The backsplash is the section of the wall in the kitchen between the counter and upper kitchen cabinets. The color and texture of the backsplash contribute to both functionality and the décorof your kitchen.
The backsplash in a kitchen protects your wall from splashes, water stains, and other damage.
If you are on a budget and you want to remodel your kitchen, or even just give it a fresh update, installing a backsplash is easy, useful and budget-friendly.
The two most popular styles of kitchen backsplashes are ceramic or stainless steel. You can easily update, refresh, and change the look of your kitchen by installing a new backsplash.
Often, the backsplash is installed at the same time as the countertops, but that is not necessary. You can use the backsplash as an accent area which covers only a small part of the space, or the backsplash can cover the entire wall area along the counter. Use the backsplash as a focal point around your cooking areas, selecting a style that attracts the eyes toward your stove area or above the sink.
If you want to make a small kitchen look bigger, select a light-colored, neutral backsplash to wrap around the entire kitchen. Your entire backsplash does not have to be identical. You can use complementary designs and colors to give a fresh, contemporary feel to the room.
A ceramic tile backsplash is easy to install and maintain. Backsplash tiles can also be porcelain, marble, glass, stone, or cement. Travertine, a type of stone similar to limestone, can create a striking, neutral-toned backsplash. Porcelain tiles give the appearance of marble at an economical price. Another popular backsplash style is the mosaic. So many choices! Come in and browse to find the perfect selection for your home.
To understand how much backsplash you need to buy for your home, measure the height and width of the area you want your backsplash to cover. Bring the dimensions with you when you come to the store. Usually, ceramic tiles measure 4.25” x 4.25”. Other sizes for popular styles of backsplash are 3” x 6” and even 12” x 12” for mosaic tiles. With your dimensions in hand, you’ll be able to calculate what you need as you make your selection.
