Kitchen Backsplash Trends We’re Loving

Backsplashes have and always will be a kitchen must. Whether for functional use, like protecting your walls from the chaos of cooking, or more as a decorative element to your space (we’re talking about you, countertop-to-ceiling marble!), the backsplash is a fundamental piece to your kitchen design. Here are our top three trends we’re loving for your kitchen right now:

1. Backsplash + shelves

Amp up your kitchen storage space by adding shelves to your backsplash! Perfect for the cook who likes to keep a few key pieces on display or the smaller kitchens with limited cabinet space.

How to pull it off:

Shelf Back Splash | Royal flooring


Add in two rows of floating shelves on both sides of the hood vent.


Add in a row or two of shelving above a sink.

Extend the same quartz or marble material used in the backsplash to create a single shelf at the top of the backsplash.

2. Dimensional, textured tiles

It doesn’t take patterns and colors to bring character to your kitchen backsplash! Utilize a textured or dimensional tile to create a more rustic or artistic look.

3. Unique installation patterns

If you love the timelessness of subway tile but crave something a little more catchy, this trend is your jam. Laying backsplash tile in a pattern transforms the traditional look into something unique.
