Let’s talk tile! Since I have all things kitchen on my brain, I figured it was time to share my favorite affordable & classic backsplash tile options. My tile just arrived and it’s nothing short of stunning! I get a lot of questions about which backsplash options will withstand the test of time, so consider this post your guide. All of the tile I rounded up can also be purchased at Lowe’s- so it’s accessible, affordable, and trust me when I say- you won’t be disappointed with the designerly aesthetic.

Spoiler alert! The above tile is my backsplash tile. I positioned it on the floor to get a feel for what it would look like on the wall- and I’m VERY excited. It’s Bedrosians Cloe subway tile in grey and I’m obsessed with the organic shape and lovely texture. I think it’s going to look really great with our moody cabinetry. I love that I can get hand-made, designer tile from Spain at my local Lowe’s! Their selection continues to impress me each time I visit my store.
That brings me to my other favorite classic backsplash options- first up subway tile, since we’re already on that topic…
You can’t go wrong with classic subway tile for a backsplash. If you want to mix it up- opt for a unique size, shape, bevel, color, or texture. Here are the ones I found appealing in the store:
01: elida ceramica harmony white subway tile // 02: elida ceramica barrio square tile // 03: anatolia marble subway tile // 04: american olean union view shell white brick mosaic // 05: bedrosians cloe grey subway deco tile
You guys know I’m a mega fan of marble mosaics for a backsplash. They feel high-end, sophisticated, and textural. I almost went with #4, pictured below, for our kitchen renovation.
01: american olean smoke white chevron marble mosaic // 02: venatino polished basketweave marble mosaic // 03: american olean refined white brick marble // 04: anatolia tile carrara grigio brick marble mosaic // 05: anatolia tile carrara pinwheel // 06: american olean white sage mosaic tile // 07: allen + roth white marble mosaic // 08: gbi tile & stone inc mattone calatta
Lots of people don’t expect a shapely tile to look classic or stay in style, but the following do just that! The arabesque shape has been around for centuries and adding a pop of pattern to your backsplash is never a bad thing, in my book.
Hopefully this post helped to provide some inspiration if you’re also in the market for backsplash tile. I have a lot of great samples in my collection now and am looking forward to using them in other areas of our home, too! Questions, comments? I love chatting in the comment section below!
