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.
Once you ve decided on how much backsplash you want to feature in your kitchen it s time to think about style. Your choices in terms of materials colors and layout are just about infinite with a wide range of aesthetic quality and price options. Ceramic tile is a popular choice for kitchen backsplash designs because it s widely available and comes in an almost infinite variety of styles and colors. Perhaps most importantly ceramic tile can be cleaned fairly easily (the "splash" in backsplash is there for good reason). Within the range of ceramic tile choices you ll find simple high-gloss "subway tile" styles in every color of the rainbow all the way through to elaborate designs and patterns that can give your kitchen a tremendous amount of visual flair.
