How to choose a Kitchen Backsplash?

How to choose a Kitchen Backsplash?

Many homeowners take the time to plan their countertops, appliances, and kitchen cabinets, but they forget about the backsplash. There are so many elements to consider to choose a style that will complement your kitchen. This review will help you with the different styles of kitchen backsplash and tell you how to choose the right one for your home.
What are the different types of kitchen backsplash?

  • Ceramic or Porcelain Tile
    This type of kitchen backsplash is one of the most common backsplashes there are. These tiles, can come in different sizes or colors. You can arrange the tiles vertically, select the grout color, tile color, or even use mosaic tiles to style your backsplash. White ceramic or porcelain tile are a very popular trend, they create a nice minimal look.
  • Natural Stone
    Not a fan of tile? You can consider to use natural stone like granite, quartz or marble. This creates a very dramatic look with elaborated designs and patterns. They are also easy to clean, especially when you select granite or a low maintenance stone plus incorporate sealing it.
  • Glass Tile
    Similarly with ceramic tile, this backsplash offers a variety of color to match any look you have or want. Also, it can be cut to size and pieced together as a colorful mosaic tile look or even be a subway tile style. This backsplash is an excellent tile backsplash option.
  • Stainless Steel
    It’s used in professional kitchens for a reason! Stainless steel tile is maybe not the classiest-looking kitchen backsplash material in the world, however it’s incredibly durable and very easy to clean. As well, it’s great around hot pots and pans.
    Choosing the right backsplash material
    Collecting the right information will help you to choose the right kitchen backsplash. Here are some tips:
  • Height
    The “standard” height for a kitchen backsplash is 4 inches. Nowadays, a lot of people raise the backsplash to the height of their wall kitchen cabinets, leaving no wall exposed to splashes or damage. It’s a smart idea!
  • Countertops
    It’s important that your countertops and backsplash work in harmony together. Choose a backsplash color that complements the countertop to contrast for one of them. For example, if you have quartz countertops with strong veining, you’d want to go for a simple kitchen backsplash. On the other hand, if you’ve got a plain white countertop, then you might choose a vibrant tile backsplash in an accent color.
  • Focal points

Having a focal point to a room is one of the basic tenets of interior design. You need to decide whether you want to make your backsplash the focal point or not. A backsplash can actually make a brilliant focal point, especially if the rest of the space is minimal. On the other hand, if your kitchen already has one or more focal points, it’s probably best to opt for a minimal backsplash design that doesn’t draw the eye.

  • Final Considerations
    Though different materials have different styles and price points to consider, you also need to think about your lifestyle. How do you cook? What types of meals do you prepare? Do you create a lot of moisture, splashes, and mess when you’re cooking? Do you use the stove more than the oven?
