Choosing a Backsplash for Your Kitchen
Choosing a backsplash for your kitchen can be a stressful decision. It has to go with your cabinets and your countertop and not all of us are professional designers. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a backsplash for your kitchen.
The material you choose for your backsplash sets the tone of your kitchen style. If you want an elegant look, consider a glass backsplash. They are a little bit more pricey but they add a beautiful touch to your kitchen. If you don’t want to spend the big bucks, you could use a subway tile with an accent row of glass backsplash. That could considerably lower your costs. If you have a rustic style kitchen, you could use a stone or brick. Some people even use a dark colored subway tile for easy cleaning. For a cottage style kitchen, consider using beadboard. It’s easy to install and looks amazing.
The nice thing about choosing a backsplash for your kitchen is that there are so many color options. If you’re noticing that your kitchen colors are a little bland, consider a colorful subway tile or a mosaic tile with a fun pattern. Your backsplash can be the accent piece in your kitchen through color. You could also choose a simple backsplash color so your kitchen remains timeless.
Backsplash and Countertops
The backsplash you choose should work well with your countertops. So if you have a busy countertop, then your backsplash should be simple. You don’t want your backsplash and your countertops to be competing for attention, instead, they should complement each other. If you have a bold backsplash, then your countertops should be subtle.
Backsplash and Cabinets
Cabinets don’t tend to have painted on patterns, so it won’t be as hard choosing a backsplash that goes well with them. You do need to consider color though. For example, if you have blue cabinets you probably wouldn’t choose a brightly colored backsplash. There should be a contrast between the two elements.
Backsplashes don’t cover a lot of space so they can be relatively inexpensive, depending on the material. But if you have a large kitchen, they can easily go over your budget. If you found a backsplash that you love but it is too expensive, think about just using it as an accent in a much simpler and less expensive backsplash.
