Choosing Kitchen Backsplash

You’ve chosen your cabinets, countertops, hardware, and maybe even appliances but there is one thing left that should not be overlooked – backsplash.  It is easy for the attention to go to the cabinets and countertops because they are the most expensive components of your kitchen but your backsplash can elevate your overall kitchen design to the next level.  Whether you want your backsplash to be understated and seamlessly blend into the kitchen design or you want it to be an eye-catching showstopper, there are many different backsplash options from which to choose.

There are a few things to consider when choosing kitchen backsplash that will help you narrow down your choice. One common recommendation is to match colors but mix materials or shape.  For example, if you do decide to keep the materials the same, consider choosing a mosaic pattern of that material which will break things up and add some visual interest.  There are tiles in just about every shape and style you can imagine so there is sure to be something that perfectly accentuates the beauty of your cabinets and countertop.

Another popular trend is to install a solid stone slab a backsplash. When you do this the most common choice is the same stone you are using for your countertop but there are no hard and fast rules. And, if you are looking for a more modern touch, you can consider installing a stainless steel backsplash. It is used in professional kitchens for a good reason – it is highly durable and can look really great in a modern kitchen.  Speak to a kitchen remodeling specialist to learn more about how you can use backsplash to compliment and elevate your kitchen remodel.
