11. Slim Line Copper Kitchen Backsplash

Traditional, aged copper that will patina with age is generally more expensive and requires a fair bit of maintenance to upkeep in a kitchen.

In an area such as a kitchen which comes into contact with regular moisture and dirt, it can be a difficult metal to maintain, despite it looking incredible.

If this does bother you, glass tiles, laminate or lacquered finishes are the best option to consider in a kitchen as you still get the traditional look of copper, without the maintenance it demands. Which copper kitchen backsplash idea is your favourite?
