Backsplashes aren't just to protect walls from spills and splatters, they can be the most striking element of a kitchen or bathroom's design. Check out these 15 designer backsplashes that wow from the moment you walk in the room. 

Dimensional

The appearance of 3-dimensional tiles has changed the face of tiled surfaces, with embossed or molded patterns that make walls pop. They add drama to a space and naturally attract attention. To add to their impact, consider placing lighting at the top of the wall to help define all the angles and shadows of the tile's dimensions.

Glass

Available in an endless array of attention-grabbing colors and transparencies, glass tiles are a perfect option for making a bold design statement in an otherwise utilitarian space. It also has the special ability to shimmer and sparkle, which bounces light around a room to visually expand the space.

Shapes

Whether geometric shapes are used loudly in a room or in a subtle way, they greatly impact the mood, tone and texture of your space. Simple shapes, like circles, chevrons, arabesque and diamonds, are incredibly versatile and will liven up your space and can even make it seem bigger than it actually is.
