9 Fun Backsplash Ideas to Liven Up Your Kitchen

A backsplash is the wall immediately above your kitchen counters, stove, and sink. The main function of a backsplash is to protect the wall from splashes and spills, but there’s no reason it can’t look good while doing it! Here are some creative backsplash ideas that can take your kitchen design to the next level.

Colorful Tiles

Tile is a classic choice for a backsplash. White subway tiles are a popular go-to, but we also love the idea of using a unique color or pattern to complement your kitchen design. There are endless options to choose from!


Mirrored glass is a great option for a backsplash. It’s classy and elegant and can also give the interesting illusion of a window.

Stamped Tin

Stamped tin is available in an array of gorgeous patterns, so it can work for many different kitchen designs. Plastic tiles that have the appearance of stamped tin are widely available and a good money-saving option.

Back-painted Glass

Back-painted glass is a vibrant choice for a backsplash. We love it because you have the choice of virtually any color, and the glass gives the color incredible luster.


This is a great way to incorporate a pattern into your backsplash without using tile. You can use vinyl wallpaper by itself or regular wallpaper that’s sealed or covered with glass.


Beadboard can add some great texture to your kitchen. Paint it with your favorite color or stick with pre-treated white beadboard for a classic look. Be sure to seal it to protect from water damage.


Not only is pegboard an inexpensive option, it’s also functional! Add hooks to hold and display utensils and gadgets.

Peel and Stick Tile

We like this option because of the minimal effort and great results. Many stores sell vinyl tiles with lots of patterns to choose from. Some specialty stores even sell peel-and-stick tiles that look just like real glass or ceramic tiles!

Chalkboard Paint

This fun, unconventional choice allows you to write whatever you want on your backsplash with chalk. We like the idea of using it to display your weekly dinner menu or label the spaces where countertop appliances and items are kept.
