A tile backsplash is used to cover up the space behind a kitchen sink, bathroom sink, or stove. It helps to protect the wall from food spatter, oil, and more. It’s also a great opportunity to add more design and character to your bathroom or kitchen. There are many different design options and materials that can be used in your new backsplash. Ceramic is one of the most popular materials, but porcelain, natural stone tiles, and glass are also great options. The experts at Floor Coverings International Houston Heights share 4 of their favorite backsplash designs for your Houston Heights home below!

Houston Heights Tile BacksplashCheckerboard

A checkerboard pattern adds a vintage, classic look to a room. Use square tiles in two different colors to create this retro pattern. For a subtle design, try small gray and white tiles. For a more dramatic look, go for larger, black and white tiles.


Chevron is another classic backsplash look that will never go out of style. Use rectangular tiles at an angle to create a chevron design. Go bold with turquoise and white tiles, or create a simple look with colors of similar tones.
