Explore the top 11 kitchen backsplash ideas that will give your home a touch of elegance and style.
Subway Tiles Classic with a Twist
Subway tiles have a timeless appeal, but they can be given a modern touch by choosing unique finishes, colors, or layouts. You can add sophistication to your tiles by using diagonal, herringbone, or vertical patterns. These tiles give off a nostalgic feel from old kitchen designs.

Bold and Vibrant Designs
Designer tiles are available in many different patterns and colors. To create a focal point in your kitchen, choose bold designs with vibrant colors. They can be particularly effective if used sparingly or as an accent behind a stove or sink.
H&R Johnson’s Glamour and Exotic wall tile portfolios feature some of the most unusual color and pattern patterns. These large format tiles (60x120cm), however, are difficult to install on curved walls.

Glamourous High-Gloss Tiles
Modern kitchens can benefit from the uniqueness of glass tiles. The tiles reflect light, which makes your kitchen appear brighter and larger. The kitchen will be glitzy with iridescent or frosted tiles.
The same backsplash can be achieved with polished high gloss vitrified tiles. These full-body tiles are durable and offer a highly reflective and easy-to-maintain surface for your backsplash.
Due to their hardness on the surface and their ability to resist scratches, these sturdy tiles are popularly used for kitchen counter applications. Use the same pattern as backsplash marks to create an elegant kitchen design.
Metallic finishes such as stainless steel, copper, or brushed nickel can give your kitchen a touch of industrial chic. These tiles look great with modern appliances.
H&R Johnson offers a wide range of options for creating this look in your kitchen. H&R Johnson offers a variety of options for metallic accents, including Fero Oxido tile in a special polished finish or Atlanta Cobalt tiles with lustrous high gloss.
For a truly personalized and unique backsplash, you can choose hand-painted tiles or custom-designed ones. They can be a great way to show off your creativity in the kitchen and make it a focal point.
Hand-painted tiles have become a rarity in the digitally printed tile world. Digitally printed tiles do have some stunning designs. Digitally coordinated tiles can be used to create large murals or a landscape in the kitchen.
You can also use H&R Johnson’s designs, such as Naplem and Nexium.
Moroccan or Mediterranean Flair
Bring a touch of exotic beauty to your kitchen with Moroccan or Mediterranean-inspired tiles. The intricate patterns and vibrant colors can take you on a journey to exotic destinations every time you prepare food.

Enjoy a Subdued Elegance by Using Monochromatic Tiles
Choose monochromatic tiles with different shades of the same color for a more subtle look. This creates a cohesive and sophisticated backdrop for your kitchen.
H&R Johnson offers plain-colored ceramic tile under the 30x45cm Wall Tile Concepts. You can create the kitchen backdrop you want with these seven solid colors.
You can create a dynamic and modern backsplash by experimenting with geometric patterns and shapes. Hexagonal tiles, geometric mosaics, or chevron tiles can add style and energy to your kitchen.
You can create these patterns and designs using 10x30cm tiles or by installing mosaic tiles. However, large tiles with geometric designs are also a great choice.
Glossy Elevation Tiles
The glossy elevation tiles will add texture and depth to your kitchen backsplash while still maintaining its stain-free and reliable nature. The reflective surface and three-dimensional design of the tiles add sophistication to the backsplash. The smooth texture of the tiles makes it easy to clean since spills and splatters are easily wiped off.
H&R Johnson provides a wide range of designs in glossy elevation tiles for the kitchen backsplash.
Heritage Tiles for Classical Design
The Heritage solid color 10x10cm and 10x30cm tile collection is perfect for bringing a traditional touch to your modern kitchen. Smaller tiles allow for a variety of custom design options. You can choose from a number of patterns and follow them to create a unique look in your kitchen.
The 10x30cm heritage tiles come in many popular patterns, including subway, herringbone, and chevron.
Selecting the right design for your kitchen
Modern homes often have an open-concept kitchen that is attached to the living area. You can show off your personality and style with the easily visible backsplash in the kitchen. There are many options available, whether you want a classic and elegant style or a bold look.
The height of the backsplash in a kitchen is usually 60 cm. You can, therefore, use tiles up to 60cm wide. If you’re on a tight budget, this measurement will limit your options for tile sizes. If cutting and shaping are not an issue, you can purchase large slabs of vitrified tile and resize on site for a premium look.
