Choosing a Kitchen Backsplash

HomeBlogChoosing a Kitchen Backsplash

When it comes to designing your kitchen, one of the most overwhelming decisions you need to make is choosing a kitchen backsplash. Having a backsplash is important in a kitchen because it’s a very high-moisture area with lots of grease. You want to protect your walls, and the best way to do that is with a kitchen backsplash.

Choosing a Kitchen Backsplash

There are many options when it comes to kitchen backsplashes. The classic and most popular option is tile. If you’ve spent any time looking at backsplashes, you know that there are vast multitudes of tile backsplash choices! There are small tiles, large tiles, rectangular or hexagon, square or circular… the possibilities are endless! You also need to decide on grout colors. Some people like a white grout, while others prefer a darker grout. Laying the tile in unique patterns, like a herringbone design, is a great way to add another attractive dimension. There is no right or wrong when it comes to kitchen backsplash tile design and layout. It’s all up to you and your personal taste and preference.

Another kitchen backsplash option is to use your countertop material. This is becoming more and more popular, especially among homeowners who prefer a clean, minimalist look. Whether it be granite, quartz, or even marble, you can carry it right up the wall for a beautiful, seamless appearance.

You want to make sure your backsplash complements the rest of your kitchen design. If you have busy countertops with lots of pattern and movement, you’ll probably want to choose a solid-color backsplash that blends into the background. If you have white or light-colored countertops with very little pattern or movement, you might want to choose a backsplash that makes a statement. There are so many colors and patterns to choose from. If you have an all-white or neutral kitchen, a colored backsplash is a fun way to add a little bit of contrast and design.
