Danyiela Theissen. Kitchen Backsplash. November 12th , 2017.
Kitchen backsplash tiles are the perfect place to explore -- and experiment with -- all the many wonderful kinds of tile now available. Because the backsplash is a small area with high visibility, you can really explore the decorative possibilities of ceramic, stone, glass, and metal tiles. You won‘t have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful design.
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.
Traditional backsplashes use marbles, chipped tiles in earth colors, wood and other materials that would place the ”classic look” into your kitchen. These are the homey backsplashes that make you feel that you are comfortable in your own kitchen. There are certain themes which are used when designing simple kitchen backsplash ideas. People can go as far as Mediterranean themes which use color and play with it. Usually, colors like blue and green are used for this look. Tiles may be used for accents in the kitchen while keeping the rest simple.
When selecting a kitchen backsplash, it is important to consider the kinds of fixtures, not appliances, you have in your kitchen. Since the appliances will be replaced over time, they are less essential to bear in mind. The fixtures, being more permanent items in the kitchen, are important to remember. A tile or tint of glass may match a paint color in the room, but if it clashes with the finish on a light or cabinet door fixture, the work will not look professionally done.
