Guide to Kitchen Tiles: Top Backsplash Trends

We’re tempted to say that the tile backsplash of your Adelaide kitchen is more important than the floor tiles. When people enter a kitchen, they don’t look at the ground; they look straight ahead. So, the first thing that’ll be visible is the backsplash.

No need to mention the floor tiles of your kitchen since all we’ll be talking about here are your backsplash tiles.

If you want to improve the tile backsplash of your Adelaide kitchen, keep reading. Here are the top backsplash trends you’ll love in your kitchen:


Honeycomb Kitchen tiles

Are you a lover of mesmerising patterns and would love to give your kitchen a quirky look? Honeycomb tiles will serve as a goofy backsplash in your kitchen. It is a type of finish that has risen in popularity seemingly overnight because of its advantages.

It is perfect in the kitchen as it’s easy to clean and doesn’t absorb oils. It’s also perfect for the Adelaide weather, as it doesn’t change depending on the temperature.



Metal finishes, just like the material they’re made out of, never age or go out of style. Metal backsplashes give your kitchen a chromatic look no other type of finish can provide. The best part is that you can share any finish you want.

You can have it with a brass, copper, or silver shine.

The backsplash would look right at home in your Adelaide minimalistic kitchen with silver equipment. Some tiles can imitate the metallic finish so well that you wouldn’t even know the difference.



Wood never goes out of style; it only gets finer as it ages. This applies to wood in all decoration endeavours, such as furniture, kitchen design, etc. Wood backsplashes have been a thing for a long time and will most likely continue.

If you want to, you can use natural wood as a backsplash option if you can handle some of its drawbacks. For example, it doesn’t do well with moisture and will need regular maintenance. However, you don’t have to deal with the problems of natural wood since there are tiles with wooden finishes.

Certain kitchen tiles imitate wood so well, down to the knot, that you’d never be able to tell that it’s not wood.


Natural stone

If you’ve seen natural stone tiles, you already know why it’s a top backsplash trend. With beautiful colours that come together in various wild varieties of shades, natural stone tiles are a favourite in the kitchen. And I don’t think it would require much work because it’s so shiny. On the contrary, natural stone tiles are easy to care for and highly durable.

They retain their shine and don’t show signs of wear and tear. They don’t absorb walls, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re pleasant to look at.
