Castorama Another must-see of the year in decoration: marble. We love it for its nobility and its brilliance but its price does not allow to play it throughout the house. The solution ? Tiles that perfectly imitate marble to dress a modern and elegant kitchen. It will fit as well in a white kitchen, in tone on tone, as in a kitchen in natural wood, for a very Scandinavian look.
All black and white graphic tiles
Leroy Merlin To create a graphic atmosphere in the kitchen, we hasten to install a splashback in black and white tiles with geometric patterns. For more lightness, we alternate a plain tile and another decorated. You can also bring the motif in a frieze and on a single line.
Hexagonal tiles that give rhythm
Castorama Tired of rectangular or square tiles? Opt for a very decorative hexagonal tile. We choose it in shades of gray or in very soft tones, like sky blue and pale pink. The honeycomb effect punctuates the wall and transforms it into a real decorative element in the kitchen.
Leroy Merlin Alternative to tiling laid in width, we opt for a vertical laying, which will change habits and create a much more modern wall. We choose plain tiles, all identical or different colors, as here with a palette that plays on the subtlety of the soft colors.
Small tiles for a vibrant optical effect
Castorama In a kitchen that lacks relief, we fall for a tiled wall splashback made of tiny shiny tiles. Their advantage? Hang the light to create a vibrant effect on the wall. And don't worry about laying, if the tiles are small, the tiles are sold in standard format!
A very creative patchwork credenza
Leroy Merlin A colorful patchwork splashback will instill cheerfulness and freshness in the kitchen. To create a splashback that is both modern and colorful, opt for rectangular tiles, installed horizontally. On the color side, we limit ourselves to three so as not to overload the wall.

Cement tiles in splashback
Ceramic counter Cement tiles do not make a comeback except on the entrance floor. We also like them in the splashback, in the kitchen. The splashback then becomes a worked wall covering, as decorative as it is practical. We really like this look in a kitchen that plays with light and nuanced colors, such as greige, ivory or chalk.
Large slate tiles
Castorama If you are looking for contemporary tiles to install on the wall of a modern kitchen, opt for large anthracite gray and matte tiles. The slate aspect brings material to the wall while the large format unifies and lightens. An ideal choice for a splashback that is both discreet and elegant.
