What makes a kitchen stand out? Depending on who you ask, you may hear that it’s the layout, cabinets, design, color palette, or even the appliances. But we like to think one of the easiest ways to make a lasting impression is with your kitchen backsplash. There are many options to choose when contemplating color palette, texture, and material. Let’s take a closer look at some on-trend backsplash ideas.

Kitchen Backsplash Ideas for 2021

One of the most popular options for a kitchen backsplash is Cloe tile. This glazed ceramic wall tile has a gloss finish. It can be found in a range of colors and shade variations. What makes Cloe tile so popular? It has a fresh and organic appearance. You can also find the tile in both rectangle and square shapes. For a neutral look, choose a white or cream shade. Want to kick things up a notch? Try jade green or a warm millennial pink.

Geometric shapes and patterns are always emerging as a major trend for kitchens in 2021 and beyond. They’re especially popular with homeowners who want to energize gray and white kitchens. Some of the top options include hexagons, herringbone, and basketweave pattern. If you want something truly one of a kind, try a hand-painted pattern!

Metal Backsplash Ideas

Metal backsplashes are another hot trend. The industrial feel and sheen will add a modern feel to your kitchen. Stainless steel is one of the more popular options for metal backsplashes. This material is highly reflective and easy to clean. Try hammered metals if you want a more crafted, artisanal look.

Looking to create a vintage feel? Try brass or copper. These materials develop a gorgeous patina over time. Copper creates more of an old-world look while brass feels masculine and cutting edge.

Stone Backsplash Ideas

Of course, we can’t forget stone backsplashes. From granite to marble, there’s something for everyone. You’ll find plenty of textures and colors with these types of backsplashes as well! Stone materials are generally the most durable and long-lasting options. If you want to create a refined, luxurious look with your kitchen remodel, stone is an excellent choice.

As a New York Times article notes, stone slab is one of the more expensive options. Ceramic tile is a more budget-friendly option. Even if you love the look of marble, you might want to save the material for another application. It’s typically the least durable of all stone tile options.
