The plethora of materials now available for kitchen and bathroom backsplashes means it’s more difficult to pick the right one for your home. The plain tile backsplash is a dated design option and many are now visual pieces in their own right.
In this post, Handyman Connection of Matthews discusses four design tips to consider when picking a new backsplash for your kitchen and bath.
1. Countertop and Backsplash Are Partners
Remember that the countertop and backsplash are ultimately linked in a design standpoint. As such, you shouldn’t treat your backsplash as a separate entity from the countertop. On the contrary, it’s the extension. This doesn’t mean the backsplash should look just like the countertop, but that their design complements each other.
2. Establish Your Personal Style
Determine and establish the personal style you want for your backsplash. Should the backsplash appear traditional, transitional or contemporary? Consider your home’s architectural style. For baths and kitchens with a traditional look, the backsplash should sport the same aesthetic.
3. Consider Glass a Backsplash Material
Glass is the most striking backsplash material and really makes a statement, so keep it in mind when you’re looking for a new backsplash. The glass doesn’t need to take up the entire backsplash area; many contemporary backsplashes have glass mosaics mixed in with metal, stone and the ever-popular mother of pearl.
4. Patterns Make a Difference
Patterned backsplashes are now available thanks to new technology. The most popular is the water jet pattern “water-cut” into stone or glass materials. Installing a patterned backsplash may be all you need to revitalize the look and feel of your kitchen and bath.
