What is the latest trend for backsplash in the kitchen, I'm ready to install something and I don't want it to be outdated.

Pressed metal could be awesome here! Or you could do subway tiles, or even a glass splash back.

Go with fashion not fad. Latest trends tend to outdate themselves. To add some height to the room maybe run some rectangular subway tiles vertically. Grey and very light blue with white would compliment the countertops.

I would go with glass subway tiles .. either a blue gray, light gray or white/cream (color of cabs)

Subway tile is never outdated. Get it in gray for a timeless look.

Have you seen the backside painted glass or plexi. I was going to try this but haven't decided yet?

Colour Theory
Take a look at some of the fantastic mosaics that are available for backsplash. Maybe look for one that combines glass with marble &/or porcelain. The 'listelle' shape is pretty cool...that means the long skinny strips)
Multi colour could include white, silvery grey & even some stainless!

I agree with "fashion, not fad" and also love their color palette: light blue, dove grey, and white. I also agree that subway tiles are timeless. The first 2 photos I attached have steel subway tiles, thus combining both ideas. I also saw a backsplash with combined both the glass and the metal subway tiles. The other thing I have noticed while recently walking model homes for a new home (see shower pic) were the Listelle-shaped slate tiles. You can mix the 3 colors into this material also. Good luck!

Your kitchen is beautiful. I agree a light green or light grey glass subway tile would be beautiful.

Keep backsplash simple. A stainless subway is nice.

If you can afford glass subway tile it looks lovely. I would like it in our kitchen but over here in the UK you're looking at £200 a square metre which is out of our budget. Here mosaic has had its day and can look dated but that might not be the case in the US. Normal ceramic subway tile is classic and appeals to a wide market if you sell.

The backsplash is the last thing we need to do in our kitchen remodel. We are probably going to put up a glass backsplash. We like the simplicity and the ease of cleaning.

What a lovely kitchen! You might consider a subway tile with a crackled glass finish, it will add a little bit of depth and dimension to the tile.

I love the look of back painted glass. I'm not sure how much more expensive it is than subway tile but it is subtle and easy to maintain and in my opinion timeless.

The designer at the place we bought out cabinets is the one that first mentioned the option. Then I searched Houzz and saw a bunch of examples of it. At $1,200, her quote was a little pricey, I thought. I made some calls, and we can get the glass cut to size for about $400. That would leave painting and installation up to us. To save $800, I think we can do that.
