To start with, most glass tile backsplashes are going to be put in by hand. This is because each piece of glass need to be put in manually. This does increase the overall cost of the project. If you are short on cash, this might not be the best option that you can use. Also you will need to find someone that is reliable that does good work. Before starting a job, make sure the professional shows you some pictures of examples of work from the past. Alternatively, you can install the glass yourself if you know how which can make the cost of the project a bit lower.
First of all let me explain what a backsplash is and how that is definitely one thing that you should have in your kitchen. The kitchen backsplash is an area between the countertop and the end of the kitchen cabinets. This area is very much prone to water splashes or if the food is being cooked then a lot of stains can easily go on the wall behind the cooking gas. That is why in fact the name backsplash originated as these areas would normally get dirty while cooking.
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.
The best way to find out whether a tile is both beautiful in your house and suitable for use in your kitchen is to take home a few sample tiles. Put them on your countertop and lean them against your old backsplash. Leave them there for a few days, and use your kitchen as you normally do. You‘ll soon discover which tiles can stand up to the wear and tear of your family‘s life! Even more important, you‘ll be sure how the tile looks under your kitchen lights and next to your cabinets.
