Backsplash Trends For Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling Project

June 7, 2017

Many homeowners spend a lot of time choosing the right countertops or cabinets for their kitchen remodeling projects, but then forget about the backsplash until the last minute. A backsplash can add color, texture, and character to a kitchen, so it’s important to choose the right one if you plan on remodeling. Ready to get inspired? Take a look at these backsplash trends:


Do you want to make your kitchen feel warm and rustic? If so, you may want to consider adding a wood-inspired backsplash. Real wood is not a great choice for the backsplash, but luckily there are durable tiles that look just like the real thing. This type of tile works well when it’s paired with solid white or light-colored cabinets.


Have you fallen in love with the all-white kitchen trend? If you have white cabinets, countertops, and flooring, there’s no better way to accent this look than with a mirrored backsplash. Small, mirrored tiles will make the white in your kitchen stand out and make your kitchen look more unique. If you don’t have an all-white kitchen, you can still make this trend work for you. In fact, mirrored backsplashes are perfect for brightening and opening up small kitchens.

Subway Tile

Subway tiles have been popular for decades, so if you want to choose to a backsplash that will stand the test of time, this is probably your best option. Using subway tiles as a backsplash gives your kitchen a clean, finished look that will still look stylish years from now. But, if the thought of using classic subway tiles seems boring to you, there are ways that you can modernize the look. For example, you can lay the subway tiles diagonally instead of in horizontal rows for a fresh twist on this classic trend. See 11 twists on a subway tile backsplash.


If you want to add a splash of metallic to your kitchen, consider adding a backsplash made out of tin. Homeowners used to use tin to decorate ceilings, but it’s now making its way to kitchen backsplashes instead. The best part? Tin may look upscale and luxurious, but it’s actually fairly inexpensive. This is a great choice if you’ve come to the end of your remodeling project and don’t have much room left in your budget.


Search for a ceramic tile that is made to look just like exposed brick if you want to make your kitchen edgier. This type of backsplash works well in all types of kitchens, especially those that have a fairly neutral color scheme. Brick tiles can even make your kitchen appear larger if you run them all the way up to the ceiling.
