When you ve decided on the scope and materials for your backsplash it s time to think about the style. If your kitchen is a hyper-modern affair boasting stainless steel appliances and angular monochrome cabinets you ll have an opportunity to add some color patterning and visual excitement to what might otherwise be a minimalist design via your backsplash. Alternatively you may choose to stick with the sleek modern feel with simple white subway tile or large slate-like granite pieces. On the other hand if your kitchen has more of a traditional or country feel with lots of detailed wood cabinetry and a cozy design you may want to consider tile that reflects the overall aesthetic and incorporates whimsical designs or traditional colors and patterns.
Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash you ll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start but keep in mind that you don t always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact that design might be too overwhelming especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen s layout that may be the whole wall half of it or only a small portion.
