Michellye Foerster. Kitchen Backsplash. November 10th , 2017.
A kitchen backsplash doesn‘t get the same kind of wear-and-tear that a mudroom floor, for example, gets every day. Backsplash tiles don‘t need to be as durable as many others. You won‘t have to limit your choices to the toughest and most durable tiles on the market. Feel free to experiment with materials and colors that you‘ve never considered before. Don‘t be afraid to try art tiles and handmade tiles, if you see some that you like. A really wide range of tiles can be used for backsplashes!
Mixing different shapes and sizes of kitchen backsplash tile can create a wonderful composition, such as a landscape surrounded by a border. The possibilities are endless with the use of shapes such as hexagons, octagons, squares, diamonds and rectangles. Bas-relief tiles can be used as an elegant border to any design.
The major difference between Roman tile and that which you can have in your home today is price, style and ease of installation. In Roman times, only the richest could afford to inlay tile in their walls. Styles two millennia ago were limited to the imagination of the installer, and the installation took a very long time. Breaking a tile sent you back to the kiln, too.
When designing and selecting materials for your new kitchen backsplash, consider functionality along with beauty. Maintenance is a turnoff for many homeowners. Once installed, they want it to take care of themselves. Materials such as ceramic or porcelain tile, stainless steel, glass and stone can be crafted into beautiful backsplashes that require little or no maintenance. Altering how an older backsplash appears or designing one from scratch serves as a quick and efficient method of brightening up your kitchen without extensive work.
