Backsplash Trends for 2014

Creating a customized backsplash in your kitchen is a great way to add character to a kitchen remodel project.  There are a lot of materials to consider—making a decision may seem overwhelming. To get your design ideas flowing, take a look at some of the biggest trends making a splash this year for kitchen backsplashes.

  1. Subway Tiles
    Subway tile is a classic backsplash choice. Because of its timeless appearance, this backsplash isn’t likely to go out of style. If you’re looking for a basic, yet stylish backsplash material, you can’t go wrong with white subway tile. For homeowners looking to make more of a splash with their subway tile, choose a colored option for a pop of color or use a colored grout for a more dynamic backsplash.

  1. Industrial Materials
    Are you looking to add some edge to a traditional kitchen, or are designing an industrial kitchen? If so, industrial materials like brick and stainless steel tiles are a great way to introduce the trendy industrial look into your kitchen design. These types of materials typically work best in kitchens with darker color palettes, as they bring a more dramatic, sophisticated feel to the space.
  1. Mini-Mosaics
    The easiest way to add some excitement or a bold pop of color to your kitchen is through brightly colored mini-mosaic tiles. Multi-colored tiles are also a great way to tie together the colors found in your cabinetry and countertops. This playful option offers a variety of different hues to choose from, allowing you to customize your backsplash in a way that fits your style and kitchen design.

  1. Shimmer
    If a kitchen feels drab or muted, a great way to jazz up your color palette is with some sophisticated shimmer in the backsplash. Glass and metal tiles pick up on the metal finishes of stainless steel appliances and metal fixtures. Backsplashes with a little extra shimmer also make kitchen spaces feel modern and updated.
  1. Patterns
    Patterned tiles act as a focal point in the kitchen, adding a small piece of art to your kitchen design. Tiles with patterns on them also make it easy to add color and dimension to the kitchen. Choose a tile that you love—with a pattern, color and shape that you find interesting and fun.
