Your backsplash is an important detail in your kitchen. It’s often overlooked during the initial sketching and design step, but it’s also important.
A well-chosen backsplash makes your space look charming and protects the wall from accidental spills and splashes.
The good news about it, is that you don’t need a professional contractor and you can select by yourself, as long as you know the basics about the materials and available options.
When choosing material it’s important to keep your budget in mind. Deciding on a specific budget will narrow down your options right away. Unique and complex designs are more expensive than basic options.
The only thing you shouldn’t be saving on is your grout – as this is what keeps your tiles on the wall, and it’s better to choose the best quality grout. It also comes in many different colors, and can be a great way to add some brightness to the walls.
Naturally, a larger space requires higher expenses than a smaller one. The places that require coverage are typically areas above the sink and stove and some areas on the counter where you will be doing cutting and mixing.
When considering different tile options for your backsplash, keep in mind the design of your countertops and cabinets.
If you are absolutely in love with your quartz countertops, then maybe it’s a good idea to use it on the walls as well? If using the same type of quartz is not in your budget, go with a similar material.
You can go wrong with a kitchen that is all white. It looks stylish and classy. If that hue dominates in your design, go with a similar in style tiles for the sleek classy look. On the other hand, if your cabinets and everything else is white or neutral, it’s a good idea to add a little brightness by choosing more contrasting hues for the walls.
Black or dark grey quartz countertops and white cabinets also add modern feel to your place. In this case lighter shades and colors above the counters will work well.
If your countertop is dark grey or contains a veining pattern, then use tiles that are the same in pattern and color.
