A good kitchen has the appliances and storage you need to create a fantastic meal. A great kitchen combines all this with a fabulous design. And what better place to inject some style than your kitchen backsplash?
At Tallen Builders in Ocala, FL, we specialize in custom built homes that meet your every specification. With the kitchen being one of the most often used rooms in the home, it’s important to choose a design that you won’t get sick of. Here are some tips on how to choose the perfect kitchen backsplash.
Go With Your Personal Style
While it can be fun to experiment with different home styles, it’s a good idea to incorporate elements you know you’ll like in a room used as often as the kitchen. Don’t feel like you must stick to just one style either. Maybe a mix of rustic and contemporary suits you best. Use the Internet to your advantage and explore different kitchen styles to find your favorites.
Consider the Kitchen’s Style
Whether you’re building a new home or remodeling, keep the kitchen materials and appliances you’ll be using in mind when deciding on a backsplash. The areas that must work well with your backsplash design are the floors and countertops. A kitchen design trifecta of sorts!
Decide on Placement
Kitchen backsplashes can go in a variety of places, so it’s important to decide exactly where you want to draw attention in your kitchen. If you want your backsplash to be seen from all angles, place it in the area between your cabinets and countertop. If you want to focus on specific areas, popular choices for kitchen backsplash placement are behind the cook-top and sink.
Choose a Backsplash Material
Now that you’ve figured out all of your kitchen backsplash requirements, you can begin the fun part: choosing a backsplash material. Simple tiles are always a great, easy to clean option that will never go out of style. If you’d like your tiles to be a little more unique than what you might find at a hardware store, look into handmade artisan tiles.
For a small kitchen, consider a magnetized or mirrored backsplash. A magnetic backsplash will help you take advantage of more space by creating additional storage for things like spices or knives. Mirrors on the other hand will create the illusion that your kitchen is much bigger than it is.
If you want your kitchen to seem brighter, think about using glass for a backsplash. In either tile or sheet forms, glass backsplashes reflect light beautifully and instantly cheer up the kitchen.
