Today’s backsplashes are aesthetic and functional

It wasn’t so long ago that a backsplash installation consisted of about six inches behind the range or sink. The purpose was mainly functional, to make cleaning easier and to collect water splashes. Now they are as aesthetic as they are functional.

Backsplash trends to consider

While backsplashes can be created from a myriad of materials, the most popular is still tile. It comes in numerous colors, designs, patterns, shapes, and sizes. Whether porcelain or ceramic, it can be made to look like anything; some popular tile options are stone, brick, metallics, leather, fabric, and more.

One popular trend is the floor-to-ceiling backsplash, as more and more homeowners are doing away with wall cabinetry. Ceiling-height backsplashes highlight a single area of the kitchen and create a focal point. Higher backsplashes will unite all aspects of the space, and brighten it up with their reflective quality.
Bold, oversized patterns pack a punch and homeowners just don't want plain anymore. Even subway tiles, the formerly all-white 3 X 6 rectangles now come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. With the advent of modern technology like Inkjet, intricate patterns, like wood, chevron, herringbone, Moroccan fish scale, and more, are available.

Just be sure whatever you choose isn't overly patterned and doesn't clutter the kitchen. Also, nothing needs to be a perfect match, but it does all need to coordinate. Textures are big this year and, thanks to Inkjet technology, we can get tiles that appear sculpted, stenciled, striated, shadowed, polished, and more.
