Multi-functioning backsplashes. Yes, your backsplash's primary job is to protect the integrity of your kitchen wall by guarding against spills and splashes, but that doesn't mean that you should refrain using it for other things. Many homeowners prefer to take the same concept that aides them in maximizing space within a small kitchen and apply it to the backsplash idea, hanging utensils and other frequently used items along the trim. The more functionality you can get from the components of the kitchen, the easier it will be to use. And ease of use leads to less frustration in the long run.
As for design, your choice of backsplash can be matched to the countertop for that orderly and efficient look. Or, for a more dramatic effect you could throw in some color with patterned tiles or even a checkerboard. A mirrored backsplash might make a good choice for a smaller kitchen. And if you want more light, be sure to use a light colored backsplash.
Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
