Glass Backsplashes

Glass is a unique way to give your kitchen a modern and streamlined look. It can be bold or it can be subtle—it’s really up to you and the look you’re going for. The best part is the wall it’s mounted on can be painted to complement the color of your kitchen, so the sky is the limit when it comes to color. Since it’s naturally reflective, glass also makes your kitchen feel more spacious. And, of course, it’s easy to clean.

Subway tile Backsplashes

Subway tile is a classic look, and incredibly versatile, too, since it creates a neutral background for accent pieces. You can find large or small tiles, and they can be positioned horizontally, vertically, or even diagonally. Not to mention, you can pick any color grout to complement or contrast with your tile.
