A kitchen backsplash can be an eyecatching focal point as well as a practical way to catch splatters. “When using a unique stone like the natural blue-green quartz I sourced and specified for the custom kitchen above, I keep the splash the same as the top to create maximum impact. It’s a major design element,” said interior designer Eloise Kubli, owner of Collective Construction and Design in Plantation.

Getting Started

First, choose a style. How much wall do you want to cover? Next, decide on a material — or more than one. “Do you want to continue with the same material as the countertop, or use something that contrasts in color and texture?” Kubli said.

With some countertops, using something different for the backsplash may create a look that’s cluttered or busy. Some manmade quartz, for example, which is a popular countertop material, can have significant pattern and movement. In that case, continuing with the same material on the backsplash may be the best idea.

Something Different

Choosing a material that’s completely different from the countertop can create a stunning backsplash that draws the eye in a way that simply extending the counter top does not. Don’t be afraid to be creative and make up your own rules.
