Posted By: Eva Times Read: 208

We search on Internet a lot for beautiful kitchen ideas. When we get inspired by the ideas, we try to design our kitchen most extravagantly following those ideas. But after we are done with our counter tops, cabinets, floors, doors and windows, the only thing we miss out is the back splash. Back splash is the final touch in a kitchen design and helps you to merge different ideas together in order to get a beautiful and functional kitchen.

Some people do not know what is a back splash

The beautiful blue printed part above the counter top and below the cabinets is known as back splash. This is the space which is less talked about while talking about the kitchen design.

Here are few things that you must consider while choosing the back splash for your kitchen:


The material that you select for the back splash will actually help you set the style and design of your kitchen. What type of kitchen do you like? If it is a rustic kitchen, then below is a beautiful image describing it. Rustic kitchens look more elegant and gorgeous. Glossy and sleek looks are good but for kitchens, a worn out look is better. You can mix and match the tiles and the cabinets. You can go to rustic tiles and stained cabinets or you can choose painted cabinets having a glazed finish. Whatever material you choose for your back splash, you must always select the one that compliments your kitchen design.


Color is the other important factor that you must choose rightly for your back splash. In most of the homes, it has been seen that they use the pop colors or might keep it neutral for the back splash. The truth is, for many years it has been a fashion to keep the back splash neutral. It is good to keep it clean and consistent but there is nothing wrong in adding some colors to it. Actually people fear to add colors, thinking how it will go with the design of their kitchen. But there is nothing wrong in mix match and experiment. If you fear to experiment with colors, consult the professionals and choose the right color for the back splash of your kitchen that will compliment it.

Counter tops:

After the cabinets, the counter tops are the 2nd big decision to be taken in kitchen designing. The back splash must be friendly with the counter top. The messier and busier your counter top is, the more calmer and soothing your back splash will be and vice versa. If you have a boring counter top, then mix it up with a colorful back splash. These tricks add life to your kitchen.


Whenever you think of renovating your kitchen or home, the most important factor that you dare not to neglect is budget. As back splash covers a small area, you might think it won't effect the budget much. But you would be wrong if you think so. Back splash effects the budget and drains out a lot of money if it is not chosen carefully. When you design your back splash, you must do it exactly according to your kitchen requirements so that it doesn't drain out your hard earned money in a unplanned manner.

A Final Takeaway:

After reading this article, you might have got an idea as how you should design your kitchen back splash. But if you face some difficulties in selecting colors or adjusting the budget, you should consult a professional. A professional will guide you rightly and give your kitchen a brand new look it deserves.
