Backsplash For Kitchen Walls

If you don’t want to harvest new wood for your backsplash project, you can take your cue from Karen Swanson of New England Design Works, who had her contractor rip sheets of found plywood into 6-inch-wide planks, and install them 3/8″ apart on the walls of this kitchen. This resourceful backsplash — a modern interpretation of shiplap paneling, Swanson explains — is painted with Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo paint, which makes it stand up well in a kitchen. “Painted plywood is not as ‘bullet proof’ as some other backsplash choices one could make,” Swanson concedes. “I would suggest wiping up spills quickly and not allowing standing water next to this — but then again, I also suggest that with a tile and grouted backsplash.”

Although the most common use of these river rock pebbles is actually shower floors, photo stylist Chris Walker and her husband came up with the idea of using them as a kitchen backsplash. They asked their kitchen designer John Petrie, CMKBD, president elect of the National Kitchen and Bath Association, to install it on the walls. “The one-of-a-kind, free-flowing edges of the pebbles not only mimic the flow of soft teal veins in the dark green soapstone countertops,” says Walker, “but also balance the vertical lines of the Shaker-style cabinet doors.” Lesson learned: when you’re shopping for backsplash materials, ask the vendor to show you floor tiles, as well. While not every product will adapt well to vertical application, you may hit upon an unusual — and easily implemented — idea.

Beautiful, inexpensive backsplash Rating: I used this as the backsplash for the countertop areas that do not get wet. It was much cheaper than tile, yet looks stunning. I will be finishing the area behind the sink with a copper glass tile that matches perfectly with this product. I recommend you use A LOT of the tape that is included. I've had this backsplash for a year and a half and it still looks perfect. Also, very easy to wipe off any splatter. show more

This contemporary kitchen takes a sophisticated approach to a penny-tile backsplash. Round metallic tiles pop against black walls, black door, cabinets and shiny black countertop. The hanging lights echo the backsplash’s geometric design.

“The backsplash is the blank canvas of the kitchen,” says John Ryba, who designed this unique aquarium-inspired backsplash with three-dimensional glass fish and bubbles. “It’s an opportunity to add color, function and harmony to the overall design.”

If you think all work and no play can make a backsplash dull, there are plenty of ways to bring a light touch into a hardworking kitchen. Here, a backsplash painted with chalkboard paint allows homeowners to keep a recipe handy, write family reminders, or just doodle. The best part? When they want to change the message — or clean things up — they just wipe the chalkboard clean.

Another gorgeous mixed-media backsplash: Here, glass is mixed with today’s popular natural stone. To ensure that this kitchen by Remodelworks looked distinctive, the client installed glass tile behind the range to accent the 4×4 tumbled stone tile that makes up most of the backsplash. Then, interior designer Dixie Lovejoy came up with the idea of turning the tile vertically, so that it looks like a waterfall or rising steam.

If the thought of using familiar materials in a new way appeals to you, consider industrial steel. As part of the contemporary/industrial look designer Tom Lutz, AKBD, was asked to create for a client’s kitchen, he installed a backsplash of 20-gauge stainless steel — the same material used in restaurants and hospitals. Using the steel as a backsplash rather than a horizontal counter surface, Lutz notes, makes it less likely to become scratched (although the material will still develop some wear and tear over time, especially if ceramic-bottom pots repeatedly rub against it.) To keep the steel from separating from the wall behind it or damaging the adjacent cabinets, Lutz cut the metal larger than needed and tucked the margins behind them.

Like steel, wood is a familiar material than can be made to look entirely fresh in a backsplash application. The sugar maple wood of this backsplash by Susan Fredman was harvested right on the property of this beach house in Michigan. “I really prefer to use only wood that can be grown where it resides,” Fredman says.

Beach house kitchens needn’t be blue and green, of course. Heather Pond, CMKBD, chose this paintable ‘Dune’ backsplash by Modular Arts for her own family’s cottage on Cape Cod — and decided to keep the panels white. In addition to referencing the seashore vibe of the surroundings, the white backsplash creates dramatic shadows at night, when the cabinet lights shine upon their textured surface.

This textured, rustic backsplash makes it look as if this kitchen by Hamilton-Gray Design is fully constructed of stone. But, in fact, the quartzite material actually comes in pieces that are applied just like tile, making it a viable choice even in a home with plaster or sheetrock walls.

From traditional tile to trendy glass — and shiny metal to rustic wood — there is seemingly no end of choices for kitchen backsplashes today. “Tile is still the most popular backsplash material, with natural stone a fast-growing second,” says John Morgan, 2013 National President of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. “But with the right installer, you can make just about any material work.”

In this kitchen, the mix of materials was created not by a tile manufacturer, but by the designer. Brigitte Fabri, CMKBD, of Drury Designs, wanted to create a “castle wall” effect in this kitchen, without detracting from the room’s focal point — the copper hood. For most of the backsplash, she chose a large scale 12×24 ‘Crema Marfil’ limestone because the larger the tile, the fewer distracting grout lines, she explains. And behind the range, she used a honed glass tile called ‘Malaga Cove Wings’ by Stone & Pewter. To add the illusion of greater height to the 8-foot ceilings, Fabri brought the tile down as close to the range as she could and elongated the niche area all the way up to the hood itself.
