Kitchen Design Trends: Range Backsplashes

A classic (and personal favorite) way to add some interest, texture and even color to any kitchen design is via a range backsplash. To us, tile is a great way to really polish up and infuse character into a design. A distinctive range backsplash provides you the opportunity to utilize a bold tile that you love, but may be too bold for the entire backsplash. Although the space it covers may be relatively sparse, a well-designed range backsplash can make a truly stylish impact. Whether a range backsplash features subway tile in a unique pattern, dry-stacked stone, or a colorful mosaic, we’re always looking for new and inspiring spins on this particular design element.

Read on for some of our favorite range backsplashes we’ve sourced from our own projects and from around the web . . .

 

Accent tile in the same hue as the rest of the subway tile backsplash creates a chic, monochromatic effect in this beautiful black & white kitchen from our designer, Jenny Siebert.

This behemoth of a range is the true focal point of this rustic kitchen. We love how the mini mosaic tiles in the recessed range backsplash mimic the colors in the dry-stacked range hood. Three backsplash materials work together to create a rustic and textural monochromatic look.

A range backsplash is an ideal spot to utilize Morrocan-inspired tile. Graphic and bold, the distinctive shapes of many Morrocan tiles may be too busy to use for your entire backsplash, so sometimes just a touch of tile you love can go a long way.

We love taking the same tile as the rest of the backsplash and just placing it in a different pattern to create a subtle focal point for your range. For example, this subway tile takes on an entirely new character in a herringbone pattern.

Basketweave tile is so classic and chic. Even more chic? A marble basketweave range backsplash paired with Carrara marble subway tile. Stunning.

This pop of color is spot on. Add character with your favorite color via glass, mosaic or subway tile.
