Francoise Joi Kitchen Backsplashes September 10, 2017 13:50:35
Try mixing metallic tiles in different shades with various finishes such as brushed stainless steel oil-rubbed bronze or even an antique brass. By including small tiles of marble or granite you can pull in the countertop color without being boring with a panel of granite that extends up from the countertop says Barrie Spang interior designer at Lee Meier Interiors in Westlake Ohio. As for glass tiles check out some of the newer tiles with a bit of crackle or frosted finish Spang says.
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.
