Backsplashes in a home are becoming increasingly desired and are very popular right now. Not only do they add visual interest in your kitchen, but they can add plenty of personality, too!

The key to creating a space that will  stand out, yet still be timeless, is to define your theme in the kitchen (or perhaps your entire home). We suggest browsing for inspiration on sites like Pinterest. Then, research the materials that will be best for your project.

Many homeowners choose not to cover the entire wall with the backsplash; some choose to cover only the portion that will actually get “splashed” while cooking or cleaning, making sure to cover only between 25%-75% of the wall’s surface.

You might not always get what you’re looking for when buying a home, but the possibilities are endless once you start adding your own unique style in each room, like with a beautiful backsplash in the kitchen.

Take a peek at some very chic backsplashes in these homes to get inspired!
