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.
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.
When you‘ve got the scope figured out, it‘s time to source materials for your small kitchen backsplash. Your local home improvement or tile specialty store is your friend here, and you can also browse countless backsplash material options online. You‘ll need to decide on the right style for the material as well—most backsplash materials are available in a wide range of colors, textures and patterns. For a small kitchen design, consider a backsplash that adds personality, color and visual interest without overwhelming the small space or making it feel exceedingly cramped.
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.
