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.
If you‘ve decided on mosaic tile for your kitchen backsplash, you‘ve already got a jump on the planning phase, having chosen the exact tile style you‘ll feature. Your next move will be to decide on the scope of your project—to define, in other words, exactly how much mosaic tile you‘ll need for your backsplash design. Additionally, you‘ll need to settle on the material, style, pattern and color of the tile.
One of the chief benefits of a ceramic tile backsplash—apart from the protective aspect—is that it can add tremendous visual appeal, color and personality to your kitchen design. Many homeowners view a ceramic tile backsplash as a great opportunity to experiment with bold designs, patterns and colors. Also on the list of ceramic tile backsplash benefits is the fact that ceramic tile is extremely easy to clean—an especially important quality in any busy kitchen. Most ceramic tile backsplashes will simply wipe clean if meal preparation has left them spattered with food and grime.
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.
