Kitchen Backsplash Materials

Are you dreaming of installing a kitchen backsplash in your Carmel home? There are myriad materials to be utilized and the statement a well-designed backsplash makes in your kitchen is an impactful one. On the functional side, a kitchen backsplash makes it much easier to clean when “you know who” has been goofing around in the kitchen with that world famous chili recipe. When you are ready to install a beautiful new kitchen backsplash, the folks at Handyman Connection of Carmel are ready as well. Until that time arrives, let’s go over some of the materials that can be used to create a gorgeous new kitchen backsplash.

Tile is undoubtedly the most popular material when it comes to kitchen backsplashes. It’s no wonder, with the variety of tiles available to consumers today. Clean, classic, white subway tiles always make a statement, but when paired with a colored grout, the statement gets turned up a bit.

Stainless steel backsplashes are a great choice for the culinary artist who dreams of cooking in a professional setting. This material is very durable and easy to clean.

Mirror tiles are an unconventional choice, but look amazing once installed. These tiles can open up a smaller kitchen. They reflect light and when paired with a white marble countertop, deliver chic elegance that you may not have thought possible in your kitchen.

Reclaimed wood planks look incredible when paired with stainless steel, wall shelves and coordinating appliances. The warmth of the reclaimed wood is a perfect accent to the cool, utilitarian finish of the steel.

Think outside the bag…the coffee bag, that is. Coffee beans suspended in clear epoxy have been used to create a budget-friendly, eye-catching conversation starter on this wall.

Tin sheets are another budget-friendly option that are trending lately. This look delivers lots of visual impact for little investment.

Chalkboard paint on a backsplash makes for a fun visual statement, and it’s a pretty useful place to write down recipe notes.

The possibilities for a unique, visually impactful kitchen backsplash are endless. Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, so why not feature a creative backsplash design?
