To get a really sensible treatment for kitchen walls, use kitchen backsplash tiles! Kitchen surfaces take a beating, especially walls over the sink and the stove. They get bumped by small appliances. They get covered with bits of food. Kitchen walls have to be tough! Kitchen backsplash tiles come in the most durable materials available metal, ceramic, clay, glass, and even cork and rubber! All of these materials hold up to harsh treatment better than simple drywall or wallpaper.
Mosaic Tile Backsplash Ideas: Creating a mosaic kitchen backsplash is a quite difficult task, which you can undertake yourself. To be successful you should prepare the things you need before starting the task. These include ceramic tiles, cardboard items to create a template, sponge towel, grout and tile adhesive. You will also need many tools such as a tile snips, power drill, trowel, tape measure and pencil with eraser. To begin, calculate the kitchen backsplash and transfer these dimensions to a cardboard piece. The cardboard should then be cut and then installed on the backsplash area making sure it fits perfectly. Since you are creating a mosaic backsplash, you should cut the ceramic tiles in to smaller even sized pieces.
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.
