1. Ceramic / Porcelain / Glass Tiles

Because of their versatility, ceramic, porcelain and glass tiles are the most common backsplash choice. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors. While ceramic is generally the most affordable, porcelain is more dense and strong. All three are resistant to heat and moisture and clean very easy with their smooth surfaces.

2. Glass Panels

Glass panels work well as backsplashes and accent walls. They can be coated in any color on the side that touches the wall. Glass panels don’t have grout lines, so they give a smooth continuous surface that makes it both modern looking and easy to clean.

3. Natural stone slabs

Give your kitchen an elevated look by using natural stone slabs as your backsplash. Stone slabs offer unique patterns and veins. With matching stone slab countertops, your kitchen will have a dramatic look. Like glass panels, the lack of grout lines make maintenance easier.

4. Exposed Bricks

Exposed brick backsplashes gives your kitchen a rustic feel and a lot of character. Make sure you have them carefully cleaned and sealed for durability.

5. Wood & Plywood

A wood or plywood backsplash can really add to your kitchen. They will need special sealant or treatment to protect them from water and other liquids. For areas that are prone to splashing, you may want to consider using a different material.
