Why Have A Kitchen Backsplash?
Have you ever wondered about the purpose of kitchen backsplashes? Basically, they are a vertical extension to your countertop and they are meant to protect your walls from water splashes. They also protect the walls behind your sink from potential water damage. Water damage can cause mildew problems.
What is the best way to choose a Kitchen Backsplash?
Backsplashes are not only functional they are also stylish. A Kitchen Backspash brings the whole kitchen design together very much like a necklace and earrings are the perfect finishing touches to complete an outfit. But, like jewelry, the backsplash can be a very personal design that can range from clean to tradition to contemporary. Remember that the flooring, countertops, cabinets, and even the fixtures should all coordinate and of course match your backsplash.
What type of material do you want to use?
A backsplash is no longer limited to any one type of material. There are glass tiles and porcelain tiles that come in every color and sparkle in the rainbow. But, you may consider using tin, mirrors or even recycled materials. And, don’t forget about granite, marble, and quartz which come in all sorts of colors and can even be your countertops too. Don’t forget that some materials are easier to clean than others so make sure that you choose the type of material that you can maintain.
What Color do you want?
Now that you have chosen the material that you want to use in your kitchen backsplash, it is time to choose a color. You can be bold with a bright blue or you can be calm with a light cream. You can even do a color and texture combination. If you are having trouble setting on a color, bring the samples to your kitchen and live with them. You may fall in love with that bright blue or realize that the light cream is the better choice.
