The Perfect Kitchen Backsplash For Your Family's Style

Your kitchen backsplash says a lot about you and your family’s style. Although there are lots of options for your backsplash, you can essentially break them up into a few categories that will achieve the look you’re going for!


The Lodge Dweller


You like rusty wall art, reclaimed wood furniture and sliding barn doors.

If the above style sounds familiar, then you love your country lifestyle and the simple charm of rustic decor. You need a textured and warm backsplash with a natural look to match the rest of your home.


  • Stone Backsplash

The organic lines, texture and differing tones pair well with the rest of your home’s decor and cabin feel that you crave.

  • Earth Tone Tile Backsplash

If stone seems a little too rustic, an elegant tile pattern with textured edges and earth tones will give you the same effect but create more of a lodge feel.

The Reformed Hippie


You like things to be a little funky, have pops of color and have uneven lines, but you don’t want things to get out of hand.

If the above style describes you, then your house says “I’m classy, but I have fun.” Your home features lots of unique patterns, colors and styles, but it all comes together neatly.


  • Mosaic Tile Backsplash

This is where random and alternating colors meet clean lines and flat texture for subtle styling that people can’t look away from.

  • Monochromatic Bright Colored Tile Backsplash
Although flat textured with clean lines, this backsplash brightens the room with an uncommon color that speaks without crazy lines or loud color patterns.



The Minimalist

You like things to look simple, clean and straight out of a lifestyle blog.

If this is your style, you regularly consult Instagram and the kitchn for styling tips. You like dark countertops and open shelving instead of cabinets.


  • White Subway Tile Backsplash

This is it. There is no second option. The flat, clean lines with perfect geometry stand as a blank slate for your cool wood and copper kitchen items to stand out.

When you get done looking for an antique farm table, you may be looking for a timeless backsplash that will endure through all trends.



  • French Country Kitchen Backsplash
