Sophiie Sommer. Kitchen Backsplash. November 14th , 2017.
Many people remodel their kitchens have to carefully choose each and every element. One very important part of the overall appearance of the kitchen will be the backsplash behind the counter area. Glass tiles for kitchen backsplashes have become extremely popular. There are a few things that you need to know about glass tiles so that you will get the very best option for your kitchen.
Cover your entire backsplash in one solid color. This is good when you have a very busy granite countertop. You simply choose one color that you like, this is usually a neutral tone, and then select the type of tile you want. You can jazz up this solid field of tile by popping in another color or colors sporadically. This breaks up the solid field a little. It only takes a couple of odd colored tiles here and there to really change the overall look.
If you have a solid countertop then you should consider putting up a glass tile blend. This beautiful assortment of color can pull together your counters, cabinets, and fixtures. A lot of companies sell stock blends with particular colors but there are some out there that will customize the blend for you. Done correctly and a glass tile blend will make your kitchen backsplash something that everyone will talk about. Other than color you need to also consider textures. Install sheets of tile that mix stone, glass, and/or metal. The effect is gorgeous. It can go from a natural look to very upscale. Changing the texture will add depth to your splash and make it blend very well with your countertops and cabinets.
Home designers advocate installing a non-absorbent durable surface backsplash in the kitchen in places that are subject to a great deal of wear and tear. This definitely includes the areas behind ranges and sinks. Others include the area of wall running between the countertop and upper wall cabinets. In most homes, the materials you will see in place is just painted sheetrock overlaid with plaster and paint. This provides absolutely no protection against the water, steam, oils or sauces that these wall areas will encounter ever single day.
