Kitchens can be one of the most difficult places to decorate in the home, no matter what size they are. All the cabinets and appliances make that space more for practicality than decorative. So when you don’t have wall space for those food prints and you’ve already painted the cabinets, it’s time to think about new ways to put some life into your kitchen. Enter the patterned backsplash. There will always be a little space on the wall between the countertop and the cabinet. Even the tiniest kitchens have it. So make the most of that space and fill it with a pattern that will put a smile on your face. Check out these 15 fun backsplash patterns that your kitchen definitely needs.
