When it comes to the amount of mosaic tile you‘ll need, you‘ll first need to determine how much surface area will be covered by your backsplash design. Some homeowners choose to cover the whole wall above the kitchen counters with backsplash, while others decide on a reduced scope that covers only a portion—just enough to keep cooking splash off the walls, for example. Once you‘ve decided how much surface area you want to cover, you‘ll simply need to mark off the area and measure the square footage to determine the amount of tile you‘ll need.
At the outset of your metal tile backsplash project, you‘ll want to determine the scope of the project. To estimate the amount of metal tile material you‘ll need, measure the square footage of the area in your kitchen you want to cover with the backsplash. Figuring out how much tile you‘ll need will give you a good indication of the overall budget, so it‘s an essential first step. Before calculating the square footage, you‘ll need to decide if you want a backsplash that covers the entirety of the wall space between your counters and cabinets or counters and ceiling, or just a portion thereof. The style that‘s right for you may be a more understated backsplash that only covers enough of the walls to prevent cooking and cleaning spatter, or it may be a grand affair that dramatically stretches from countertops to ceiling. Once you‘ve decided on the amount of coverage, mark the area off and measure the square footage.
Several styles of ceramic kitchen backsplash tile appear again and again in homes, with good reason. Subway tile is an immensely popular, classic choice that can be found in many commercial and residential kitchens. Its simple, uncomplicated style features rectangular ceramic tiles, usually in white or light colors, with light grout. While this is the most popular subway tile style, it comes in a wide variety of colors and sizes, and the simple, rectangular shape can be arrayed in just about any pattern—so customization is definitely possible.
There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course, every homeowner‘s definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you, there are several ways to approach the design, from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.
