The kitchen backsplash is the most popular place to put glass tile. In a smaller kitchen, the small mosaic tiles will make the space look larger. In a larger kitchen, the small mosaic tiles look more like a solid field tile. Either way it will look great and be personalized to you. With all the mosaic glass tiles available on the market, how do you choose what to use? Here are some installation ideas that might get your started. Creativity is the key here.
To come up with new ideas for a kitchen backsplash, they best source is your imagination. Try and decide a theme which goes with the overall colour scheme of your kitchen. If you have yellow coloured cupboards, then a black coloured backsplash crafted out of shiny ceramic tiles will look good. However, if you have a small kitchen, then we would suggest that you go for a white colour scheme as it creates a sense of more space and room.
Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
Cover your entire backsplash in one solid color. This is good when you have a very busy granite countertop. You simply choose one color that you like, this is usually a neutral tone, and then select the type of tile you want. You can jazz up this solid field of tile by popping in another color or colors sporadically. This breaks up the solid field a little. It only takes a couple of odd colored tiles here and there to really change the overall look.
The most common type of kitchen backsplash is the kitchen tiles. Tiles have several styles, size, materials and designs you can choose from. There are glass tiles, natural stone tiles, mosaic tiles and porcelain tiles. Choose a material that will match your countertop. If your countertop's color is neutral, choose a backsplash that will give accent to the whole kitchen. The mosaic tiles can also be a decorative element in your wall. If you don't know how to make a design yourself, you can buy pre-made mosaics that are ready for installations.
