Similarly, you may want to experiment with a fabric backsplash. Everything from tablecloths to old dresses can be repurposed for a backsplash, fastened to a thin piece of plywood and then coated with protective sealant to keep moisture off and allow for easy cleaning. This is a great way to add visual interest to any easy kitchen backsplash design.
Once you‘ve got the square footage figured out, it‘s time to think about the style of glass tile you‘ll feature. The possibilities are just about endless, from sparkling, clear styles to frosted, colored or textured glass. One consideration that may help you decide on a style is whether or not you plan to match the existing design of your kitchen with the new glass tile backsplash or if you‘ll use the backsplash to add a new, unique visual aesthetic to the space.
Stainless steel appliances have become common in modern kitchen designs, and with good reason—their sleek, stylish appearance works well in a wide range of kitchens, and they‘re extremely low maintenance. The same is true of stainless steel backsplash tiles—one of the great added benefits of these tiles is that they‘re extremely low maintenance and durable. Ceramic or other forms of grouted tile can require extensive scrubbing or specialty products to clean—with stainless steel tiles, homeowners can normally just wipe them clean easily with some disinfectant and a damp rag.
Now that the scope of the project is clear, it‘s time to think about the style of mosaic tile you‘ll use. You‘ll have a great deal of choices in this area, from glass and ceramic to many types of granite or stone. In general, ceramic and synthetics will be the cheapest materials; glass, stone and other natural materials will be more expensive. Ultimately, the style you choose may be defined by whether or not you plan to match the existing design of your kitchen or if you‘ll use the mosaic backsplash as a bit of a style departure. For example, an understated, contemporary kitchen could be complemented with a simple, black-and-white design—or you might choose to add color with a vibrant, multicolored mosaic. Using glass will generally create a brighter and more reflective design, whereas stone or granite may offer a more matte feel.
