A kitchen backsplash is a piece that protects your walls from dirt and spills while adding interest and appeal to the kitchen and highlighting its style. There are brick, hex, subway and many other tile backsplashes, glass and metal backsplashes and many other options that can be implemented. Today, however, we’re taking a closer look at tiles, but not just tiles – herringbone tile backsplashes. The herringbone pattern is perhaps one of the most timeless things you can try for your kitchen. Yes, it may not be a huge trend, but it is a classic!
What are the benefits of a herringbone backsplash?
A herringbone backsplash brings more interest and pattern to your kitchen and easily fits many styles: modern, rustic, contemporary, Scandinavian and so on. Herringbone backsplashes can also add texture if you use cement tiles or glossy tiles, for example. Let’s find out in detail what types of tiles fit such a back wall.

What tiles can be used for a herringbone backsplash?
A herringbone tile backsplash requires a special type of tile – thin tiles clad with this pattern, as it will be difficult or unrealistic to clad such a pattern with other types of tiles. These tiles can be of different sizes and widths depending on the desired effect. If you want an unobtrusive backsplash, choose smaller sizes, and if you want to make a statement, go for oversized thin tiles. Try using cement tiles rather than just regular tiles to add texture to your kitchen – jazzing up a neutral kitchen with a splashback like this is a brilliant idea! You can also highlight the backsplash with contrasting grout or make it more invisible with matching grout. Get inspired!
