Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
Wallpapering kitchen backslashes can dress up a kitchen with very little work especially with pre-pasted wallpaper this will be a lot easier to apply. You will find that with a small area for the backsplash the job shouldn't take very much time to complete. Just make sure that you choose wallpaper that is washable so that spattering from cooking and splashes can be removed.
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.
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.
