Kitchens are the heart of your home, and your stove takes center stage, so be sure to highlight it with a beautiful backsplash. That’s why we’re rounding up our favorite backsplash behind stove ideas.

The possibilities are endless, from modern homes with clean white tiles to luxury kitchens with stainless steel and marble backsplash. When designing your kitchen, it’s essential to understand your style and incorporate your appliances, countertops, and backsplash to meet your vision.
