Kitchen backsplashes are an obvious -- and often affordable -- place to play up style in your kitchen. Available in a wide variety of materials and colors, backsplashes come in any look that suits your kitchen's style. The most common type is a tile backsplash. Its durability and wipe-clean surface makes it an easy sell, but tile is also highly customizable. Tiles in all shapes, sizes, and colors can be configured into one-of-a-kind backsplashes. Beaded-board backsplashes are also a popular selection, and other wood backsplashes in interesting patterns are showing up in of-the-moment kitchen design. If you like a clean, streamlined look, solid-surfacing backsplashes and solid-sheet glass backsplashes might add the finishing touch to your decor. Natural materials such as brick and Mexican tile are perennial choices for a backsplash. They will last longer than any other element in your kitchen's design, and a professional installer can create interesting combinations that play up the subtle texture and pattern deviations of each. Browse our hundreds of photos of backsplashes to find a style and material you'll love. Plus, don't miss our DIY backsplash how-to. These step-by-step instructions make installing a backsplash easy.
