The colour and style of your countertops as well as the overall style of your kitchen will help you to decide which backsplash to choose. You can choose from a tile backsplash, stainless steel backsplash, ceramic backsplash, granite backsplash, and more. The backsplash is available in a variety of colours, so you can get something that really complements the style and decor of the room. The cost of the backsplash will vary depending on how much of your wall surface you need to be covered, which material you choose for your backsplash, and where you buy the backsplash. However, you can get some very good deals these days, so you should be able to find a backsplash style and colour that fits in with your kitchen decor and appearance perfectly without having to go over your budget.
A new design trend in kitchen backspashes is glass. Textured glass tiles are usually installed between the cabinets and counters. Glass is easy to clean and scratch resistant.
Spills, splatters, leaks and falls mostly happen in the kitchen. You definitely don't want to stain your kitchen walls because of these. Staining the walls will require you to clean and scrub them when you could be resting already or tasting your delectable food. Kitchen backsplash does not only protect your wall from splatters of oil but it will also serve as decoration and add style to the kitchen.
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!
Backsplashes are the most exposed place in your kitchen, in danger of getting dirty from all the food stains from all the kitchen activities. Sometimes, you just get discouraged when you see the stains and the thought of having to clean them all up. You sometimes forget to clean them thus adding to more buildup, and, before you know it, your backsplash is the ugliest spot in the kitchen.
