What’s Trending in Kitchen Backsplashes in 2021?

Need help with choosing a kitchen backsplash? Consider these trending ideas!

Kitchen backsplashes are a necessary decorative piece in kitchen design, protecting your kitchen drywall from stains, splashes, and heat. They also make a statement, enhancing the true personality of your kitchen. With so many options, it can be difficult to choose just one. Below is what’s trending in kitchen backsplashes in 2021!

Textured Tiles

Glossy, smooth, geometric tiles have been the go-to choice for many. Simple and clean, they come in plenty of patterns and colors to please just about anyone. However, the trend in kitchen backsplashes is turning toward something a little different. Instead of your average subway tile, some are going for textured tiles that add a point of interest that wasn’t there before.

Slab Stone

Slab stone is also trending in kitchen backsplashes. A solid plane of marble, granite, or another natural stone is easy to clean and timeless. Many 2021 kitchen designs are using the same material for the kitchen countertop, backsplash, and open shelving, if any. Whether you have a modern, farmhouse, traditional, or any other kind of kitchen style, natural stone looks great.

Slate Wall

If you have a slate floor, maybe a slate backsplash might work for you. Slate is naturally dark grey, and it is also great for writing in chalk. For the artist in the family, a slate wall is the place to let out one’s creativity. For the to-do lister, it’s great for writing down the grocery list, a recipe, or the week’s menu.

Artwork Backsplash

For a focal point of luxury, backsplash that features artwork is still popular in 2021. This type of backsplash can be incredibly unique. One can either use a mosaic or painted tile. If you are an artist, you can consider painting the tile yourself. If you want to create your own mosaic, one can use bits of discarded material such as broken glass, CDs, tiles, and more!

Metals & Mirrors

Lastly, metals are almost equivalent to natural stone slabs for trending backsplashes. Metals include bronze, silver, copper, tin, and stainless steel. Metal backsplashes can come in tiles, slabs, sheets, etc. They can have all kinds of creative textures and finishes. If you need a visual, visit one of Kenwood Kitchens’ four Maryland showrooms!
