How to Choose the Perfect Kitchen Backsplash

A kitchen backsplash may be used to redefine the aesthetic of your kitchen, and it can also function as the focal point.

Although it may not seem like a priority, upgrading your kitchen backsplash is important and should not be ignored. Often times people focus on other areas of the kitchen such as cabinets, appliances, and countertops when renovating, but overlook the backsplash.

Not only will a backsplash protect your kitchen wall from spills and splatters, but it will also make your kitchen look more stylish. Backsplashes can be customized to match any decor theme, making your kitchen stand out among the rest!

Varieties Of Kitchen Backsplash

While tiles have been the traditional choice of material for backsplash tiles for homeowners, there are plenty of other tile options on the market now. Technology has made it easier to install these new backsplash materials.

1. Mosaic Tile

Kitchen backsplashes made from mosaic tiles are becoming increasingly popular because they come in small sizes and shapes. Mosaic tiles can be made of clay, porcelain, or ceramic, and are sometimes called marble tile if made from marble. Their small size makes them easy to design and customize.

2. Subway Tile

The benefits of a subway tile backsplash are many. Not only are they extremely versatile and easy to clean, but their simple design makes them ideal for any kitchen - especially if you need a more muted element to balance out a busy kitchen. However, that's not to say you cannot add some visual interest with your subway tiles. Try aligning them in a diagonal or vertical pattern for a unique twist on this classic look.

3. Stone Slab

If you're interested in trying something new and unique, natural stone slabs may be perfect for you. Slabs are composed of granite, marble, quartz, etc., and can be customized to match your kitchen's theme.

4. Stainless Steel

Stainless steel can also be an excellent choice for a kitchen backsplash. Even though this backsplash style is mostly used in industrial kitchens, such as in a restaurant, you'll be happy to know that it's just as possible to have this look at home. While it may not offer much customization or variety when it comes to aesthetics, stainless steel is definitely durable and easy-to cleaning - perfect for any busy household!

5. Glass Tile

Glass tiles have been used as a backsplash for several decades. It has had a significant influence on kitchen designs since its debut. Because it is completely waterproof, it's a great choice for people who need to deal with steam, splashes, and moisture every day. Furthermore, you may choose from an array of hues with glass tiles. These come in natural transparency and can give off a dazzling gleam. They are scratch-free as well, which is nice. A professional-grade installation is required; otherwise, the glue or grout will be visible.

Practical Considerations

When deciding on a kitchen design, it is important to remember to take into account the actual needs of your kitchen. This includes things like price points, types of materials, and the overall aesthetic you are going for.

  • Budget is crucial in choosing the best kitchen backsplash. However, if you are tight on budget, there’s no need to overspend on the backsplash. You could even just put in a backsplash behind the range hood.

  • If you're into frying spicy chicken on a hot stove, then you need something more durable and easier to clean for your backsplash, like stone slab or stainless steel.

  • If you enjoy cooking Asian dishes in a wok that generates a lot of steam, a glass tile with 100% waterproofing should be your first choice.
