Looking for some inspiration for your next kitchen or bathroom backsplash project? With our wide selection of natural stone, porcelain tiles, glass tiles and listelles, you may feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start. But don’t worry! We’re here to help! We recommend several resources to get your creative energy flowing:

Backsplash Inspiration Program

We’ve put 48 backsplash designs in one handy booklet that you can download and print out to share with your clients or designers. Every photo includes a key to what Arizona Tile materials were used in the design so you can quickly replicate the backsplash in your kitchen or bath. Or you can modify our designs using any other products in our collection. Our booklet isn’t just for backsplashes, either. Our ideas can also be used when designing walls or floors, too.

Online Resources for Backsplash Ideas

Google and Bing Image Search

Try searching for kitchen and bathroom backsplash design ideas by using the specialized image search features at Google Images and Bing’s Image Search. You can narrow your results by adding the types of materials you want to use in your backsplash. For example, by typing in “marble backsplashes for kitchens” you will see thousands of photos to inspire you. Google and Bing will even prompt you with more detailed or related search terms so you can expand or narrow your search results – taking you on a photo tour of kitchens and baths to spark ideas for your design project.


Flickr is a photo sharing tool where amateur photographers upload their photos. Using Flickr, you will have a chance to see pictures of real kitchens (rather than stylized showrooms). The focus is more on the photo and camera used, and less on the content, but Flickr is worth checking out for inspiration for your next project. For example, take a look at these photos of a kitchen with a slate backsplash with listelle work on the wall behind the stove. Or check out this photo of a kitchen backsplash installation in progress. Be creative when typing in search terms in Flickr’s search box to see a variety of photos from around the world.


After navigating to, simply type in the term “stone backsplash” to see what kinds of stone backsplash designs are trending right now. You can easily customize your search terms to reflect the project you are working on and view even more inspirational photos. Try searching for “bathroom backsplash”, “glass backsplash” or “mosaic backsplash.” Pinterest is so popular with people uploading pictures every second that you can search for the same terms every day and see new images for new inspiration.
