In this project, you will have glass, tile or an additional ornamental material installed to provide your kitchen with such a beautiful, yet protective backsplash. When it comes to kitchen backsplashes, the options are countless regarding material, color, size and cost. Eventually, seeking the best for yourself and your lifestyle is what you will probably do. Also, you should know the pros and cons of this project to make the whole backsplash installation process easier.
Some may wonder, why would you add a new backsplash to your kitchen? It is pretty simple, as backsplashes work as centerpieces of the kitchen, which add such attraction as well as harmony between the kitchen components like materials and other elements.
The more complex the design is, the more difficult the project will be and more expenses you will pay. As mentioned above, determine the type of backsplash you favor first. You have limitless options from sleek back painted glass to complicated ceramic tile patterns and custom murals. Browse photos, search for suitable materials, seek a designer’s help and go to showrooms, as these factors will help you to make the right decision.
Many professional designers say to measure, re-measure and re-measure. Measuring helps you to choose the right size of tile or any other material. The benefits of hiring an experienced designer arethat he can think and suggest appropriate ideas for the beginning and ending of your tile layout, in addition to wrapping around your cabinets or categorize hood, etc.
Trust me, your countertop’s type plays a major role as such a determining factor. For instance, there would be a conflict between a busy backsplash and a busy granite countertop due to many differences. Be mindful of the ways that can help you making you choose the right material, as it will boost and improve the other elements in your room, the other way around.
Figuring out the amount of tile and other materials that you are going to need is what comes after. Expert designers say that you should consider 10% to the amount of square feet of space. Assuming you already have 50 square feet for a backsplash, you can order 55 square feet of tile. As a result, it may lead to breakage and job mistakes. It is also advisable to work along with the company or store of the materials for the sake of ensuring what exactly you are buying regarding tile, trim pieces, etc. that you will receive them in time.
