Kick Up the Atmosphere with a Kitchen Backsplash

Your kitchen’s backsplash is a prime example of a marriage between form and function. It protects the walls of your home while remaining easy to clean. Backsplashes are also a fantastic way to add some style and personalization to your home. If you’re thinking of replacing your existing backsplash or adding an entirely new one, here’s what you need to know.

Find the Right Color Scheme

Your backsplash needs to match (or at least complement) your countertops and cabinets. Consider the color of the materials already in your kitchen and plan from there. If, for example, you have quartz counters with a touch of gold, a gold backsplash might really make them pop. Some shades, like white, go with just about anything so you may select other tones.

If your cabinets and countertops are neutral, you can also pick backsplashes that match your wall color or accent shades. If your kitchen accessories are red, for instance, you could opt for tiles with a hint of red to tie it all together.

Mixing Textures

A fantastic, inexpensive way to add some extra dimension to your backsplash is by mixing textures. Matte, satin, and gloss finishes will all catch light differently and create a bolder effect. Many of the most popular premade backsplash sheets already include this kind of combination, so you can get ideas or buy them ready to go.

Choosing Materials

There are lots of materials to choose from when selecting a backsplash. You need to consider a balance between style and durability if you want your kitchen to look good for years to come. Glass tile is durable and beautiful, but it can be a bit tricky to install. Ceramic tile is a very popular choice, but it’s usually not available in the same color spectrum.

Whatever you choose, take your time and go with your instincts. Before you know it, you’ll have the kitchen backsplash of your dreams.
