Huette Monin Kitchen Backsplashes September 10, 2017 13:14:14
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.
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.
