Looking to tile the backsplash in my kitchen, so was going to ask around for ideas aswell

If were only considering aesthetics, not price or maintenance, then personally I like the look of a lot of stone backplashes
  • carrara herringbone contrasts well with dark stained timber to give a classic look.
  • Nero Marquinna & gold/brass go really well together too, was thinking about chevron pattern with gold-glitter grout, but have never seen gold glitter grout upclose, dont know if its all prickly like I imagine
  • Mixed brick slips can look nice too, pretty cottage-y
  • Backlit onyx is also a winner, nice warm feel - very slick, would do well in a modern style apartment/bond villain lair

Would think eye-catching mosaics if the backsplash is a feature
Else plain subway tiles, brickbond or stackbond & small colour matching grout if you want to downplay the backsplash to accentuate other aspects of the kitchen
