We have 3 Gorgeous Backsplash Ideas to Inspire your Next Kitchen Remodeling Project
The kitchen backsplash came about as a means of protection from splashes of water, grease and oil for the wall behind the stove and sink.
With all that could affect the appearance of a clean kitchen, modern kitchen backsplashes need to be durable and unaffected by moisture and stains, easy to clean, and heat resistant.

The backsplash also needs to be decorative—creating a comfortable and stylish kitchen interior. Thanks to new innovations in mosaic tile development, we can now have the best of both worlds.

Kitchen Back splash Trend # 2: Large Mosaic Patterns
If you want to make a statement in your kitchen, incorporating large tiles in bold patterns for a kitchen back splash will make for an eye-catching statement without being overwhelming. Over-sized patterns can be customized to repeat, much like wallpaper.
Something to keep in mind: While it’s great to design a kitchen around your personal style, always keep in mind neutral tones and prints to aid in proper resale value.
