Renovating your kitchen is an exciting opportunity. You can customize many details such as the backsplash of your kitchen. There are colors, designs, and different materials to pick from. Explore the possibilities and see how you can design the perfect kitchen backsplash in your home.

The Kitchen Backsplash

A backsplash is an important detail to have in your kitchen. It is an opportunity for a splash of color, or it can blend in with your existing counter. No matter what style you are looking for, its purpose is the most important factor. The backsplash is there to be an easy clean-up with any cooking splashes, spills, or accidents.


It all begins with what you want to make your backsplash out of. There are glass, ceramic, porcelain, marble, or stone tiles. These are traditional materials that are hardy and easy to wash, as needed. Traditional tiles as these can come in many shapes from square, round, rectangle, and more. You can also choose from a peel and stick variety that can come in any color and patterned design for easy installation. These can be made of vinyl, composite material, or PVC.

How to Install

First remove the original backsplash and sand down the wall above the countertop. Your backsplash, whether a peel and stick or traditional tiles should be installed along the length of the countertop first to make sure they are flush. Continue to apply them against the wall up and away from the counter.

There are many backsplashes to choose from. Make a statement or match the rest of the room for a look of harmony. See what styles works the best for you and begin planning your budget. With these tips, enjoy the look and usefulness of your new kitchen backsplash in no time.
