Modern Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

Your kitchen backsplash serves to protect your walls from damage that can occur from spills, splashes, and spatters—essentially all the things that happen when you cook in your kitchen. But, a stylish, modern backsplash can serve as a focal point, a décor element that deserves as much attention during the design process as your cabinets and countertops.

Clean & Modern 

A tile backsplash in either a basic grid or running bond pattern adds the sleek touch of simple perfection. Choose a more muted color palette to let your countertops, cabinetry, and hardware have the spotlight.

Chic & Stylish

Get a little adventurous with tile and create a herringbone or chevron pattern on your backsplash. Professional installers or more advanced DIYers can even create quilt-like patterns with various tile sizes and shapes for still more visual interest. Or take it a step further and use patterned tiles or a complementary quartz design that is sure to make your kitchen backsplash stand out. You can achieve both beauty and continuity with a full-height kitchen backsplash in the same Cambria quartz surface you select for your countertops. This option also delivers higher function without grout lines that attract grime and need to be regularly sealed. Instead, Cambria is a maintenance-free, stain- and scratch-resistant material that makes a stunning focal point in your kitchen. Plus, Cambria’s expansive design palette means you’ll get exactly what you want—whether that’s a perfect match with your countertop or a daring contrast.
