One of the first decisions related to your kitchen backsplash design will be scope—just how much backsplash do you need? For some kitchens especially smaller ones a few tiles extending up from the countertops and ringing the room can be plenty; anything more extensive might run the risk of overwhelming the space. For larger kitchens countertop-to-ceiling backsplashes aren t entirely uncommon as grander executions like this can optimize the use of available space and create a dramatic effect or build on an existing theme.
Before you decide on a theme or materials for your unique kitchen backsplash you ll want to define the scope of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage is a good place to start but keep in mind that you don t always have to cover the entire wall with the backsplash. Many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or cleaning covering anywhere from 25% to 75% of the wall s surface area.
