Kitchen Backsplashes. Wednesday , November 29th , 2017 - 06:02:42 AM
Your first decision when thinking about a kitchen backsplash will be related to scope: How much surface area do you need to cover with a backsplash? For smaller kitchens, a minimalist backsplash just a few tiles high can be enough, whereas a more extensive design might overwhelm the space. In larger kitchens that feature a grander design, countertop-to-ceiling backsplashes can add drama and elegance, as well as optimize the use of available space or build on a design theme.
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.
There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course, every homeowner's definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you, there are several ways to approach the design, from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.
