The best way to find out whether a tile is both beautiful in your house and suitable for use in your kitchen is to take home a few sample tiles. Put them on your countertop and lean them against your old backsplash. Leave them there for a few days, and use your kitchen as you normally do. You'll soon discover which tiles can stand up to the wear and tear of your family's life! Even more important, you'll be sure how the tile looks under your kitchen lights and next to your cabinets.
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.
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.
