Refreshing Your Backsplash

September 15, 2022 | Uncategorized

Have you considered there are ways to update your kitchen while adding an elegant or playful touch? Choosing to replace your backsplash can cost less than doing a complete remodel and can freshen up an outdated kitchen.

Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your house. It’s often a hub of activity that revolves around family and friends. Adding your personality whether it’s your love of modern aesthetics, a farmhouse feeling, or a vibe of sophistication, is the perfect way to showcase your home in a beautiful reflection of not only who you are, but with designs you love.

When considering a kitchen refresh, people often think of cabinetry or countertops, but an oft overlooked area of the room is the understated backsplash. By kicking up the design to create a bold use of color or a graceful style of glass mosaic tiles, you can revive the overall feel of this important room.

Whether you prefer to change the color, design, or style, consider accent tiles to offset your choice and impart your personality. Another option is the ever-popular mosaic aesthetic. This combination of colors come in multiple varieties, such as pebbled glass, subway styled tiles, or in a pattern of smaller squares. The options are almost endless and come in shades that range from shimmery glass to simple, earth-toned matte colors.

Another aspect worth thinking about is that while tiles that look like an antique quilt might be popular one year, the following year, you may regret going with a fast trend. With mosaic tiling, it’s endlessly popular, unlike tiled countertops which went out as soon as people realized all those grout lines wouldn’t be the best work surface.

One thing to keep in mind when selecting backsplash options is to take your lighting into account, whether it be natural lighting or artificial lighting sources. Will the tiles you choose look the same in your kitchen as they do in a showroom? Understanding how lighting plays off the backsplash can help you with making a great choice.

Other backsplash details worth noting
