backsplash trends

Today, we are talking about the most used room in your home- the kitchen. A great way to renovate when you don’t want to replace your countertops is to add a new backsplash.  Over at House Beautiful, they offered some of the best kitchen backsplashes trending in 2017.

10Crackled Ceramic Tile

Subway tiles are still very popular but now subway tiles with a crackled texture as featured here in this kitchen are on the rise.

9Blue and White Tile

Blue and White color combination is trending in home decor so it’s no surprise that we are now seeing more blue elements in the kitchen.

8Gold Marble

Marble tile in the kitchen and bathrooms has been trending for the last few years. Now instead of white marble, you will see more of the Calacatta Gold marble subway tile for a dynamic backdrop.

7Dark Grout

In keeping with the subway tiles, homeowners are now opting for darker grout. The white subway tile is easier to maintain with the darker grout.

6Ceiling Height

Instead of a typical backsplash, now homeowners are choosing to continue the tile all up to the ceiling.

5Gray Dominates

As the gray color trend continues, gray carries over into the backsplash. Instead of a straight tile design, homeowners are choosing more of a herringbone design.

4Variation on Subway Tile

Instead of a traditional subway tile, you will see more tile that appears brick-like. A longer and leaner version of the subway tile but will mimic the look of brick.


Natural stones such as Limestone has been a popular choice for a homeowner for its longevity in style and durability.

2Bring the Beach Home

Pale green and pale blue hues that mimic the color of the ocean have become popular as kitchen backsplashes. Both colors are soothing and work well with gray hues.

1Metallic Finish

A twist on the tradition tile is to add a subway tile but in a metallic finish. Again, home decor is taking a nod from fashion as metallics are trending for spring.
