A kitchen backsplash can be an opportunity to display a work of art in your kitchen.

There are endless options, as there are so many different colours, shapes, patterns, textures, and finishes of tile to consider. Of course, this can be a bit of an undertaking. You do want to be sure that what you end up choosing will not only match your interior design aesthetic, but will stand the test of time, too!

Glossy Finish

The finish that you choose for your kitchen backsplash can affect how dated it appears. Trends in 2023, we are seeing a move away from the trend of everything being matte. Instead, consider opting for tiles that have a glossy finish for your kitchen backsplash! Materials such as glass or ceramic tile will all come in glossy options, so there is no shortage of tiles to choose from. This finish can serve to accent the matte finish of the counters or other appliances in your kitchen. If you do have matte appliances, a glossy backsplash is a good choice as they will also help your backsplash to stand out even more!

Mixed Materials

Mixing materials can be a popular design method in fashion, soft interiors, and now your kitchen backsplash, too! Before 2023, it was more than uncommon to use different materials in your kitchen backsplash. You would use one type of tile for the backsplash, and that was it! However, in 2023, we are seeing mixed materials being implemented for a more unique look. It gives the feel of you having a one of a kind installment in your kitchen. Plus, if you are having trouble choosing between the myriad of options, now you don’t have to.

Subway Tiles

Subway tiles for the kitchen backsplash have always been popular, and they are enduring into 2023 as another of the popular backsplash trends. They were also used in other parts of the kitchen before becoming popular for backsplashes, too. Subway tile in neutrals can be a timeless look for your kitchen, and can go well with many different design aesthetics and styles of decor.

Currently, we are seeing white subway tiles being mixed with other subway tiles of bolder colours for some more flair, rather than just keeping them all plain white for a simpler and more minimal look. We are also seeing more rectangular tiles that are going vertical instead of horizontal. This has been all the rage right now

Natural Colours

Subtle and natural colours have started to emerge in interior design, which is refreshing after years of white and neutrals taking centre stage. These natural colours are also starting to be seen in backsplash design, and will be even more apparent as we move into 2023. Many interior designers and decorators are already declaring that green is going to be 2023’s colour of the year! This can manifest in cool, subtle sage green, or a darker and moodier forest green. You can choose between bold, natural colours and more understated shades– so there truly is a colour option out there for every person’s tastes!

Stone Tiles

Another trend that we are seeing for 2023 backsplashes is a slightly less common material, at least for this purpose– stone tiles. This is in keeping with the natural materials that we discussed above with the kitchen design trends of natural colours. We’re also seeing natural stone countertops in the list of trends as well. You can opt for stone tiles that look more weathered, for a lived in look, or you can try stones that have an acid wash look or are really smooth and uniform. It’s up to you, and the aesthetic that you are inspired by when shopping for your kitchen space! Stone is a great backdrop for plants and natural wood elements, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the kitchen trends for 2023?

There are already some great design trends for your kitchen coming out for 2023. These include warmer tones and pops of colour, instead of the basic white and neutrals that we have become so accustomed to. Two tone wood kitchens are another trend that is beginning to show its face, while some of the trends that will not be quite as popular are Scandinavian or farmhouse chic style– though, these will still remain in some capacity!

We’re seeing more open shelving and high ceilings, these options can make a statement in your kitchen as you can style an open shelf to be eye catching and create a focal point better than closed kitchen cabinets. Pendant lights are still a must in the kitchen design world. They make a statement and make your kitchen feel complete.

What is the most timeless kitchen backsplash?

A kitchen backsplash is an easy way to add some colour or flair to your kitchen space without totally revamping the whole space. However, as it can be a statement piece, you will want to choose a style that is enduring– otherwise, if it begins to look dated, it will be very obvious. One of the most timeless kitchen backsplashes and favorite trend these days is considered to be subway tile, in whites and neutrals, rather than the bolder and brighter colours that are available. 

What is the trend for backsplash in 2022?

In the last few years, backsplashes began to get a lot more attention. 2022 saw clean and straight lines, as well as neutral color schemes as some of the popular trends for backsplashes. Designers and homeowners used backsplashes to underscore modern, minimalist design aesthetics. Plus, these neutral color schemes and geometric shapes go with just about any aesthetic. Some of the backsplash trends that are a bit bolder include tiles with patterns on them or bright colors, which are particularly flattering for bohemian or maximalist design aesthetics. However, they do also run the risk of looking dated faster than the simpler and more neutral kitchen backsplash options. 

What backsplash is out of style?

As there are many different styles of backsplash– from the placement of the backsplash to the style, colour, shape, or finish of the tiles chosen– there are quite a few of styles that are also no longer popular. You will likely want to stay away from these options so that your kitchen looks modern and up to date. One type of backsplash that is now out of style is the skinny backsplash. Instead in kitchens today, we are now seeing the backsplashes that span from the counter all the way up to the cabinets. This is a popular choice and is easier to clean, and also makes more of an aesthetic impact!
