Backsplashes may seem like a small project, but they can actually have a huge impact on your space. You’ve come to the right place to research and brainstorm backsplash tile ideas before you put grout to tile. Here are the top 6 things to consider for your backsplash project in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry/mud room.

Before you begin your backsplash adventure, it is imperative to determine your budget. This will help you decide on the amount and type of tiles you are able to buy. Standard field sizes will help keep your price down, while unique mosaics can have higher price tags.

Tile material in a backsplash largely contributes to the overall design and style of your space. Sleek matte, metallic, or glossy help achieve a luxe look, while brick or textured stone is best for rustic spaces. Deco and three-dimentional tiles can also add a lot of character to your backsplash.
This bathroom backsplash is combo of our Imperial 2.5x10 glass tile in Princess and Dutchess. This glass tile has a metallic, mirrored backing that adds light, drama and shine to any space.
This backsplash in Grace 4x12 Sabbia has a glossy finish, giving it a polished and refined look.
A good way to bring in a decorative tile is above the stove. Designer Marissa Cramer chose our Remy 8x8 cement tile in Soffia
If you’re planning on keeping the design for a long time, we suggest sticking with a classic field tile size (such as a 3"x6" in a subway tile layout), which is timeless and always in fashion. However, if you want to add your own personality to your space, consider something beyond the square and rectangle. Hexagon, conche/wave or chevron shapes add unique style while still being traditional shapes. Using our backsplash tile search filter, you can search based on tile shape or mosaic shape.

Light colors can make a room appear bigger, while darker colors can add a cozy feel to your space. If opting for dark tiles, ensure your room has plenty of natural or electric light to balance it out. Neutrals can often have just as much of an impact on your space as bold colors.

Depending on your budget and overall vision for your space, you have several options for your backsplash. Often, the tiles will be installed from the countertop up to the cabinets or shelves. If you’re looking to create more of a statement feature, you can tile the wall above the sink all the way up to the ceiling.

Instead of tiling the whole wall, consider going half way up the wall and adding open shelving above. Seen here is our Costa Allegra 3x6 ceramic wall tile in White Sand | Designer: @signe_lauren
Since the backsplash won’t be on an isolated wall, you should keep the holistic design of the room in mind. Your tiles should be compatible with your countertops and cabinets/shelves, and any other fixtures that share a wall with your tile design.
