A kitchen backsplash is an important detail in any kitchen. Luckily, it is a piece with lots of design freedom such as choosing from colors, materials, and style. In this blog, explore some of your options and see how you can make that splash in your kitchen’s design.
Kitchen backsplashes are the design running along and behind your counters in the kitchen. They are there to literally make cleaning up after a spill or splash from cooking and can help to protect the wall. As you look at your options, different materials are easy to clean, some are more durable, and others are decorative, so it all depends on your personal needs.
Classic backsplashes made of tiles from porcelain, ceramic, stone, marble, and glass tiles will be your most expensive yet durable options. These classic looks can be an instant favorite. Stainless steel is also an option as well.
Tiles come in a variety of shapes:
If you are on a budget or want a simple installation, peel and stick tiles, or sheets can be easily applied. You can also skip the backsplash and create a border with wallpaper or chic chalkboard paint, but these options will not protect your walls from any accidents in the kitchen.
After the old backsplash has been removed, the wall will need to be cleaned and sanded where the new backsplash will be. Start by working along the edge of the countertop so your tiles are flush, then work out, up, and away from the counter.
With these tips, once you have your ideal kitchen backsplash in mind, enjoy picking out the one that ties your room together with the best or the one that matches your personality with a pop of color. No matter what, your kitchen renovations will be done in no time.
