Deciding on what colors to choose for your kitchen walls, and what appliances to get can often be a challenge, but when it comes to choosing a kitchen backsplash the options are limitless and can feel like a daunting task. Whether you are choosing a backsplash strictly for function or design, or you’d look a mixture of the two and still fit within your design style you could be wondering how to tackle this kitchen design challenge.
If you are ready to tackle on a do it yourself project of installing your own backsplash or you are going to hire a professional, here are tips to help you decide.
Choose a backsplash that coordinates with your kitchen:
Every kitchen has its own unique style or voice that speaks to the heart of the home. Whether you have a traditional, contemporary, eclectic or transitional design your backsplash should “follow suit”. This means, create the same ambiance with your backsplash. Tile manufacturer’s now offer designer lines that speak directly to consumers who want a one-of-a-kind look. Look for non-traditional mosaics, and tiles that look handcrafted or custom.
While you have to spend a lot on your kitchen backsplash but you also don’t want to see your backsplash in all your neighbor’s homes either!
