The nice thing about using tile as a backspash is that it comes is a huge variety of sizes, colors, textures and shapes. It is even possible to have custom painted tiles to match any theme of design. In addition a tile backsplash can be easy to install, as well as easy to clean. Many design experts say that you should consider keeping it simple by choosing the same tile for your kitchen backsplash as you've chosen for the floor - just in a smaller size.
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.
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.
