Think this backsplash is a tile mosaic? Look closer. It's actually fabric covered with glass — so much easier, more affordable and unexpected.

Fabric that is laminated behind glass makes a memorable and fabulous backsplash. Imagine doing this with an heirloom family textile, or to repeat a fabric used on curtains or upholstery elsewhere in the room. Laminated fabrics, usually used for projects like tablecloths, umbrellas and handbags, can also be applied to the wall, but they aren’t appropriate for applications like this unless they’re secured behind glass. I hope some of these ideas have inspired you, and that the next time you need something unusual but brilliant on your wall, you’ll think of textiles.More: Hang a TapestryShow us: Have you created or decorated with handmade textiles?

How about textiles? Here an exotic piece of fabric was laminated between sheets of glass for use as a backsplash.

When a homeowner wanted a seamless backsplash that also had a bold pattern, Incorporated came up with the idea of covering fabric with glass.Now it’s your turn. Upload those photos, floor plans and ideas below.

Soup up a backsplash. Combine florals with a minimalist, modern backdrop, and the effect will be striking without being overpowering.Here, a favorite piece of flowery fabric was cut to size and laminated to create a custom backsplash. As a result, what could have felt like a rather cold kitchen now bursts with character.

Allow for some breathing room. Going wild with an entire room full of mismatched patterns isn’t for the faint of heart. Most folks feel comfortable using bold patterns in small doses. If this is more your speed, make sure your spirited pattern is placed in a prominent location and doesn’t have competing pieces nearby. This backsplash is made of fabric laminated onto glass. Like a piece of artwork, its beauty is emphasized not by what surrounds it, but by what’s not around it. Clean lines and neutral cabinets make this installation shine.

7. Custom backsplash. In easily the most inventive use of fabric that I have come across, this designer encased a yard in glass and called it a backsplash. It’s a brilliant, refreshing way to get a little color and pattern into the kitchen in a totally unexpected way.

Softening hard edges. Frank was a modernist, but he rebelled against some elements of the movement. Whereas later modernists such as Le Corbusier embraced standardized and uniform design, Frank’s textiles were anything but.Here, a sleek kitchen is given a softer twist with a backsplash made is glass-laminated fabric in Frank’s Brazil pattern.
