How to select a tile backsplash

Tile backsplashes can add a lot of personality and style to your kitchen. But, selecting the right one can seem impossible. There is much to choose from and many directions one could go. Read on for tips on selecting yours!

 

Budget
First, consider your budget. Tile backsplashes can be expensive, but there are a variety of options available that fit different budgets. You may want to consider selecting a less expensive field tile and using a more expensive decorative tile for your accent to save cost while maximizing style.

 

Pattern
Second, think about the patterns you may want. Tiles come in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as patterns. You may want to consider your countertops and flooring when selecting tile patterns. For example, if you have granite countertops, you may want to select a tile that has a similar color or pattern. There are a variety of patterns to choose from such as herringbone, basketweave, subway tie, Morrocan zellige, and more.

Color
Third, consider the color of the tile and how it coordinates with your cabinets, countertops, and floors. You may want to select a tile that contrasts with your cabinetry or one that blends in. If you have tile floors, it may be best to coordinate the splash with them for a more cohesive look.

Size
Finally, take into account the size of your kitchen. Larger kitchens can accommodate more elaborate tile patterns, while smaller kitchens may need to stick to simpler designs. No matter what your kitchen size, there is a tile backsplash design that will look great in your home.

If you’re still not sure where to start, no worries. You can always call on your Cabinet Coach to guide you through this process. In the end, no matter what you choose, be sure that you love whatever you decide on – a quality backsplash will be part of your kitchen for a long time!
