Five Best Kitchen Backsplash Picture Ideas

Updated on November 8, 2010

Remodeling your kitchen every time there is a new kitchen trend in the home remodeling magazines can cost a fortune and cause a lot of headaches. But when you look at the kitchen designs, earthy interiors are classic and all the rage. The modern contemporary designs are also popular - but the earthy designs never go away.

So, if you have a great, retro looking kitchen, you don't really have to change the entire room to make it into a modern one. Rather, be creative in remodeling it into a beauty by adding classic wall murals. You could add backsplashes with pictures behind your sink or artwork on one of the walls. Remodeling does not have to be expensive. Just widen your imagination.

Here are the five best kitchen backsplash picture ideas which could help you decide on an image you want to add to liven up your kitchen.

Go out on a limb...be creative with your kitchen designs. This "Chickens in a Barnyard" by Edgar Hunt is a quirky touch you can add to your kitchen. It's fun and refreshing compared to the usual boring flower murals you see in the market. Aside from that, the color hues make it easier to match up to different kitchen motifs and colors.

This is easy to install as long as you follow the instructions. Installation could get a little messy but don't worry, as you can easily clean this with water and a sponge. This probably looks better in a country house though than in a kitchen of an uptown apartment, but if you're really the quirky sort, you can make it work anywhere really. It's a great kitchen backsplash tile.

This kitchen mural is great as an eye-catching but classic backsplash or a countertop mural. It is ceramic tile with a satin finish making it just glossy enough. Each tile is individually handcrafted and made up of highest-quality materials.

Though the product description says that it's perfect for your shower walls, spa or other bathing areas, the image really calls out to be a kitchen mural. If you have one, it's well-placed in a bar also since the wine bottles and fruits details would make it appropriate in there.

This kitchen mural does not just look good in your kitchen. This would look pretty stunning in your bathroom, spa area and maybe even in your living room. This can even be a table-top if you want. This mural comes in a 28" x 16" size and is composed of 18 natural marble 4" x 4" tiles and 40 2" x 2" border tiles. This could really turn your kitchen into an elegant place.

This tile mural is not just for the sink backsplash. You could install it anywhere. It's marble so it's rather luxurious and rich-looking while also being earthy. The color is pale so take care when putting it in colorful kitchens. It would make a drab spot in your kitchen if you have a kitchen based on vivid colors. However, if you have a monochromatic-designed kitchen, there is always a place for this tile feature.

This could really add a serious punch of color into an earthy or Italian motif kitchen. An individually handcrafted mural that is made to order, this is really striking with the image of Cyprus trees and the Tuscan landscape. You could always use this just as wall décor iin any room by adhering it to backboard for security.

With the tones on this mural, it would look especially nice in a red-yellow-orange room or kitchen. This doesn't really look good in blue rooms, unless you have a very good interior designer who is good when it comes to playing with colors. Be careful in putting this mural in a green room also, as it can look a bit lost. This would also look nice in a modern room as long as there is a touch of red or orange in the room colors.

"Tuscany Forever" by Mikki Senkarik - Ceramic Tile Mural 12.75" x 17" Kitchen Shower Backsplash

Contemporary kitchens are usually in a stainless, black and white, or blue finish, usually in a monochromatic motif. In some cases they come off looking cold and boring, yet it is all the rage nowadays. If you want to add some life into that kind of setting, this Tuscany Forever kitchen backsplash would look appropriate.

See the details in the picture. There is a real vibrancy to it; the blue-white colors of the sky and mountain adds a cool calmness to the picture. That hue makes this item appropriate for those stainless and blue modern kitchens, while the beautiful colors of flowers and trees add warmth and a bit of life.

    I really like the running horses. I've been looking for something for my kitchen but am having a hard time figuring out what colors to use. I've got a spice orange feature wall so I'm thinking maybe tan and some red?
