If you are interested in learning a about an easy way you can completely alter and improve the appearance of your kitchen and home without spending a ton of money, you have come to the right place. During the last several years, kitchen backsplashes have become an extremely popular choice in modern and fashionable home design. The popularity might stem from the fact that there are so many different backsplash options for homeowners to choose from. From eye-catching and ornate to subtle and sweet, there are literally hundreds of different ways you could design a kitchen backsplash for your home.
With your unique creativity and personal preference, you might want to create a completely personalized backsplash for your kitchen that no one else will be able to replicate. However, in the beginning, it might be helpful for you to get some ideas that can help you start brainstorming. For this purpose, here are a few useful tips and basic guidelines to help you decide on a backsplash that will make your family proud and your neighbors jealous.
Mosaic Is Always In
When you start to look at the many different tile options for your backsplash, you might start to feel somewhat overwhelmed at all that you find. After all, there are tons of different options to consider and it can be difficult to know which ones to choose for your particular home and sense of style. If you aren’t sure which color patterns to go with on your backsplash, remember that glass mosaic tiles are always in style. Mosaic tile has been around for a long time and it doesn’t seem to be going out of fashion any time soon. In most cases mosaic tile can be a safe bet for nearly any backsplash.
Express Your Unique Self
Another helpful tip to remember is to express yourself. You are a unique individual, so don’t be afraid to be that. You most likely have your own unique color preferences and particular designs you like, so don’t be afraid to let those things show through. In other words, you shouldn’t feel like you have to follow all the currently popular trends for kitchen backsplashes because your preferences will most likely be different from what is currently “in”. Just remember to be yourself and let your backsplash show off your unique style and stellar personality.
Make Sure The Backsplash Is Installed Correctly
Once you have picked out the perfect backsplash for your kitchen, it is vital that you make sure to have it installed correctly. The tiles that are used in a backsplash need to be accurately measured, cut, and installed to ensure that everything functions properly as a whole. If it is not installed correctly, you may end up with results that are less than satisfactory.
If you are already skilled at working with and installing kitchen tiles, you might be able to install the backsplash into your kitchen on your own. However, this is definitely not recommended if you do not already have the necessary skills. To avoid potential problems, it is usually best to have a backsplash installed into a kitchen by a professional who can make sure everything is done correctly.
When you explore the options and use a little bit of creativity, you can design a fabulous backsplash for your kitchen.
OMG I LOVE this!!! Will def have to try it out!ReplyDelete
The woven pattern is really cool! I want to put in a nice backsplash at lesat behind our stove this spring.ReplyDelete
I am in the thinking process of renovating our kitchen. The backsplash looks great, however I am not very crafty or handy so not sure if I can do it, however it is something to ponder.ReplyDelete
I actually don't have a backsplash and have not thought much about it until reading this. Thanks for putting a bee in my bonnet. I love doing home reno's and this would be a really good project for me to do (and relatively inexpensive).ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great tips and encouragement. I'd always been a little hesitant about taking on this type of project and always drool over the displays at my home improvement store but I think I can actually do this now.ReplyDelete
I am in no way handy or crafty or creative. This is something I actually think my hubby and I could do together. I could even get my daughter involved by having her help pick out the tiles:) Thanks for the great idea!ReplyDelete
I still don't have a backsplash, but this gave me ideas. thanks!ReplyDelete
Luckily, when I get to doing my kitchen, I have a few friends that know what they are doing!ReplyDelete
This would be very nice addition! i live in a apartment so cant do any updating. maybe one of these years i will have my own place and will have to try this. my mom would love it too!ReplyDelete
I really need to fix up my kitchen and I loved the pic above as soon as I saw it, this would look amazing, gave me all kinds of ideas tooReplyDelete
I've seen some lovely aqua coloured bathroom tiles that I'd love to use as a kitchen backsplash.ReplyDelete
I like it. Mine is a mirror backsplash, so of course it's very hard to clean!_ Tara Berke TorresReplyDelete
I recently updated my kitchen. I couldn't find the tile I wanted and made my own so to speak. I used (4) 2x2 square tiles to make a 4x4 tile size using 2 different colors. It came out fabulous and I get compliments every time.ReplyDelete
I really love this and am thinking this would look pretty good in my kitchen.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the post! We have been flirting with the idea of installing a backsplash for a while.. I love the pattern shown here!ReplyDelete
Awesome to fix it up! Thanks for the great ideas!ReplyDelete
thanks this is a really great post my mom has been looking for smething to make her kitchen look veryt niceReplyDelete
I need a backsplash in my kitchen and like your mosaic idea.ReplyDelete
I had a vision of what I wanted for my back splash - white, black, and yellow. But when I went to every hardware store and tile store I could not find the right yellow in the right size. I got creative. I found a 2x2 square that was the right yellow. The back splash was going to use 4x4 spaces. So...I got the white 4x4 tile, and 2x2 in black and yellow. I had (4) 2x2 make a 4x4 by stacking 2 on top of each other alternating colors. I then made a checker board pattern over the stove. Everyone thought it was genius. I thought I was just being resourceful.ReplyDelete
