Mosaics and murals in kitchen look good when teamed with countertops of subtle pattern and color. Good backsplash color complements cabinets as well as the countertops. You can even highlight them with lights. Dimmer switches with low voltage lighting work excellent.
Another idea to protect your wall is to paint it. The use of paint as kitchen backsplash is the most inexpensive and requires less effort. You can choose a color that is contrasting to the rest of the walls in the kitchen or a bold color to give emphasis. Do not worry on staining the painted wall because there are paints that are specially made for the kitchen. Choose a semi-gloss paint that is resistant to food residue.
If you are having challenges visualizing, WAIT to pick out the colors of your backsplash. I have so many customers that just can't visualize how everything will look when it's all finished. And, it's no wonder because when you are redoing your whole kitchen, virtually every element is changing. How often do you redo your kitchen? I'm guessing not often. Of course for someone like me who does this all the time, it comes more naturally, but for a regular customer, most of them need some assistance. From a sequencing standpoint, you'll want to get floors, cabinets and countertops done all sequentially. And, while your kitchen is out of commission at this point, once those countertops are installed and sinks/appliances reconnected to water and/or gas lines, your kitchen is operational again. If you need to, you can delay a bit before picking finalizing the backsplash, especially if this makes you feel more comfortable in your decision. I have many customers that opt for this solution. It just gives them piece of mind and more confidence in their choices.
