The backsplash may be a functional element of your kitchen design, but it’s also a spot that allows for creative freedom and a chance to showcase your personal style. While we love traditional picks like subway tile and glass mosaics, there are a ton of other options when choosing tile for a kitchen backsplash that are more unique and stylish. Take a design risk that is sure to pay off with one of these stylish tile picks.
If you see Kelly Wearstler’s name on it, you know it’s going to be chic. The designer’s line for Ann Sacks is full of non-traditional picks for the backsplash, including the modern geometric Liaison pattern and speckled Maven design we can’t get enough of.
We love AKDO’s Calacatta tiles as an upgraded, unique take on the classic subway tile. The natural striations and color variations in the Calacatta marble creates a luxurious, slightly rustic look that complements a traditional kitchen design.
Another favorite from AKDO? The brand’s mixed media tile, which combines stone with either glass or mirror for a one-of-a-kind effect. The Allure Charisma Borders tile, below, would be the perfect focal point for a contemporary kitchen design.
We love this graphic take on stone mosaic tile from Daltile because the design feels clean and geometric, but the material has a rough-hewn touch that makes it appropriate for both traditional and modern spaces.
Made by Ann Sacks is the company’s artisan line, which includes 14 unique designs created by a range of designers and craftspeople. The Made collections ensure a bespoke, original look that you won’t find anywhere else.
