Backsplash tile is my favorite of all renovation materials! As a renovation lover, that’s saying a lot, but it’s true! Backsplash tile or wall tile is one of those things that can completely transform your space. Switching out a backsplash can change the whole vibe of your room as well, without touching the larger things like cabinets, countertops or bathroom vanities. It’s useful as well as aesthetic, making it a great investment in your home. We’re going to cover our top 10 best backsplash tile choices for the year. Get ready to find a new favorite!

Brick backsplash tile and wall tile has been on the rise since early 2016, but it’s only growing in popularity. This is hands down my favorite new backsplash tile. In the past, it was hard to get this product as a tile. Now, this high quality porcelain comes in a white, taupe, and red brick. It can work with a modern, rustic, industrial, farmhouse or cottage style space with ease!
Wood look tile is not always something that people think of when deciding on a backsplash tile. But that doesn’t mean it’s not an awesome choice! This large format tile gives a very rustic look and adds something really special to your home. It also looks great in bathrooms or as a shower surround!
Herringbone is one of the hottest patterns out right now. You can do a herringbone with brick, subway tile or you can buy a mesh back tile that already has the herringbone pattern like this one above!
Pennies are a great backsplash tile choice for your kitchen or bathroom. It is very simple but can add an understated elegance that will give your space a subtle pop. We carry bright white with a glossy finish, a black glossy, or a matte white. Pennies can look vintage or modern depending on the other pieces in the room.
Hexagon tile is one of my favorite tile options! This shape is very very popular, not only for backsplash tile, but for flooring as well. There are so many different materials, such as a simple white ceramic or marble hexagon tile, or this tile above with multiple finishes and colors. It’s always a stunning choice that won’t soon go out of style.
Colored subway tile is a great twist on a classic backsplash tile. The arctic ice above is a lovely choice, as well as the morning fog or charcoal glass. It adds a great pop of color and freshness to your space without being too overpowering.
Arabesque tile is still on the rise, and I am thrilled! I love this tile and it’s beautiful shape. It adds a very feminine and elegant feel to your kitchen or bathroom. However, you may want to work with a professional on the installation, because it’s not so easy for a beginner to DIY.
Glass mosaics have been popular for a while, but the 1×1 is really on the top of the list this year. It adds so much visual interest and variation. It’s pretty easy to install and it comes in so many different color combinations and finishes that you’re sure to find the right one for your home.
White subway tile has never really gone out of style. It always has been, and always will be, a classic design staple. My favorite variation on this look is to add a dark grout instead of the traditional white. While it doesn’t quite cover all the little imperfections that a white grout would, it makes the backsplash tile really pop and gives it a very vintage and nostalgic look. This can also work in a modern space.
Ledger panels, or ledge stone, is another tile choice that is not always the first thing you might think of for your kitchen. I really love ledge stone because it gives it a very craftsman or rustic look, while still remaining classy and elegant. It comes in so many different colors that you can easily match your cabinets no matter what their finish might be.
