Kitchen Backsplash. Monday , October 09th , 2017 - 11:18:52 AM
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.
Before you decide on a theme or materials for your unique kitchen backsplash, you‘ll want to define the scope of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don‘t always have to cover the entire wall with the backsplash. Many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or cleaning, covering anywhere from 25% to 75% of the wall‘s surface area.
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.
