Blue Backsplash Ideas
Bright and Beachy
Bring the turquoise hues of the ocean into your kitchen with a sea glass backsplash. The bright mini arabesque pattern adds energy to the room while a sandy wall color and white cabinetry help keep the tiles from overwhelming the space.
Simple and Sleek
A single sheet of glass, painted blue on the back, gives this kitchen a clean and contemporary look. The blue backspash complements the room's black and steel accents plus provides easy-to-clean protection behind the stove and sink.
Horizontal Mixed Blues
Add subtle color to a small kitchen with staggered blue, green, and beige glass subway tiles. The horizontal backsplash extends from the countertop to the ceiling to make the space seem more expansive.
Splashy Mosaic Tiles
Add drama to an otherwise white kitchen with a bright wall of aqua-color glass mosaic tiles. Extend the bold blue backsplash to the ceiling for a feature focal point or keep it contained to just above the sink for a functional and frugal way to update your home.
Backsplashes aren't limited to horizontal designs. Contrast classic white subway tiles with vertical blue tiles of the same style to make your kitchen seem taller and more spacious.
