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.
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.
