The right kitchen backsplash tile can really pull your kitchen renovation together. While personal preference will factor into your decision, there are a few things you should consider so that the end-result adds value to your home. For example, consider whether to go with a splash of color or something more neutral. You’ll also need to decide the placement – do you want it to fill the space between the lower and upper cabinets or just come up part way? With many different colors, styles, shapes, and materials, you have a big decision ahead of you.
Getting back to color for a moment. If your kitchen cabinetry and countertops are more neutral, here is your chance to incorporate a special color. Blues and grays are very popular right now or you can go with something extra bright for a “wow” factor. On the other hand, if you have a countertop with tons of colors in it, going a bit tamer for the kitchen backsplash could be the better option. You definitely want your kitchen backsplash to go well with the countertops because it is right up against them.
Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring, as you could go with a unique tile shape, pattern, or texture. If you find something that you love but is beyond your budget, consider using it for an accent area, such as over the stove or sink instead of the entire kitchen backsplash.
