Holiday season is in full swing! We adore taking the time to make our homes extra cozy and special before guests arrive. As much as we love spending time with friends and family, it can also make us aware of some kitchen improvements we'd like to make for our next get-together. Here are 11 beautiful kitchen backsplashes that will wow your guests every time.
1. Minimal Moroccan Backsplash
Some shapes are so beautiful they don't need any extra fringe or design. Our Moroccan Fish Scales absolutely look perfect in one simple shade. We adore using a contrasting grout color for a minimalist but bold look.

2. Contemporary Subway Tile
While Subway tile is absolutely timeless, it's clean and straight-forward shape makes it perfect for a contemporary kitchen design. We love this project, where they only partially tiled their beautiful kitchen backsplash. Sometimes less really is more.

7. Mixing & Matching Tile Shapes
Our latest love in tile: mixing and matching shapes. Since we make everything at our factory in NE Minneapolis it's easy for us to make customizations to our shapes. For a project like this, we'd glue your project onto mesh, creating simple interlocking sheets making installation easy.

9. Mid-Century Modern Backsplash
When it comes to Mid-Century Modern, we think that it's all about the simple and subtle design choices. For this kitchen we used the high variation 130 White to create a beautiful organic coloring. Then just a simple herringbone pattern as the stove splash provides a stunning contrast.
