Having a backsplash makes a design statement and also makes cleaning up kitchen cooking messes a lot easier.
There are many types of backsplash materials that you can choose from, and when it comes to kitchen backsplash design, you don’t even need to pick just one! You might choose to include a focal area design that uses different tile or materials from the rest of your backsplash.
When choosing materials for your new kitchen backsplash, you’ll want to take into account the style of your kitchen (modern, farmhouse, country, minimalist) and the colors/materials directly next to your backsplash – your kitchen cabinets and countertop. Some homeowners prefer that a backsplash blend with the color palette of the kitchen, and others will use backsplash design to create bold, eye-catching color and material choices.
Another consideration for materials is maintenance. Kitchen backsplashes that include stone, for example, will need periodic sealing to prevent odors from penetrating them over time. You will want to fully research the maintenance recommendations before installing your backsplash.
