A kitchen backsplash protects your walls and keeps them safe from splashes when you cook and prep meals. It can also add some color to your Sunbury, PA home. Take a look at some of the things to consider when choosing your kitchen backsplash.
Before you start shopping for tiles, measure the size and space where you need a backsplash such as under or behind your cabinets. This will tell you the square footage and how many tiles you need. It’s helpful to add an extra 10% to your measurement to compensate for any mistakes you might make.
You have many options when it comes to tiles for your backsplash such as glass, which has an elegant touch but is often expensive. Ceramic tiles are more affordable and come in a range of colors to match your kitchen. You might like the neutral colors and dramatic look of natural stone tiles, too.
Subway tiles are popular because they have a timeless look that works for years to come. Some prefer the look of fish scale tiles that have rounded edges and catch the eye. Tiles with more elaborate designs will add more to your budget but can match or work with your kitchen plumbing fixtures.
A kitchen backsplash consists of both tiles and grout, which is what holds the tiles to the wall and prevents water damage. Though you can go with a traditional black grout, you’ll also find white grout and tons of other colors.
