Will be working on bar backsplash next week and needed some ideas. I'm looking for something different than the same kitchen backsplash stuff. Any ideas or pics people want to share?

Don't go to Home Depot or Lowes, etc. Find a large specialty tile store near you that has a large showroom and selection. They will have tons more options and ideas. Best movie I ever made for my tile.

I used a stacked stone backsplash to get a very different look than what a kitchen tile would be. Since you're not generally "splashing" on it, definitely don't need the practical / easy-to-clean aspects...

Check out Houzz! (App too)
Tons of pictures on there.

And plus one for a tile store. I did my kitchen with some unique looking mosaic tiles that had glass and stone mix. A little more expensive but the look is amazing. IMO

I'm probably going to be using these 3D tiles for my backsplash... Or if I get daring for a whole accent wall.

Those are very cool - just be careful that you don't pick something too "stylish" that may look dated a long time before you're ready to remodel... That said I really do like the wave patterns in that collection.
