4 Backsplash Materials to Inspire Kitchen Envy

When it comes to design, the humble kitchen backsplash has come a long way. While it still protects your kitchen wall from spills and splatters, a backsplash done well can be the focal point of the entire room. 

With so many backsplash materials to choose from these days, there’s no limit to what you can do with this part of your kitchen.




Offset the neutral colors in your kitchen with tile in bright, bold colors and patterns. Imagine a pop of turquoise in an all-white kitchen, or a checkered pattern with alternating green and white tiles extending up to the ceiling. You can also stick with a monochromatic look while still mixing it up with textured tiles. Once you’re ready, check out Ann Sacks. It’s the perfect place to start your search for a beautiul backsplash tile.


Glass tiles are an excellent alternative to ceramic or porcelain tiles, and they’re especially easy to clean. Your friends and family won’t be able to look away from a beautiful glass mosaic design on your backsplash. And if you can’t find something exactly your style, you can customize your backsplash design on the fly thanks to the variety of choices at Waterworks. Stop by and talk with the professionals at their showroom in the Dallas Design District.


Tired of tile? How about a metal backsplash? Depending on the type and finish of the metal, you can create a dramatic effect in your kitchen. Stainless steel modernizes a traditional kitchen, whereas copper or brass gives your kitchen a rustic, vintage vibe. Punched and hammered tin provides a bit of weight and texture. When you’re ready, check out the collections at Daltile to decide on the best look for your kitchen backsplash.


Unlike tile or glass, natural stone adds warmth and texture to sleek cabinets and appliances. Something like limestone gives the room a natural, earthy feel. Or try a marble or granite for a smooth, sophisticated air. Because stone is more porous than tile, glass or metal, be sure to talk to the professionals at Porcelanosa before making your final selection.


Make your kitchen the star of your home with a conversation-starting backsplash. The shops and showrooms at the Dallas Design District are ready to make over your kitchen when you are.
