If you‘ve decided that subway tile is the right style for your kitchen backsplash, your first task will be to determine exactly what tile material you want to feature. You can browse the available choices online or in-store, and you‘re likely to find that subway-style tile is available in just about any type of backsplash material, from ceramic to glass to high-end granite. Your personal style and desire to match or diverge from the overall style of the kitchen—in addition to the budget you‘ve settled on for your backsplash project—will likely be the deciding factors here.
Regardless of your approach, you‘ll need to determine the amount of material you‘ll need for your easy kitchen backsplash, even before you determine the type. To do so, simply decide how much of the wall surface you want to cover with the backsplash (it‘s often anywhere from 25% to 100% of the space between the countertops and cabinets or countertops and ceiling). Once you‘ve figured out the scope of the backsplash, mark off the surface area and measure the square footage to figure out how much material you‘ll need.
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.
