A kitchen can look completed without a backsplash, and in some cases a clean coat of (cleanable) paint is exactly what best implements a design. However at the same time, there's also a possibility to use the space to secure the total design of the room. While countertops, flooring and cabinets are normally puts to keep it straightforward, the backsplash is a great place to infuse some personal style, whether that's with a mosaic feature or a bold color. And because that wall essentially links the countertops with the cabinets it's also a place to link whatever with each other. Do you truly need a one? Not truly. Yet you'll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or cleaning recipes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes less complicated to wipe up, specifically if your cooktop doesn't have a one constructed in. And almost any type of material can work-- from bamboo to corkboard-- as long as it's properly secured.
Whether you're renovating your entire or kitchen or simply wanting to freshen the space, we've narrowed down a few different kitchen backsplash ideas. Provided the many shapes, dimensions and colors available, ceramic tile is probably the most functional choice (it's also confirmed to be ageless). There's plenty of room to have fun with patterns while still keeping clean lines: pile tiles in columns, stagger them, or lay them at an angle. A lot of tile requires minimal maintenance, just make certain to seal the cement so it doesn't obtain stained or absorb water.
