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.
Don't worry too much about choosing the perfect tile for your kitchen backsplash the first time you visit a tile showroom. The chances are good that the first tile you admire won't be your final choice, because the variety is so great. Just choose a tile that appeals to you in some way -- color, texture, shape, size, or any combination of those elements. That will be a starting point, while you learn about kitchen backsplash tiles and discover which tiles are best suited to your project.
Not much effort is really needed to create a beautiful kitchen backsplash. Your imagination is your best guide into improving as well as beautifying your simple kitchen backsplash ideas. There are so many choices of designs from which you can get ideas for your backsplash.
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.
You can design your backsplash to unify your kitchen's design. Beautifying it can also add character to your old boring space and turn that into the centrepiece of the kitchen. You may also want to change your kitchen backsplashes in and make your kitchen look brand new. Believe it or not, it helps.
