20 Stylish Backsplash Tile Ideas For a Dream Kitchen

The backsplash in the kitchen is what ties the bottom half and the top half of the room together to give it a cohesive look. The space above the counter and below the cabinets is the middle of the room’s vertical space and the eye sees it as a dividing line. The eye is naturally drawn to the location so it’s a perfect spot to use to place your kitchen’s WOW factor. The spot is not called a ‘backsplash’ for no reason, the vertical area will receive a lot of splashes from everyday food preparation, so it needs to be covered with not only material that looks good, but that is also easy to clean. Kitchen wall tiles are the perfect backsplash material, it’s versatile, colorful and durable. Check out these 20 stylish backsplash tile ideas to be inspired to create your own dream kitchen.
