A kitchen backsplash can be designed from a broad range of materials, including glass, metal and slate. In addition to their functional purpose, most backsplashes are also put in place to serve as a design accent to the overall look of a kitchen. It is important to choose a design that enhances the look of kitchen cabinetry, wall colors and other decorative aspects.

For example, in a contemporary kitchen space, a cool slate or stainless steel will pair well with dark colors like cherry wood cabinets and slate gray painted walls. Other kitchen designs, like a country style kitchen, might benefit from a simple white paneled backsplash that enhances the farmhouse feel.

Whether it's an eye-catching green glass or understated marble, the design should work in harmony with the rest of the kitchen.
