A new backsplash can liven up any kitchen design—and if you‘re in the market for one that‘s attractive, efficient and long-lasting, you‘ll want to check out ideas for stainless steel kitchen backsplash tiles.
When you‘ve determined the amount of subway tile you‘ll need for the project, it‘s installation time. Subway tile can be anywhere from extremely simple to extremely difficult to install, depending on the material you‘ve chosen, the layout of the area you‘ll be covering, and the pattern of the tile. If you‘re a novice when it comes to tile installation, you‘ll probably want to hire a professional to install your subway tile backsplash. Alternatively, if you‘ve got serious DIY chops or have installed backsplash tile before, you may want to try installing the backsplash yourself for a considerable savings.
Additionally, stainless steel is more resistant to the corrosive effects of food spatter than most kinds of tile. This means it‘s likely to hold up well over the years, providing a great return on the initial investment. If you‘re in the planning stages of a stainless steel backsplash tile installation, your first task will be to determine how much tile material you‘ll need for the project. You can calculate this by measuring the surface area you need to cover in the kitchen—usually a portion or the entirety of the walls above your kitchen countertops. Once you‘ve determined the scope of the materials you‘ll need, you can explore the full range of stainless steel tile backsplash options at your local home improvement, hardware or tile specialty store, or you can browse the almost infinite options online for inspiration. You‘ll find that the varieties of stainless steel available for kitchen backsplashes are quite diverse in terms of color and hue, texture and reflectiveness.
When you‘ve determined what material you‘ll be using, it‘s time to figure out how much you‘ll need to source for your subway tile project. Measuring the surface area you need to cover to determine the square footage will give you this figure. In general, backsplashes cover the portion of a kitchen‘s walls above the countertops which will be most at risk from cooking or cleaning spatter. However, if your subway tile vision includes a grand execution that stretches from countertops to ceiling, go forth undaunted—there are no hard and fast rules for how much backsplash is too much.
