Here are some simple kitchen backsplash ideas to perk up your kitchen, but also not over power the kitchen with excess. The kitchen backsplash material most used is tile, but the tile you choose for the back splash can change the appearance of the kitchen.... Other materials to consider are stainless steel for a simple yet elegant look, stacked stone for a rustic look, and glass tile to add a splash of color to the kitchen decor.
So, how do you choose what material to use for your backsplash? Well... take a look at the color scheme of your kitchen, and then try to decide whether you want one that is contrasting, or complementary. There really are no rules! Below, we provide a few simple ideas for you to consider....
The tile used in the back splash below is a glossy black tile.... it gives an interesting appearance as the black is a contrast to the white in the rest of the room. This choice of color gives the kitchen an elegant appeal. The unique cook hood is an excellent addition to this kitchen design, as it helps make the black tile look even more bold!
