Kitchen Tile Backsplash Designs And Ideas
The kitchen tile backsplash serves mainly as an area to catch any grease that may spill from the stove during cooking. The backsplash used in the past were plain and simple. Today, backsplash tiles are elaborate, intricate and sophisticated, and serve more as statement pieces in the kitchen instead of an area to trap grease.
Your backsplash tile should ideally cover the area behind the stove. When choosing your backsplash tiles, it is important for you to choose tiles that will be easy to clean. In addition to being easy to clean, it is important to choose tiles that will blend in well with the other elements in the kitchen.
Here are the four elements of your kitchen that the backsplash should blend in with:
- The paint on the walls
- The color of the kitchen cabinets
- The kitchen countertop
- The floor tiles
The materials used for backsplash include ceramic, porcelain, stainless steel, tin, glass and copper. Your backsplash should be able to stand up to the heat from the stove and the rigorous cleaning that will have to be done to remove the grease that will build up over time.
Countertops with a subtle pattern and subtle colors will look nice when combined with a mosaic backsplash. Whatever you do, do not allow your choice of backsplash to make your decor overbearing.
