Ceramic Surroundings

Ceramic subway tiles are decorative and durable, making it a great backdrop for a cooking range. Designer Rebekah Zaveloff used a ceramic white tile backsplash to carry through the monochromatic theme in this all-white kitchen.

A Good Mix

Mixing different materials in a backsplash creates a one-of-a-kind design. Designer Helen Richardson used light green tumble marble for the majority of the backsplash and added diamond-shaped stainless steel accent tiles to give it an unexpected shine.

Bright and Fun

Take a risk when choosing a backsplash color to create a fun space the whole family can enjoy. Once you decide on a color, carry it throughout the kitchen with accessories like these green apples.

Dramatic Blue

Blue glass tiles make a dramatic statement in any style kitchen. Designer Dave Stimmel installed the tile along the length of the cabinets and the wet bar area to connect the two spaces.

Horizontal Harmony

Adding tile to your backsplash can get pricey. HGTV fan LaylaPalmer designed a classic look without the price with a beadboard backsplash.

The Main Attraction

A backsplash can often be the focal point of a kitchen. Designer Gail Drury had this in mind when she designed this intricate tile backsplash framed by the stone hood.
