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.
Express yourself with color. Because the backsplash is a relatively small area, it's your chance to play with color. It's always safe to choose warm, soft colors. However, you can be much more daring! This is your chance to add an exciting punch of color. Play with pattern. Patterns add interest - especially if you are on a tight budget. One easy way to save money is to select standard tiles in complementary or contrasting colors and then arrange them to create an interesting pattern. For instance, an unusual checkered pattern can make your kitchen feel like a quaint little bistro rather than a boring rental apartment.
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.
