The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home. It can make your home feel inviting and add a splash of your own personal style. If you want your kitchen to be a focal point of your home, it should be up to date and a place that you love to cook and entertain. A backsplash refresh is an easy way to update the look and feel of the kitchen. Think about these things before choosing a new backsplash for your kitchen!
Think About Your Style
The backsplash is an easy way to add style to your kitchen without doing an entire kitchen remodel. When you decide to change your backsplash, consider trends but also think about your style.
Maybe you already love your cabinets and countertops, but you want to create a room with more color without significantly changing the entire room or spending months tearing out the entire kitchen. Replacing the backsplash is a great choice.
Consider Types of Material for Your Home
There are many types of materials for a backsplash. Classic solid-colored subway tile is always an excellent choice for a backsplash. However, if you are looking for a fresh, new look, you may want to consider more modern trends like glass tile, bold solid colors, patterns, shapes, or even textures.
When it comes to backsplashes, the possibilities are nearly endless. Typing in a search for backsplash images in a web browser will give you just an idea of how many options exist.
Understanding Maintenance Requirements
When you choose a backsplash for your kitchen, understand that different backsplash materials have unique maintenance requirements. Take a look at some backsplash options and make sure you understand what is required for the maintenance once it is installed. For example, a backsplash with texture may be harder to clean in a kitchen than a smooth backsplash.
You should also take into consideration the color of grout that will be used in the kitchen. Darker grout will hide stains better than light grout. However, just because you choose a dark grout, does not mean that you can forget about clearing it. It still gets dirty even though you may not be able to see it.
Plan for the Desired Look in Your New Kitchen
How will the new backsplash complement your existing kitchen and home? Maybe you want your kitchen to stand out by making a bold statement with contrasting colors from the existing walls, countertops, or cabinets. It is easy and relatively inexpensive to do this in the kitchen with a backsplash.
