Kitchen wall tiles: Ideas for every style and budget


We’ve all been victims of the kitchen mess. A bubbling pot, a pan that splatters, a dropped bowl—make cleanup easier in all of these situations with tile that protects your kitchen surfaces. Whether on the backsplash, the walls, the floors or all three, one of the best properties of tile is how easily it wipes clean. Tile is versatile enough that you’ll always find one to coordinate or contrast with your cupboards, counters and existing decor.

Make sure your favorite tile stands out to everyone by accenting it in a frame.


Often what’s trending in design is trending in tile, too. In 2020, we’re seeing lots of hexagons, dark, dramatic colors, like navy blue, dark green and black, brick looks, patterned or encaustic tiles and mixed metallics. Classic subway tiles are still popular but colors besides white are starting to make appearances, keeping this look fresh and interesting. Patterned tiles, especially if they are used up to the ceiling to cover an entire wall, give your space the look and feel of wallpaper in an easy-to-care-for material. Glass splashbacks, which are large pieces of tempered glass that usually have a pattern or print, are popular in Europe and have begun making their mark in the United States. Use these eye-catching pieces to make a statement over a stovetop or behind a sink.

Mediterranean cobalt blues and floral-inspired patterns make this kitchen patchwork effect memorable.


You’ve chosen the cabinets, worktops and flooring but there’s one more vital element that can make or break your dream scheme. Kitchen wall tiles both protect and personalise the hardest working room in the house. Available in every colourway and a huge range of patterned, textured or plain designs, these ceramic wonders are having a real moment. From bold splashbacks to modern shapes, geometrics and mosaics, these super stylish ideas are sure to inspire.

With its shiny completion and Art Deco-propelled shape, it figures out how to be both retro and absolutely present day while bringing the glitz factor to any kitchen. Organize them with the amplest part at the top for a fan configuration, flip them over for a Moroccan-style tear or go flat to get the mermaid impact.
