Backsplashes are not only functional at protecting your walls from kitchen grease and water damage, but they are also a beautiful addition to your home’s design and overall aesthetic. Plus, there are hundreds of styles and types of backsplashes available nowadays. Selecting a backsplash for your home design has never been easier, and with us being in the middle of 2019, we have noticed some unique trends happening in homes and businesses. Check out some of our favorite 2019 trending backsplash ideas that you can add to your own home for added flair and character:
Encaustic Cement Tiles
Encaustic tiles are actually not a new concept, but their name may sound a bit unfamiliar to you. They have been around for centuries and have recently made a strong comeback this year in the housing market. They are extremely durable and add a unique aesthetic look to any room. These tiles are packed with character and artisan design, which can work in any atmosphere.
Large Subway Tiles
Typically, subway tiles are the classic 3”x6” white tiles. However, larger subway tiles are becoming more and more common in design. Subway tiles are a timeless classic used in many designs, including commercial spaces. These larger tiles allow buyers to purchase fewer boxes to complete a project. It is also trending to have subway tiles go higher up in the kitchen than the typical backsplash height. Some backsplashes now run from the counters to the ceilings for a more complete look.
While tiles are the common backsplash choice, many alternative options are coming out on the market. Shiplap is a wood layover many homeowners may use as an alternative for a more rustic look. Other materials like beadboard, glass, and even fabric have been making their rounds in interior designing in early 2019.
People are taking more risk currently in interior design. Bold colors are making a comeback as well. Where neutrals were primarily the route for backsplashes, it is not uncommon for many people to look for fresh, more lively colors to add to their home through backsplashes.
Backsplashes are great additions for kitchens and baths. All of these styles are very beautiful and will look amazing in many different types of homes. Which of these interests you the most?
