5 beautiful kitchen backsplash ideas

By: Elaine Song
When it comes to renovating your kitchen, adding a backsplash can be an inexpensive way to create instant drama. It’s the perfect place to play around with tiles, colour and pattern. And is a small enough area that you can install that gorgeous Calacatta marble slab without breaking your renovation budget. These five beautiful kitchens showcase a variety of backsplash ideas, from traditional to modern and neutral to colourful. Which one would YOU love to install in your kitchen?

And who doesn't love a herringbone design?  See the rest of this kitchen here.   [caption id="attachment_29249" align="aligncenter" width="460"] { Photography by Virginia Macdonald } { Photography by Virginia Macdonald }[/caption] 4 Glass mosaic Even just a small area covered in glass mosaic tiles can make a big impact. The colours and design in this backsplash was meant to, "create an effect reminiscent of an evening gown and jewellery".  See the rest of this kitchen here.   [caption id="attachment_29250" align="aligncenter" width="460"] { Photography by Donna Griffith } { Photography by Donna Griffith }[/caption] 5 Back-painted glass For a super sleek look, turquoise walls covered with clear glass panels leave this space looking clean and uncluttered.  See the rest of this kitchen here.   Which backsplash is YOUR favourite?
