Kitchen Backsplashes. Tuesday , November 28th , 2017 - 18:07:23 PM
Once you've decided on the material you'll use for your small kitchen backsplash, it's time to determine how much of it you'll need. To do so, simply measure the surface area you're looking to cover. This can be anything from the entire wall space between the countertops and cabinets, a smaller portion thereof, or, for a truly grand design, the entire wall space between your countertops and ceiling.
If your budget breaks through the ceramic tile ceiling, you may want to consider granite tile or other natural materials. Popular for kitchen countertops and floors, granite, travertine or even marble tile are often employed in backsplash design, providing an elegant and durable option and a high-end look. All of the kinds of natural stone tiles are available in a range of colors and textures, from slate-like matte finishes to rougher, pebbled designs. Color choices are nearly inexhaustible as well, and many granite retailers can find or even dye their products based on your needs if you don't see the shade you're looking for on site.
Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash, you'll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don't always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact, that design might be too overwhelming, especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area, many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen's layout, that may be the whole wall, half of it or only a small portion.
