If your kitchen is a hyper-modern affair boasting stainless steel appliances and angular, monochrome cabinets, you'll have an opportunity to add some color, patterning and visual excitement to what might otherwise be a minimalist design via your backsplash. Alternatively, you may choose to stick with the sleek, modern feel with simple white subway tile or large, slate-like granite pieces. On the other hand, if your kitchen has more of a traditional or country feel, with lots of detailed wood cabinetry and a cozy design, you may want to consider tile that reflects the overall aesthetic and incorporates whimsical designs or traditional colors and patterns.

Ceramic tile doesn't need this extra step, but natural tile does if you want to maintain its appearance. "If the tile is stainless steel, find out if abrasives will scratch it, and I would suggest getting a grout additive and sealing the grout itself so it stays fresh and clean for longer," Van Deusen says.

Your choices in terms of materials, colors and layout are just about infinite, with a wide range of aesthetic, quality and price options. Ceramic tile is a popular choice for kitchen backsplash designs because it's widely available and comes in an almost infinite variety of styles and colors. Perhaps most importantly, ceramic tile can be cleaned fairly easily (the "splash" in backsplash is there for good reason). Within the range of ceramic tile choices, you'll find simple high-gloss "subway tile" styles in every color of the rainbow, all the way through to elaborate designs and patterns that can give your kitchen a tremendous amount of visual flair.

Stainless steel appliances are quite popular, offering both a sleek appearance, great durability and a surface that wipes clean easily.

Your local home improvement or tile specialty store is your friend here, and you can also browse countless backsplash material options online. You'll need to decide on the right style for the material as well—most backsplash materials are available in a wide range of colors, textures and patterns. For a small kitchen design, consider a backsplash that adds personality, color and visual interest without overwhelming the small space or making it feel exceedingly cramped.

For the most impact, choose a color that will really pop against the palette of the rest of the kitchen. To add an extra element of interest, consider a different paint finish (if you used an eggshell paint on the walls of your kitchen, consider a glossy finish for the backsplash). This will also really help your backsplash pop.

You can almost always use the backsplash as an opportunity to add color and visual diversity to your kitchen—although particularly expressive designs tend to be best in a kitchen that otherwise features an understated, minimalist look. Conversely, if your kitchen design features intricate cabinets or elaborate countertops, you may want a more relaxed feel for your backsplash, so as not to create visual overload.
