DIY Tips from Professionals: How to Design a Kitchen Backsplash in Rockford, IL & Nearby Cities

Your home’s kitchen backsplash has numerous design options. The size or amount of wall space it takes up, the color, materials, and design all contribute significantly to the overall feel of your kitchen. As you begin to plan out how you want to design your kitchen backsplash, here are some pointers from our professional craftspeople on how to do so.

Wall Space

Who said your backsplash had to be close to the counter? Use an eye-catching design to increase the amount of wall space your backsplash occupies. You have a lot of space to work with from halfway up the wall, up the cupboards, or at ceiling height.

Color Coordinating

Your backsplash can be a bright pop of color, or it can be coordinated with other elements in the room. What is the color or material of your counter or island? Combine it with the backsplash to create a cohesive look.

Color Stripes

It is not necessary to have a single color for your backsplash. What if you kept it simple with white tiling and then added a row of colored tiles for a pop of color?

Stainless Steel

Never worry about splattering again. Stainless steel backsplashes are simple to install and maintain.

Unique Patterns

The backsplash does not have to be a single color or style. To create an interesting style, if you are installing individual tiles, break up the pattern or make it non-repeating.

Tiles are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and styles. Classic traditional tiles made of ceramics, stone, porcelain, and other materials can be used. Affordable composite materials, plastic, or PVC for tiles or peel-and-stick sheets can be found in new materials. The choice is yours with all these options.

With these customizable kitchen backsplash options, you can create the kitchen of your dreams. Do it yourself or hire a professional craftsperson to help you. Finally, you’ll have a brand-new kitchen to enjoy.
