Kitchen Backsplash Tile Installation.
Why settle for ordinary when you can create a striking look with backsplash tile? A tiled kitchen backsplash is a great addition to any home. It is functional, decorative and a personality piece that can serve as the kitchen’s focal point. Its installation is an opportunity to be creative.
As it is the focal point of many homes, even the most cost-conscious homeowner may decide to add a stylish touch to their kitchen. If you’re in the process of designing a kitchen or bathroom, consider the versatility and elegance backsplash tile has to offer. A tiled backsplash will protect kitchen walls from moisture and reduce mold, mildew and bacteria formations. All tile materials are heat resistant and would function well behind the stove.
It is not an easy task choosing the perfect tiled backsplash. Although kitchen countertops, lighting and hardware often dictate the backsplash color and style, there are few other limitations. Most all tile material will function well as a kitchen backsplash. The tiling material can be granite, glass, metal, travertine, limestone, slate, mosaic, quartzite, standard ceramic or porcelain.
Tile you install between the countertop and cabinets and above the range showcase the color scheme and theme of your kitchen. That area usually has more square footage of wall space than other areas of the kitchen. Thus, it becomes a focal point and gets a lot of visual attention. A good design technique is to use a neutral tile for the rest of the kitchen, then use a glass tile to create a showy centerpiece above the stove. Because you are still working with a small total area, you can choose a bold color or trendy tile pattern for this kitchen backsplash zone.
Plan Ahead for the Backsplash Installations.
Plan ahead and have some drawings and materials selected prior to visiting your contractor. Assemble some photos from magazines. If you have photos from the likes of House Beautiful, then everything become much easier. The decisions regarding material needed and availability are more easily solved. That advice goes double if the project is do it yourself (DIY).
The ideal design strategy would be to have the installers go to the tile shop with the homeowners to develop a plan and select materials for the job.
