Top 4 Modern Backsplash Ideas For Your Homes

Finding the right modern backsplash ideas for granite countertops can be tricky. You need to find the right fit with your granite when it comes to colour, pattern and material for the backsplash.

Modern Backsplash Ideas

It makes sense to have a new backsplash installed at the same time as your granite countertops.

If you are installing a new granite countertop you should consider it an opportunity to update your backsplash too.

Here are 4 modern backsplash ideas that nicely compliment granite countertops:

Functional Backsplashes

Functional backsplashes are the rage right now when it comes to modern kitchens. Functional backsplashes allow a busy family to use the backsplash as an area to communicate and store information.

How? It’s all about the material you choose:

Magnetic Whiteboard – a magnetic whiteboard as a backsplash gives a clean, cool look to a kitchen with it’s stark white colour.

This contemporary backsplash is multifunctional, allowing a busy family to write notes to each other directly on the backsplash, and even to use magnets to post recipes, school work and to-do lists.

Chalkboard Paint – chalkboard paint is an inexpensive backsplash idea that adds a chiq, clean black accent to any kitchen. Not only is it inexpensive, but chalkboard paint is fun and easy to clean. Simply use chalk to write notes to family members, to-do lists and shopping lists directly on the backsplash.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel backsplashes are a new and modern backsplash option that was once only available in environments like an industrial kitchen.

Now you can have the convenience of a stainless steel backsplash in your own home.

Although stainless steel backsplashes are expensive, there are many benefits to using them including:

  • Versatility – matches almost all types of granite countertops nicely and is especially nice in kitchens that have stainless steel appliances
  • Durability
  • Easy to clean
