Your Kitchen: Great Backsplashes For Wood Cabinets

The kitchen backsplash selection is often left to the very end of a remodel. Don’t let it be an afterthought. Use this opportunity to personalize your space and bring together all the elements of your kitchen.After my last idea book on tile backsplashes, I received many requests for examples with wood cabinets. For those of you considering wood, keep in mind that natural materials have a color of their own, so you need to identify the undertones of the wood with its finish. Bring a sample with you when shopping for tile.

Here are some inspiring photos to get your creative juices flowing.
