A backsplash is a detail that can add a lot of value and character to a space. Against the rectilinear uniformity of most cabinetry, a backsplash can be the "piece de resistance" that conveys the client's aesthetic, while bringing a splash of colour, texture or pattern to an otherwise functional work area. 

From the classic use of subway tiles to wall-to-wall marble, a standout backsplash can be realized in a host of different materials and finishes. We love using bold backsplashes to enhance the character of our spaces and to further our proposed design concept.

Here are a few samples of some of our favourites:

This old-world kitchen has a backsplash of hand glazed tiles that shimmer with a metallic finish, to create warmth and drama around all the kitchen cookery. (Casey Design / Planning Group Inc. - photograph by Ted Yarwood).

We used a graphic backsplash to add colour and pattern in a laundry room with creme cabinetry and countertops. (Casey Design / Planning Group Inc. - photograph by Ted Yarwood)

A Calcatta marble slab acts as the countertop and backsplash. This marble creates a uniform look that intrigues with its stark contrast to the dark cabinetry. (Casey Design / Planning Group Inc. - photograph by Ted Yarwood)

We love the use of pattern and colour in this striking backsplash! (Bisazza)
