The design of the kitchen backsplash can actually make the kitchen look good or bad. A beautifully designed backsplash can give an otherwise boring room life, while a poorly designed backsplash can make even a perfectly designed kitchen look bad. Thus it is important to carefully plan the kitchen backsplash design to give the kitchen a great look. There are many materials that can be used in creating a backsplash. You can use tiles, steel, stone and glass. But perhaps the most appealing of all these is tiles.
Types of Tiles. There are various types of flooring that can fit into everybody's needs according to kitchen designs and need of the homeowner. Natural slate stone tiles are durable, stain resistant and non-slip surface due to their textures; designed for the busy kitchen. Saltillo tiles are for Mediterranean designed kitchens that must be sealed and cleaned with wet cloth without chemicals. Granite kitchen tiles on the other hand, are durable but sensitive to liquid stains and scratches and rough objects exposed to them. This type of kitchen flooring must be cleaned often. Porcelain tiles are more durable and expensive than ceramics and they come in assorted colors. Ceramics kitchen tiles come in matte or glossy types in many colors. Travertine is a porous limestone that is usually sealed to prevent liquid and dirt absorption. It becomes slippery with drops of water or juice.
A glass tile kitchen backsplash brings elegance, style, color, and light to your kitchen. The colors, designs, and sizes available will sure to fit anything you have in mind. They are a little more expensive than ceramic tile, but you will be happy with the results the extra money will give. The do-it-yourselfer will find glass tiles easy to trim and apply if you are wanting to tackle the project yourself. Most come already together by a mesh background with perfect grout spacing between. A very good choice for the kitchen because it is easy to clean. Ceramic tile is the most common and traditionally looked at as cheap.
