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.
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.
