Adryana Toscani. Kitchen Backsplash. December 22nd , 2017.
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.
Kitchen backsplash tiles are just plain beautiful! Tiles bring brightness to a kitchen. Of course, paint can do that too, but there‘s something about the gleam of a polished tile that paint just can‘t match. Tiles reflect light. Many kitchens don‘t have enough natural light. Besides that, most kitchens are used frequently at night. Most dual-career families aren‘t home in the day on weekdays, so their kitchens truly need to have good light. It‘s certainly possible to create a well-lit workspace with spotlights and under-the-counter lights. That won‘t make a welcoming room, though -- and after spending the day at work, people want to cook dinner in a welcoming space! Tiles make a kitchen welcoming.
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.
It‘s important to consider how easy a tile is to clean when you‘re planning to use it in your kitchen. Unglazed tiles have a beautiful texture, but they are more likely to stain than glazed tiles. Stone tiles are also quite porous. Don‘t worry, though! Tiles can be sealed to make them suitable for use as kitchen backsplash tiles. This is a great place to splurge on a more expensive choice. You get a lot of bang for your buck with kitchen backsplash tiles! The area to be covered is quite small, but it makes a huge difference in the look and feel of your entire kitchen. A little luxury here will make the entire room feel luxurious.
