2022 Tile Trends for Backsplash

by | Decor ideas, kitchen design

One of the easiest ways to make your kitchen really stand out is to pick a backsplash that is totally unique and totally YOU. Unlike some of the other elements of a kitchen design (like appliances, flooring, cabinetry, and lighting), today’s tile trends for backsplash design don’t require a lot of time, effort, or money — just some imagination! Take a look at a few of the tile trends for backsplash design that we are seeing this year:

White, White, and More White

White tile trends for backsplashes are in; a lot of color is out. White is versatile; it complements all different design schemes, allowing homeowners to customize the rest of the kitchen with color and textures without fear of the overall design becoming “too much.” White also denotes cleanliness, a requisite for all kitchens!

Unique Shapes

While straight lines are classic and never out of style (we’re looking at you, rectangular subway tile), the majority of the tile trends for backsplash design that we are seeing this year create drama and showcase style using unique patterns and shapes. Triangles, diamonds, arabesques, fans, and especially hexagons are highly popular right now. Even if you’re a traditionalist, you can make a bold statement by simply turning rectangular tiles vertically or at an angle for a herringbone pattern!

Stone Materials

2022 tile trends for backsplash designs aim to denote distinction. Natural materials are one-of-a-kind. Using them to create a custom backsplash ensures that homeowners have a backslash that is truly original. It can never be replicated because no two pieces of limestone, granite, marble, or slate are ever the same!

Go Big or Go Home!

Typical kitchen backsplashes are four to eight inches. Recently, however, we’re more often installing higher backsplashes, running them halfway to the cabinets above or even extending them the entire exposed wall to the cabinets’ bottom edges or the ceiling itself. Positioning the backsplash from counter to cabinet not only better protects the wall, but it also creates a more cohesive visual, emphasizing the rest of the kitchen design.

Trends may influence design, but they should never dictate it! Good design represents the functional requirements and style of the person (or people) creating it. It’s fun to review the current tile trends for backsplashes, but you should make sure you pick a backsplash that matches your own special needs.
