Francoise Joi Kitchen Backsplashes November 29, 2017 05:48:57
Your first decision when thinking about a kitchen backsplash will be related to scope: How much surface area do you need to cover with a backsplash? For smaller kitchens a minimalist backsplash just a few tiles high can be enough whereas a more extensive design might overwhelm the space. In larger kitchens that feature a grander design countertop-to-ceiling backsplashes can add drama and elegance as well as optimize the use of available space or build on a design theme.
Ask about wear and tear. How easily can you clean the tile and what is the best way to seal it? Ceramic tile doesn t need this extra step but natural tile does if you want to maintain its appearance. "If the tile is stainless steel find out if abrasives will scratch it and I would suggest getting a grout additive and sealing the grout itself so it stays fresh and clean for longer " Van Deusen says.
