How to Choose Your Kitchen Backsplash

So you’re in the market for a new kitchen backsplash but you don’t know where to start?

In this article, we’ll discuss some of the key considerations you need to make when choosing the right kitchen backsplash for your home, including size, materials, colours and more. We’ll also advise where you can go for assistance with choosing a kitchen backsplash that will suit your kitchen.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Kitchen Backsplash

Here we’ll discuss the factors you should consider when choosing your kitchen backsplash.


Size is one of the most important things you need to consider when choosing the kitchen backsplash, as it goes a long way to deciding the type of backsplash you can choose.

You can choose to have a small backsplash that runs behind your stovetop, or, if you want a more impactful design, something that goes up the entire wall. It all depends on size.

Colour & Patterns

Kitchen splashbacks can be a great way to add another colour or patterns into your space. But the options are endless, really. Certain trends indicate that you should try and tone your backsplash colour with that of your countertop. Others suggest that having a splashback that contrasts is the better choice.

As we said, the sky’s the limit.


Just as your options for colour are endless so too are the types of material you can choose from. Stainless steel is a popular solution for those wanting a more modern design, but tile can also be a great choice if you want something more homey.

When choosing the kitchen backsplash’s material, you should also consider its function. Most kitchen backsplashes are in place as a safeguard against spills and splashes.

This means you should look for a material that is well-suited to high-impact environments, as well as one that’s aesthetically pleasing.


If you’re referring to a particular theme or trend in your kitchen design, you should make sure that your kitchen backsplash ties into said theme. Alternatively, if you want to bring other elements of your home into the kitchen, the backsplash can be a great way to make such references.


How your kitchen backsplash is installed is a key consideration, particularly if you’re attempting to install it yourself.

When choosing the right kitchen backsplash to meet your needs, make sure you are familiar and comfortable with the installation process, or are able to hire someone to perform the installation for you.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Cleaning and maintenance isn’t always your top priority when designing your kitchen backsplash, but it could be one of the most important considerations you make.

The last thing you want to do after installing your new kitchen backsplash is be cleaning it all the time. Choose something that is fairly easy to clean and maintain to avoid the hassle.
