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.
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.
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.
