After completing our latest YouTube video featuring our new peel & stick backsplash, we really got to thinking about how much impact a backsplash can have on a kitchen’s look. Choose a color that doesn’t go with your cabinets, and the whole vibe of your room is skewed- but on the flip side, you may risk a washed-out look with a hue that matches too much. It’s safe to say that backsplashes hold a certain amount of power regarding kitchen decor. Here are ten unique and beautiful backsplashes to serve as inspiration for finding your kitchen’s perfect finishing touch.
1. Tin Tile Treasure
