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.
Contemporary kitchen backsplash offers minimal fuss and allow users to make use of same splash materials as those on countertops. Old world backsplash uses materials such as chipped marbles, jagged cobblestone and worn-down, flaked tiles.
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.
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.
Before designing a kitchen backsplash, keep the overall theme in mind. For instance, contemporary kitchen with old world backsplash would give an odd look. Ensure you seal all stone surfaces with sealers. This would ease the pressure of maintaining them.
