Top 10 Backsplash Tile Trends of 2023

Once you start remodeling your kitchen in 2023 and turn your attention to tile, you'll be glad to know that our collection of backsplash tiles has something that blends in perfectly with many of the latest trends. 2023 trends are emphasizing using tiles of bold colors, choosing tiles of various materials, and not being afraid to get creative and play with different patterns and finishes, so you can let your imagination run wild with an endless array of possibilities. As for the specific 2023 trends, here are the top 10 to keep in mind.

1. Consider the Classics

First, classic tiles such as ceramic and porcelain tiles are looked at in 2023 as beauties that are timeless and never go out of style. Affordable and easy to install, these tiles are perfect for backsplash and they can feature a distinct color, unusual pattern, or anything else you desire.

2. Out with Matte, In with Glossy

In 2023, shiny backsplashes with glossy tiles will be all the rage in homes everywhere. This will make your backsplash even more beautiful, since design trends have nearby surfaces and fixtures remaining matte.

3. Mix Up Your Materials

While in years past using more than one type of tile for a kitchen backsplash was unheard of, that won't be the case in 2023. In fact, you can and should mix up your materials to give your backsplash a unique look that won't be found in any other kitchen. This will be great if you just can't make up your mind about whether to use porcelain, marble, glass, or other types of tile. By using your imagination and deciding to mix and match, you can create a look that personifies your personality.

4. Glass is Great

2023 is expected to see a huge increase in the popularity of glass tiles being used as part of kitchen sink backsplashes. Along with being available in many unique and bold colors, glass tiles are also available with mosaic designs, meaning you can create a work of art behind your sink.

5. Subway Behind Your Sink

Though it hasn't been unusual to see subway tiles used in other parts of kitchens, using them in the backsplash has not been very common. However, 2023 will see that change. In fact, one of the most modern kitchen backsplash ideas is to use subway tiles that are boldly-colored with larger white tiles, since white is expected to be a very popular 2023 color in kitchens. By using this idea, you can make your backsplash a focal point of your entire kitchen.

6. The Natural Look

While white tiles will be extremely popular in 2023 kitchens, so too will colors that have a very natural look. In fact, most designers believe green will be the color of the year in 2023. Should green sound like a great color for your kitchen, you can choose from our wide selection of green tiles that feature anything from vibrant, saturated green to shades that are more understated and even blend in a bit of gray into the tile surface.

7. Higher and Higher

In 2023, more homes will no longer feature wall cabinetry. If this includes your home, this means you don't necessarily have to stop your backsplash at the 18-24 inch high mark. Instead, you can choose to send it all the way to your kitchen ceiling. A fantastic way to make a statement, you can use large patterned tile or mosaic tile to create a stunning look and feel to your kitchen.

8. The Rolling Stones

No, we don't expect you to have pictures of Mick and Keith on your kitchen backsplash, although who knows, that may be a trend in 2024. However, the 2023 trend is using stone tiles to add texture and style to your kitchen. Whether you decide to use tiles with a weathered finish or ones that have an acid-wash look, your kitchen backsplash will be spectacular with stone tiles.

9. Matching Marble

While you may decide you want a simple matte look to your kitchen floor, you may decide to follow a hot 2023 trend and use marble-look tile for your backsplash. This is becoming more popular with homeowners who want their kitchen backsplash to match their countertops, since this gives the appearance of making a smooth and seamless transition from one part of the kitchen to another. Porcelain is a great option as it can be crafted to look just like marble without the high price tag.

10. Different from the Floor

Over the years, most people have chosen to use the same tile for their kitchen backsplash as they did for their kitchen floor. Yet in 2023, we suggest you not make this mistake when choosing tile for your kitchen backsplash. In fact, you should do anything but this, unless you want your kitchen to be oh-so 2022. As for what we suggest, you might want to consider a bold mosaic look to your backsplash, while your floor uses tiles that provide a hardwood-like appearance.
