Map it out. The backsplash is quite literally one of the first things you notice when you enter a kitchen, therefore, you should take special care in planning your backsplash design. It must not only be beautiful, the backsplash must tie the entire room together. Make sure to consider all the elements such as the countertop, floors, cabinets, and wall color when selecting your tile. More importantly, take time to plan the placement of tiles: Where will you start? What happens at the edges? Are the edges filled with awkward cuts? Typically, you start in the middle of the wall and work you way out.
Some of the things to consider when making your choice: Cost, how it will look with your existing kitchen and appliances, ease of cleaning, and durability. There are so many choices of materials that can be used to create a beautiful backsplash that you are only limited by your imagination. Many can also be mixed and matched to create an even more unique look. We will touch on some of the most popular choices of material but there are more I'm sure. Material includes glass tile, ceramic tile, stainless steel, copper, and stone such as granite, travertine, and marble.
Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
That is not the case anymore. Ceramic tiles now come in so many colors, sizes, textures, and designs that it is a very good option to give your kitchen backsplash a new vibrant look. Oh, and it still is a very inexpensive way to go. Ceramic tile is durable and easy to clean. Stainless steel and copper provide a clean and durable look to your backsplash. Many modern kitchens today have stainless steel appliances so be careful not to have too much and giving your kitchen a sterile look. Copper can be very beautiful and give your kitchen a rustic look but it will have to be clean often with copper cleaners. There are many stone options that make for a classic rich look to your kitchen. Options include marble, travertine, granite, and even slate.
Contemporary Kitchen. The contemporary cabinets have designs that are modern, curved or geometric manner. These cabinets do not make use of ornamentation or molding. One can get white, stainless steel or other bright colors in the contemporary cabinets. Doors of these cabinets are designed in such a way that they open in horizontally lift up style.
