Glass is quickly making its way to the top when it comes to kitchen backsplashes. Although granite and slate are still in the lead, glass has surpassed ceramic tile. In NKBA’s Top Kitchen and Bath Trends for 2012 press release, they said “Although glass remains a niche material for kitchen countertops, it’s been recently used by more than half of kitchen designers as a backsplash material, rising from 41% [of kitchen designers] a year ago to 52% now. This trails only natural stone tile at 60% . . .”
Whether it be glass sticks, mosaics, 4 inch by 12 inch, 12 inch by 12 inch, or custom glass patterns, they can bring a sleek contemporary feel to the space. They are scratch resistant and easy to clean, making them a suitable kitchen backsplash option.
