Rustic Elegance

Classic white subway tile with black grout, black countertops, open shelving and white cabinets create a setting that is casual yet very sophisticated. As seen on DIY Network's Bryk At A Time

White and Blue Farmhouse Style

The teal backsplash adds a bright shot of personality to this classic black and white kitchen. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen.

1940s Charm

This kitchen was given vintage makeover with Jadeite-inspired cabinets and stove. A glass-tile backsplash tops it off with a floating bubble-like mosaic. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen.

Black and White Rustic-Modern Kitchen

This small kitchen uses a variety of textures to make a big impact. The countertops are old chalkboards, which contrast beautifully against the modern white backsplash tile and stainless-steel sink. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen.

Slanted Lines

Classic white subway laid in a chevron pattern mimics the angles on the adjacent staircase and wall panels. As seen on DIY Network's The Expandables.

Monochromatic But Bold

The rich patterned backsplash makes a stunning statement, but it's warm colors subtly blend in with the wood cabinets and floor. As seen on DIY Network's House Crashers

A Mix of Old World Charm

A soft-blue arabesque backsplash makes an exquisite contrast to the rough-hewn wood accents and stainless-steel appliances in this Tudor-style cottage. As seen on DIY Network's Kitchen Crashers.

Bottlecap Backsplash

A wall full of vintage bottlecaps adds a one-of-a-kind vintage flair. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen

Bright and Colorful

Natural wood cabinets and concrete countertops make a neutral backdrop for the vivid-colored backsplash. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen

Illuminated Onyx Backsplash

A backlit slab of onyx makes an eye-catching focal point in this modern kitchen. As seen on DIY Network's Custom Built

Warm Colors and Detailed Patterns

The intricate-patterned backsplash lends a Mediterranean vibe to this two-tone kitchen. As seen on House Crashers

Wood Slat Backsplash

The backsplash may look like high-end ceramic tile, but it's actually wood slats stained in four different colors. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen

The Colors of Latte, Cocoa and Cream

Because backsplashes are in the middle of the wall they can create a bridge for the room's design and color scheme. Here, the beige tile are the perfect medium between the dark lower and white upper cabinets. As seen on DIY Network's House Crashers.

Mix It Up

Two very different tiles are used to give this small kitchen a lot of style. A tight basketweave pattern accents the cooktop, while aquamarine glass subway tile covers the rest of the wall. As seen on DIY Network's Kitchen Crashers.

Vintage Family Photos

Brian Patrick Flynn designed this modern kitchen with gray high-gloss cabinetry and a cutting edge backsplash made from a black-and-white photo. Orange accents brighten the monochromatic palette.

Wooden Kitchen Backsplash

Budget-friendly wood is used to create a three-dimensional backsplash in this contemporary kitchen. As seen on DIY Network's Sledgehammer.

Modern Rustic Kitchen

This kitchen mixes old and new elements to create a wonderfully eclectic setting. Wine bottles were upcycled to make a one-of-a-kind light fixture, while a pair of antique chairs make for a handy dining space. A modern tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances provide all the convenient amenities. As seen on DIY Network's Kitchen Crashers

Arabesque Patterned Backsplash

The same tile in two different colors help accent the cooking area while providing continuity. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen

Opalescent Texture

A high-tech kitchen faucet is a perfect contrast to the three-dimension backsplash and concrete countertop. As seen on DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen

Aga Stove With Stone

This newly renovated kitchen mixes old world materials – like a cast-iron stove, copper hood vent and a natural stone backsplash – with the latest high-tech amentities. As seen on DIY Network's The Vanilla Ice Project.

Old Homestead

The kitchen in Daryl Hall's 18th-century home looks like a hard-working kitchen, but all the 21st-century amentities are present in this charming, historic space. As seen on DIY Network's Daryl's Restoration Over-Hall.

Reclaimed Wood Backsplash

A reclaimed wood backsplash adds color and texture to this eclectic kitchen. As seen on DIY Network’s House Crashers.
