Adryana Toscani. Kitchen Backsplash. November 12th , 2017.
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.
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!
Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
With this evolution in function came the progression of kitchen backsplashes when it comes to variety. From being automatically matched with countertops, they now come in a very wide range of colors, shapes, sizes and patterns that make up for options that allows just anyone to get as creative as they can. Whether you choose to do your shopping online or locally, you‘ll find a great array of collection to choose from. To start on the selection, here are three of the most common materials and their pros and cons.
