Choosing a kitchen backsplash is a BIG task. The right backsplash can completely redefine your kitchen’s aesthetic for the better, but with so many options it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. In fact, some people even end up opting out of a kitchen backsplash — DON’T DO IT! We can help.

We’ve rounded up five kitchen backsplash tiles that we think would fit well in any space. Read on to see the whole list — you won’t be disappointed.

A backsplash often ends up being one of the focal points of a kitchen, so it’s a major decision. Whether you’re working with a designer or going the DIY route, there are endless tile options to choose from for your dream kitchen.

We’ve said it before, but we like to think of your backsplash as the jewelry of your space — it’s the detail that maybe isn’t as noticeable at first glance, but it certainly enhances the overall look of your kitchen.

Not only does a backsplash add character, but it also has a function of its own! Backsplash tiles can be a saving grace to your kitchen walls when it comes to all the cooking (especially the occasional cooking disaster) and general wear of, well, life!

Besides serving a functional purpose, a backsplash adds abundant aesthetic appeal to your kitchen.

A few other things to consider when choosing a backsplash are:

• Tile that will go well with your cabinetry
• Tile that pairs best with your flooring
• Tile that looks best with your countertops
• Tile that’s within your budget

Timeless and Elegant Kitchen Backsplash

We know, we know. Everyone has a white kitchen backsplash. But there’s a good reason for it! White backsplashes often give off the most timeless vibe with their clean, elegant appearance. Plus, white backsplashes really do stand the test of time and offer an interchangeable look should you ever consider painting the cabinets a different color or selling your home.

We love this tile due to the variation of bold whites (yes, neutrals can be bold!). The sheen gives off an uneven surface texture from piece to piece for a more artisanal-style design. We’re loving it!

Want to go bold?

The options are endless! Choose a dark, dramatic tile such as this to give the ultimate luxe feel. We suggest pairing it with white cabinetry for the most gorgeous contrast. Yes, please!

Considering going bold but not feeling the dark colors? Mix things up with a unique shape such as this tile! Or this one — the perfect combination of the two. We love these tile options because you can remain neutral while still adding a twist. Always safe, right?

We promise, adding a backsplash in your kitchen is SO worth it. It’s one choice you won’t regret.
