1. Glass Subway Tile Backsplash

A glass subway tile backsplash fits with virtually any design style, and the possibilities are endless. You can go with a classic white color like in the Stockton home model, or you can add some color, like with the blue tile backsplash in the 1714 Heritage model. You could even decide to do small tile accents above the stove, or cover your entire kitchen wall and range hood for a more dramatic effect.

2. Tin Backsplash Tile

Tin backsplash tile brings a one-of-a-kind style whether you have a neutral kitchen, like in the 1440 Carolina Belle model, or a colorful one. It also adds a cohesive feel if you have stainless steel appliances. It’s an easy way to change out and transform the entire look of your kitchen, and you can often find the tile as a peel-and-stick option at your local hardware store. Plus, it works great behind a stove because it easily wipes clean.

3. Shiplap Backsplash

Make your farmhouse dreams come true with a shiplap backsplash to really tie your kitchen’s rustic features together, like in the Island Breeze model. If you go with this option, we recommend painting the shiplap in an oil-based paint, then with a coat of oil-based sealer to make it easier to clean, especially behind the stove.

4. Mosaic Tile Backsplash

If you want to bring some flair to your kitchen, a mosaic tile backsplash is the perfect addition. We love it as an accent behind the stove, like in The Belle home model. You can pick a color palette that fits your kitchen’s aesthetic and use a peel-and-stick option for easy installation.

5. Continued Countertop Backsplash

For a more streamlined look, you can have your countertop continue up the wall as a backsplash. This gives your kitchen a more spacious feel while also making the countertop look larger. In The Cascade home model, the marble countertop extends up the wall for an elegant touch that really stands out.

6. Ceramic Tile Backsplash

For a completely customized look, try a ceramic tile backsplash like in The Kimmel home model. You can pick the colors and patterns that fit your kitchen the best, and you can even choose the color of the caulk to enhance the ceramic tiles’ designs. For that reason, this type of backsplash pairs well with any type of cabinetry and countertop.
