Tips on Finding the Right Kitchen or Bath Backsplash Design

Looking to enhance your kitchen space but don’t know where to start? A good place to start is your backsplash area. Let’s face it, backsplashes aren’t just there to protect your walls from excessive moisture and other damage. They are also an important design feature.

Backsplash Design

When it comes to choosing a backsplash design and material, most homeowners think their choices are limited to just tiles. The truth is, there are a vast amount of materials to choose from to help you create the perfect backsplash for your kitchen or bathroom. Handyman Connection® of Boise shares a few tips to help you choose a design:

  • Identify Your Personal Style – It’s easy to get lost in the wide array of material options. To guide you to the right path, you should first determine your personal style. Is it traditional, transitional, contemporary, or something in between? Knowing what your style is will help you break down your major options.
  • Consider the Rest of the Elements – For it to become an effective aesthetic element, your backsplash needs to work well with the rest of your space, such as the floor and countertop. Instead of treating it as a separate entity, be sure to choose a design that will allow it to complement other components in your kitchen or bath.
  • Combine Different Materials – It takes creativity to come up with an interesting backsplash design for your space. You can add interest and character to your design by combining different materials. For example, stone mosaics and glass tiles offer a sleek, cohesive look that is perfect for modern kitchens. For a design that consists only of a single material, you can add a little bit of variety, like experimenting with different shades or installing different sizes of the same material.

Apart from those mentioned, some of the materials you should also consider are metal, marble, copper tile and granite. You can get in touch with our experts at Handyman Connection of Boise for more information about ideal materials for your backsplash. We can also install your dream backsplash without hassle.
