Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Backsplashes September 16, 2017 13:56:54
When you ve decided on the style for your cool kitchen backsplash it s time to figure out how much material you ll need. You can do this by measuring the surface area you want to cover—likely anywhere from a small portion to the entirety of the walls between your kitchen s countertops and cabinets—and then sourcing the square footage of material needed to cover that surface area. For almost any type of tile wood or metal backsplash your local home improvement store or tile specialty store should offer a wide range of options.
If artistic expression doesn t line up with your idea of a cool backsplash you may want to consider some non-traditional materials or even traditional ones in unique textures and colors. For example stainless steel copper and tin backsplashes can be found in colors and patterns that can lend a truly stunning visual aspect to any kitchen design. Granite or even ceramic tile can be scored manipulated and colored to your exact specifications via tile specialty retailers. And some homeowners even opt for wood backsplashes which can of course be stained and painted to reflect exactly the right amount of cool to suit your style.
