What do you like in a backsplash? Stacked stone, stacked tile, tile, granite? Talk to me. I can use the distraction right now ;).

Kitchen Backsplash: But will I still love you in the morning?
February 28, 2010
I thought I would share with you my kitchen backsplash inspiration file. Not that we have money for a backsplash right now, but a girl can always dream. When I asked for kitchen paint color opinions, my friend Chris was the only one that said, “Here’s what I’m thinking for your paint color…backsplash.” Love her. It’s a true friend that will answer your question with one you didn’t even ask!
I love the look of a backsplash. I would love to have one. But one problem…it is such a commitment! You cannot easily switch out a backsplash when you tire of it, and I am so very fickle.
(Disclaimer: I am so sorry that these pics don’t have image links to them. Naughty, naughty me. I didn’t save them all and am too exhausted to hunt them down. Forgive the bad blogger etiquette.)
So, let’s explore some backsplash options together shall we?
I am a fan. I love this look and it makes me really, really wish that I would have pushed for halogen lighting under the cabinets.
The stacked stone feels homey and organic to me without looking “decorated”.
Stacked tile is nice too, but has a more decorated and ornate look. I worry that if I went this route it would be more like a fling. Not sure I’d still love it in the morning. Sorry stacked tile.
I like this look a lot. The medallions on the tile are a nice touch.
This looks beautiful as well, but again, not sure I could marry it. Just dinner and a movie with a kiss goodnight perhaps :).
This kitchen reminds me of my own with the black granite countertops and maple cabinets. I do not like the granite as a backsplash. It is too dark for the look I’m going for.
I love this look below. It makes me want to go paint some of my cabinets black!
I am sort of surprised that I don’t like this at all. Slate tile usually appeals to me, but not here.
Nope. I wouldn’t even give my number out to this one. I don’t like it.
Oooo, I like this one a lot. I think I would like it even better without the medallions. The lighter color appeals to me too.
Hmmmm, I like this too, but I think I’d get sick of the diamond tile border.
Going with a bigger tile is cost effective, but I don’t like the look. This one below isn’t doing anything for me.
This is simple. I like it.
I’m not crazy about the black diamonds below. I would be tempted to do the exact same thing to try and pull my black granite into the mix, but I don’t think it was necessary. I would like it better without them.
This looks modern and I like it.
Wow. There is a lot going on here and I don’t think I like it. The basketweave tile is beautiful, but this looks too busy to me.
This is nice. I think the lighter backsplash is calling my name in the future!
