The inspiration for kitchen backsplashes has always come from a mix of aesthetics and functionality as well as contemporary trends. In the last two decades, trends have shifted from vintage pop-up colors to a minimalist ultra-organized kitchen with functional cabinets and walls. The design of the backsplash has also changed.
Modern kitchen backsplashes will be based on a wide range of materials and colors in 2023.
Consider these eight top themes:
1. Bold Patterns
Create a bold, modern backsplash with large, colorful tiles. This style will make your backsplash a focal point in your kitchen. H&R Johnson Glamour Series porcelain tile offers a wide range of options with its pop-up colors and quirky patterns.

The Best Tile Design for Your Kitchen
When choosing a theme for your backsplash, you should consider your overall kitchen style, its functionality, and your taste. These trends provide a wide range of options for any kitchen.
When selecting new kitchen tile designs, you should consider the functionality first. If your kitchen wall has a curve, you’ll need to use smaller tiles to make installation easier and maximize space. It can restrict your design options.
