Choose your style. A kitchen backsplash is the finishing touch that can make or break a room so it must be in sync with the rest of the kitchen. Backsplash designs really do work best when they echo the kitchen theme. It just doesn't make sense to have a retro style backsplash in a French country kitchen. Create the mood. In addition to the size, pattern, and shape, there is a factor much harder to put into words: aesthetics. Your choice of material, as well as pattern, should reflect the mood you hope to achieve. Do you prefer rustic or modern, subdued or vibrant, sleek or textured? Every material has a different character.
You could additionally choose ceramic tiles because they possess the similar benefits as that of the glass tiles. They're available within various colors and could be utilized to create attractive and interesting backsplash tiling designs. Granite and porcelain will be other choices to search for, if searching for ideas for the mosaic backsplashes for your kitchen, other than the glass tilings. All of these tiles will also be as durable as glass tiles; yet need sealing.
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.
Affordability: The average cost to reface a kitchen will be anywhere between $3,500 to 6,500 depending on the size of the kitchen. The average cost to replace a kitchen starts at around $20,000 to $40,00. The reason is simple, refacing makes use of your old, structurally sound cabinets. Why tear out perfectly good cabinets, only to replace them with perfectly good cabinets? The truth is, your old cabinets are often better constructed than today's cabinets. This is one of the reasons why refacing was such a great idea 35 years ago and is still going strong today.
Transformation: Kitchen refacing is such an amazing transformation in a very short time period. Your kitchen will look and feel brand new, no one will be able to tell it was refaced. After all, the doors, handles, molding and countertops are all brand new and the existing cabinet boxes have all been covered to match your doors and drawer fronts. Longevity: Refaced cabinets will last as long as new cabinets and easily hold up to 20 years of normal wear and tear. Any repairs that are needed to your refaced cabinets are usually minor and very simple to repair. In most cases, refacers offer a 5 year warranty.
