Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
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.
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.
Kitchen backsplash keeps your walls dry and gives them a dramatic look. Well maintained backsplash last for years. They are easy to install, clean and are durable. They add a lot of texture to your flat and dull wall space.
There are many things that are essential to any kitchen for practical reasons as much as anything else. The kitchen backsplash, for example, not only adds to the decor and appearance of your kitchen but is also used to protect your walls from accidents such as water splashes or splashing from things such as oil. We use a lot of liquid in the kitchen, from water and cooking oil to opening bottles of wine or pop, and it is all too easy for accidents to happen and for liquid to be splashed up the walls. The backsplash is able to protect your walls from this sort of damage, as any spills and splashes can be easily wiped away.
