Creative design ideas for kitchen backsplashes include using chalkboard, living tile or fine woods. Additional ideas are to use recycled glass pieces, a single sheet of painted glass or classic subway tile.
Installing a chalkboard as a backsplash in the kitchen is creative because pictures, messages and menu items may be written on it and changed as desired. Living tiles that incorporate plant life add texture and a natural element to the kitchen, and they are also good for the environment.
Backsplashes made fro fine pieces of wood add character to the kitchen. The unique colors of recycled glass may help inspire the color scheme for the entire kitchen. Recycled glass may also be used for countertops.
