If you‘ve decided a new or updated backsplash is just what your small kitchen needs, your first step will be to identify the materials you‘ll use for your backsplash. You‘ll have myriad choices, from traditional backsplash materials like ceramic tile and glass to more high-end materials like stainless steel and granite. Your material choice will likely have everything to do with two factors: the style you‘re shooting for via your kitchen design, and your budget. For anyone attempting to install even a small kitchen backsplash while maintaining a budget, high-end materials may be cost-prohibitive. On the other hand, if the design style you‘re trying to implement absolutely needs a granite backsplash despite a limited budget, there are plenty of synthetic materials you can consider that will approximate the look of just about any natural stone or other material.
Ceramic tile backsplashes are the most common type found in homes, and with good reason. Ceramic tile is durable, cheap, easy to install and comes in an almost infinite range of styles, colors and textures. Installing a ceramic tile backsplash in your kitchen can add visual interest and style to your kitchen design while also protecting your walls from unsightly and potentially corrosive food spatter.
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.
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.
