Hanrietta Meyer. Kitchen Backsplash. October 16th , 2017.
The first step to creating a simple, no frills, easy-to-install kitchen backsplash is to determine the amount of backsplash you want in your kitchen. For many homeowners, a backsplash is a utilitarian affair meant to keep cooking and cleaning spatter off the walls. But for others, the backsplash is a great opportunity to express their design style with an eye-catching, visually impactful backsplash.
Once you‘ve decided on the material you‘ll use for your small kitchen backsplash, it‘s time to determine how much of it you‘ll need. To do so, simply measure the surface area you‘re looking to cover. This can be anything from the entire wall space between the countertops and cabinets, a smaller portion thereof, or, for a truly grand design, the entire wall space between your countertops and ceiling.
If artistic expression doesn‘t line up with your idea of a cool backsplash, you may want to consider some non-traditional materials, or even traditional ones in unique textures and colors. For example, stainless steel, copper and tin backsplashes can be found in colors and patterns that can lend a truly stunning visual aspect to any kitchen design. Granite or even ceramic tile can be scored, manipulated and colored to your exact specifications via tile specialty retailers. And some homeowners even opt for wood backsplashes, which can of course be stained and painted to reflect exactly the right amount of cool to suit your style.
Stainless steel‘s durability and design flexibility make it a great choice for just about any kitchen design, from traditional to ultra-modern. And not all stainless steel backsplash tiles have the same look—you‘ll certainly find tiles in the traditional shiny or matte stainless steel style, but there are also options for punched, rippled or otherwise distressed tiles that can add a distinctive style to your kitchen.
