This small space behind the stove and in between the counter top and kitchen cabinets has gained a lot of attention in the last five years. Remodeling an entire home is an expensive and time-consuming job, however play with little spaces such as kitchen backsplash is affordable and fun! Even if you are not a DIY person, hiring a contractor to do a kitchen backsplash shouldn't be expensive in most part of United States, and ultimately, your kitchen will have a fresh look.
The question is: Where do I start? Well if you look to your kitchen from outside - I would say five to ten feet from the entrance, you will notice a color pattern. Assuming you are happy with it, you can start by picturing the backsplash covered by a nice glass mosaic tile or, if you have stainless steel appliances, just coordinate it with stainless steel tiles.
In terms of colors, following the same color pattern is a "no mistake" path and you can even use darker or lighter tones to create a nice contrast. Also because of most glass tiles come in form of mosaics, you can pick a blend instead of solid colors. That will give a lot of character to your kitchen backsplash.
Aluminum mosaic tile is another option if you are looking for a contemporary or modern look. It is also available in blends, and you will be surprised by the number of colors available such as chocolate, blue, champagne, copper, grey, black, and charcoal.
