If you wanna add a texture and a unique touch to the space, go for a textural wooden backsplash. It can be a backsplash of reclaimed or aged wood, just some vertical or horizontal wood planks or just some wood clad in a pattern, for example, chevron. You may go for such a look not only for rustic, chalet, vintage and shabby chic kitchens but also for many others, too. Rock a modern kitchen with such a backsplash for a contrast.
Speaking about kitchen backsplashes, stone is a chic alternative to bricks, it’s natural, a bit rough-looking but very stylish due to these imperfections. Stone, rocks from your garden, pebbles, marble – the possibilities are endless, and you’ll find a proper backsplash for any kitchen style. Rustic, glam, modern, industrial, vintage – any kitchen will fit a stone backsplash. There are various color of stone to try, you may mix several or if these are pebbles, whitewash them.
A window backsplash is always a catchy option, if you have amazing views or if you have a private garden or courtyard. Grow much greenery to refresh the kitchen and make it look more vivacious, it’s especially cool for a contemporary or minimalist monochromatic space.
You may go for the wood in some similar color as copper and get a cozy warm-colored kitchen or create a contrasting look with bold cabinetry and a copper backsplash. A shiny copper piece will spruce up any space and add a bit of glam and chic, and if you light up the backsplash, it will reflect it and look even more attractive. Metal copper backsplashes are very functional, easy to maintain and look cool – they add a shiny or textural feel to the kitchen.
