A kitchen backsplash doesn't get the same kind of wear-and-tear that a mudroom floor, for example, gets every day. Backsplash tiles don't need to be as durable as many others. You won't have to limit your choices to the toughest and most durable tiles on the market. Feel free to experiment with materials and colors that you've never considered before. Don't be afraid to try art tiles and handmade tiles, if you see some that you like. A really wide range of tiles can be used for backsplashes!
You may opt for a modern design in decorating your backsplash. Materials such as glass, tin, metal, steel and other materials can be used. These are your best bet if you really want a backsplash which will catch attention. These are usually sleek designs that are used in simplicity. Their best asset is the simple designs which they have and how the light colors stand out from the room.
The most common type of kitchen backsplash is the kitchen tiles. Tiles have several styles, size, materials and designs you can choose from. There are glass tiles, natural stone tiles, mosaic tiles and porcelain tiles. Choose a material that will match your countertop. If your countertop's color is neutral, choose a backsplash that will give accent to the whole kitchen. The mosaic tiles can also be a decorative element in your wall. If you don't know how to make a design yourself, you can buy pre-made mosaics that are ready for installations.
Cover your entire backsplash in one solid color. This is good when you have a very busy granite countertop. You simply choose one color that you like, this is usually a neutral tone, and then select the type of tile you want. You can jazz up this solid field of tile by popping in another color or colors sporadically. This breaks up the solid field a little. It only takes a couple of odd colored tiles here and there to really change the overall look.
Wallpapering kitchen backslashes can dress up a kitchen with very little work especially with pre-pasted wallpaper this will be a lot easier to apply. You will find that with a small area for the backsplash the job shouldn't take very much time to complete. Just make sure that you choose wallpaper that is washable so that spattering from cooking and splashes can be removed.
