Backsplash Tile

Are you staring at your kitchen wondering if you should refresh or revamp it? Before you start budgeting for a full remodel, consider installing tile backsplashes first! The beauty and design options of ceramic, porcelain, and marble tiles are endless.  A new design-oriented backsplash is sure to catch anyone’s eye! Start brainstorming now for your kitchen backsplash ideas and follow these tips!

Budget. While installing a backsplash will save you quite a bit compared to a full remodel, it is still important to note that tile can differ in price.

  • Mix & Match: You can use mix and match techniques with solid colors for a dramatic backsplash or complementing tiles to make bold, more expensive tile stand out more. 
  • Focal Points: Use focal points like above the stove to create an impactful backsplash while using less expensive tile in other areas in order to save.  
  • Rotate: Lastly, try rotating run of the mill subway tile backsplash to create a more sophisticated and modern look.

Consider your color. Are you gearing more toward using an accent color or sticking with a clean, soft neutral tone? Either choice can add just as much character! You also want to think about the color of your countertop as this is instrumental in choosing bold and bright versus a more mellow color.

Material. Choosing a color, material, and even pattern go hand in hand when considering your options and working within your budget parameters. Our team of consultants can assist you with some of these areas to help narrow down your options.

Backsplash Proportions. Don’t forget about the importance of backsplash height as it has to end somewhere, but it’s up to you exactly where that is. Visually, do you want the backsplash to meet the bottom of your cabinetry? If you want more tile, you can extend it to areas where there are no cabinets such as over the stove or above the sink.
