This year the kitchen will be the room to make an impact in as we make a shift from less white to more patterns and colors incorporated into backsplashes. As a functional purpose, kitchen backsplashes are great for catching spills and splashes from cooking, but they also serve a design purpose as well. If you’re looking to take your kitchen to the next level, try incorporating a bold patterned or colorful backsplash into your design this year.

For an eclectic look, try mixing and matching several different patterns in similar colors to truly make your space personal. If you decide to make your backsplash the focal point of the room, make sure to keep the rest of the kitchen neutral. If eclectic is a bit too much but you still want to add a statement to your space, bring a bold colored backsplash to your neutral or white kitchen. This is a great way to still make a bold statement while keeping your design timeless.

And if you prefer to stick to an overall neutral color scheme, you can still find a neutral colored backsplash in a fun and bold pattern to keep a classic look to your space.
