Favorite Backsplash Trends

When you’re renovating your kitchen one way to make a big statement is through your backsplash. Gone are the days of 4” x 4” tiles decorated with fruits and vegetables. There are so many different options for backsplash that will give your kitchen a modern look, a rustic look, industrial look, or anywhere in between. Today, we are going to run down our current top three favorites in backsplash trends.

Subway Tile

Subway tiles have quickly become a kitchen backsplash classic. Using subway tile in your kitchen, or anywhere in your house, offers a clean and stylish look that goes well with any decor. In addition, subway tile is renowned for being extremely easy to clean.

The most common size for subway tiles is 3” x 6”, but nowadays people have been switching it up creating different kinds of looks with subway tiles. You can purchase larger than average subway tiles at 4” x 8” or even 4” x 12”. The larger size could give a smaller kitchen the illusion of more space. Subway tile is timeless and no matter what direction you choose, you can’t go wrong.

Hand Cut Tiles

There are many options for your backsplash, but one of our current favorites are hand-cut tiles. Hand-cut tiles are available in any shape, color, and style and add more personality to your kitchen than just a typical subway tile or small square tile. One of our personal favorites is the hand-cut subway tile, but you can get a hand-cut version of virtually any tile.

If you are leaning towards a simple backsplash, but are looking for something with a little more to it, using hand-cut tiles is a great option to add a little more personality. Perfect in any kitchen, we love the way these tiles make your kitchen feel warm and welcoming.
