in brown and cream have been applied. The practical window brings in natural light and fresh air while appliances and lighting ensure convenience.

6. Glass backsplash

When you are unable to find the right tile that matches the counter or does not belong to the same family then it is best to use a solid color instead of a pattern. In these circumstances a solid colored glass back-splash makes a bold design statement and also reflects light that makes this modern kitchen look bigger than its actual size.

7. Faux brick backsplashes

The finish and gloss of ceramic tiles sometimes makes them look like glass tiles and when it is in this classic herringbone pattern the kitchen back-splash receives a unique design layout. The layout is named after the skeletal structure of Herring fish that is graceful as each rectangular tile lined up at 45 degree slant. While this design is commonly used in classic kitchen for its intricate style the pattern is now also being adopted in modern bathrooms too.

9. Granite backsplash

In a neutral toned kitchen when you want to retain harmony among different sections then using even a single line of wrong accent tile on back-splash can spoil the co-ordination. Using the same granite as the counter saves you the trouble of selecting appropriate accent tiles for the back-spash.

10. Colorful tiles
