The most common type of kitchen backsplash is the kitchen tiles. Tiles have several styles, size, materials and designs you can choose from. There are glass tiles, natural stone tiles, mosaic tiles and porcelain tiles. Choose a material that will match your countertop. If your countertop's color is neutral, choose a backsplash that will give accent to the whole kitchen. The mosaic tiles can also be a decorative element in your wall. If you don't know how to make a design yourself, you can buy pre-made mosaics that are ready for installations.
In addition to providing your kitchen walls with protection the backsplash also adds to the decor of the room, which is why it is important to choose the right colour, style, and material when choosing your backsplash. Often the material and colour for the backsplash is the same as that used for the countertops, but this doesn't have to be the case, and you can choose a colour or material that is better suited to your needs and preferences.
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.
