As for design, your choice of backsplash can be matched to the countertop for that orderly and efficient look. Or, for a more dramatic effect you could throw in some color with patterned tiles or even a checkerboard. A mirrored backsplash might make a good choice for a smaller kitchen. And if you want more light, be sure to use a light colored backsplash.
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.
Another choice in kitchen backsplashes is stainless steel which provides a modern and stylish look to any kitchen. This type of backsplash is versatile and will compliment any kitchen countertop. It is easily cleaned as well as long lasting. However, on the negative side it can be easily dented and scratched.
The kitchen is a place in the house that is less exposed to visitors. When guests arrive, they are normally entertained in the living room. Sometimes guests are brought to the veranda for coffee of tea. Seldom do guests reach the kitchen even if they have been invited to lunch or dinner. The nearest area to the kitchen that they are usually allowed access to is the dining room, unless the house has the kitchen and dining room fused in one single location.
Backsplashes for kitchens are great for protecting the cabinets and walls but they also can define who you are to anyone who walks into your kitchen. With the right backsplash concept and style you can introduce new life to this central room in your home and even add extra value to the property.
