Ceramic Tile Splashback: Ceramic spashbacks tend to be the most common as they can fit in with any tiling you may already have fitted in your kitchen. Depending upon the type of tiles they can be cheap to buy and can be easy to keep clean, however you will want to clean up any spills or mess on ceramic tiles reasonably quickly as they can potentially stain depending upon how porous they are.
This type of kitchen backsplashes is a splendid choice for adding an exquisite and characteristic charm to your kitchen. This comes in various colors and forms ranging from mosaic tiles, glass cubes, and single glass sheets; which can further be beautified by painting or etching. They are also easy to clean and complement well with the most popular countertop materials from porcelain to granite. The material and installation of this type of kitchen backsplashes however, would cost you more.
So what can you do to introduce some excitement in your kitchen? One of the simplest, most cost effective and practical ways of upgrading the look of your kitchen is by installing a kitchen backsplash. Not only does it help in improving the look of your kitchen, it also helps in protecting your walls from accidental food spills, thus preventing permanent stains which can get quite difficult to remove once they set in.
Glass Tile Splashback: Glass tiles can give your kitchen a more modern look and can be very elegant. Glass splashbacks can be very expensive however so unless you've got the money to back up such a purchase its best to stay with Ceramic. It also depends on what style your kitchen is before you have the glass splashbacks, for example a glass splashback wouldn't work if you had an old farmhouse style kitchen. Glass splashbacks tend to be more durable than Ceramic but they can expand with the heat and contract with the cold that will come from a kitchen and they can crack and grow weaker over time.
Metal and wood. With cabinets and counters dominating the layout of your kitchen, the backsplash is a good area to add some metal into the mix. For those with islands in the middle of their kitchen, you may even choose to coordinate this backsplash design and the materials to provide a nice mix of modern and rustic.
