Backsplashes: When The Fun Begins


The fourth step in the process of achieving your dream kitchen is backsplashes. This is where it starts to get more fun!


With your backsplash, you can let the personality of your kitchen dazzle your space. It will be a focal point in your kitchen.


Backsplashes are fun because there are so many options to choose from. Depending on what style you’d like, you can showcase certain aspects of your personality this way.

The area above your stove and sink usually has more square footage. These areas can be used to showcase a featured design or added interest, such as a slightly more expensive tile.


Whatever you choose, your backsplash will pull your kitchen together and compliment all of the other aspects of your kitchen.

There Are Plenty of Options to Choose From


When it comes to the specifics of your backsplash, you have so many options. This makes it easy to pick the one that’s perfect for you and the look and feel of your kitchen.


If you want a timeless look, subway tile may be the way to go. This material is classic and will never go out of style. It’s also very affordable if you want to stick to a tighter budget.


There are several ways to create a modernized look as well. Beveled tile is popular, and along with a coloured grout, it accents other aspects in your kitchen.


You have plenty of colour options, too. If you don’t like white, coloured subway tiles, in greys, greens, and beiges, are available. Glass subway tiles that come in an array of colours are also beautiful.

Mosaic backsplashes are a bit of a trend and less traditional. Some have multi-facet materials in them, such as glass, crackled glass, mirrors or stainless steel. This can make your kitchen look busy, so be sure to bring a sample home with you to see how it looks with your countertop.
