Soothing Glass Backsplash

The right backsplash can help create a spa-like environment in the bathroom. In this space, designer Andreas Charalambous chose slim glass tile in calming shades of brown and beige, complementing the wenge countertop and floating display boxes.

All-Around Tile

When designing your bathroom's backsplash, don't think you're limited to square and rectangular-shaped tiles. Tiles are available in many styles and shapes, from bold octagonal to elegant arabesque (shown here). Image courtesy of Moen Inc.
