Thinking about adding a new backsplash to your kitchen to revamp your current, outdated design? Here are some ideas to inspire your next kitchen renovation project!

10 Examples of Kitchen Ceramic Tile Backsplashes

 

1- A dark green backsplash for a striking contrast

This dark green ceramic backsplash has several aesthetic advantages. At first glance, it contrasts nicely with the white base cabinets, as well as with the very light wooden shelves.

Also, its angular pattern sure is eye-catching! All elements combined, it's a very elegant result, which greatly benefits from the gold-coloured fixtures and handles.

Check out Heath Ceramics to find a tile model that looks more like the shape shown above. However, it may be more difficult to have delivered in Canada.

2- Or a pretty dark blue backsplash

Once again, a dark-coloured backsplash is used to create a contrast with the white kitchen cabinets. As shown above, this type of design hits the nail on the head at every turn. Choosing such a dark blue backsplash certainly gives a lot of depth to the decor and proves to be an option that pleases the masses!

3- A sober design for a refined look

Who said white is boring? This certainly proves otherwise! Not only does this white backsplash highlight the black kitchen cabinets, but the finesse of its design is just as noteworthy. The result is remarkably elegant, in addition to being perfectly integrated within this sober decor.

4- A classic making a comeback!

This pattern is very reminiscent of the tiled backsplashes in old, vintage kitchens. In this rustic-looking kitchen, choosing this specific tile was definitely not made at random! This new take on a classic is making a comeback and is sure to charm the sentimental ones.

5- A re-imagined floral design!

If you're likely to choose round, square or rectangular shapes when designing your kitchen backsplash, know that you could also opt for a flower-like pattern. The decision to opt for a glossy finish on this backsplash is certainly aesthetically pleasing.

6- A metal-like backsplash for a stunning design

This design will clearly leave no one feeling indifferent! The metal-like backsplash is perfect to reflect the natural light seeping into the kitchen. Naturally, this is a bold design! Nonetheless, it dresses the room and requires very little in the way of additional items to bring this beautiful setting to life!

7- Several pretty shades of light green for a classic look

With a more classic look, this type of backsplash showcases several shades of green. This unusual aesthetic choice differs from that of solid colours. As for the tiles, it's nice to see something other than the traditional square or rectangular ones!

8- A beautiful, glossy light blue backsplash

This light blue ceramic tile backsplash is anything but boring! Not only does it showcase a beautiful colour, but it also has two completely different patterns.

The juxtaposition of the round tiles with the other tile model featured for the whole is, visually, very interesting, and frankly, downright original. Also, the tile's glossy finish adds to the overall charm of the backsplash and allows light to be reflected off the tiles.

9- Another tribute to metal-like tiles!

As a follow-up to the previous metal-like ceramic tile backsplash, here's another version of this type of design. This one has a golden hue in certain areas which fades into a bronze shade at various ends.

This backsplash is probably the most remarkable of all, albeit it'll surely fit better in a classicly decorated kitchen than in a modern setting. For a winning look, avoid overloading the kitchen with decorative items, as this backsplash definitely has everything it takes to impress friends and family!

10- A bold design

Although squares aren't in themselves an original picking, that of a 3D illusion certainly is. What's more, the design showcases a variety of colours, which helps convey the impression that the shapes are literally jumping off the wall. Lastly, the backsplash's uneven surface is just as bold!
