Backsplash Tiles Work Wonders
If you’re limited in space in your kitchen, and most are, backsplash tile will work wonders in your kitchen and bring it to life. Today many decorators are looking for something to stand out in a drab kitchen where even the appliances match the granite top, and where walls are limited.
They also get away from matching backsplashes because of the expense when the countertops are granite or solid service; tile steps up to the plate with new designs that draw attention away from the drab. Tile backsplashes are as varied as kitchens and they have unusual designs that will be unique whether in your kitchen, laundry room, or bathroom. Don’t limit the areas because they’ve also been used in dining rooms to protect the wall from chair scrapes.
Once you’ve worked in a kitchen where the backsplash covers the wall behind the counter and stove, you’ll never want to be without one. Splashes of food and water are a thing of the past and will clean off with the touch of a damp cloth.
If your home has a color theme, you can extend the color into your kitchen with the backsplash. They come with patterns and a variety of available colors. The more intricate the pattern, the more it will cost. When you’re on a budget, be careful for the smaller pieces add up and it takes a professional to install them.
When you like the countertops in your kitchen or bathrooms, you can still install new backsplash tile, but again, it takes professionals to install them. They don’t have to cover the entire wall between the countertop and cupboards, and there are attractive border tiles installed right on your countertop. Or you can install them on top of the plain tile. The choices are yours.
The tile effect is not limited to your kitchen or bathrooms. Tile mosaics are popular when installed on a bare wall, and that skilled professional will help you with the exact effect you desire. There again, be cautious especially when on a budget. Tile can be very expensive especially when you choose a variety of colors and designs.
Don’t let the cost scare you away. Where there is a will, there is a way, and that works for tile also. If you find the cost is above your pay grade, there are many cheaper styles and designs that will fit in any budget, and once they’re installed no one will ever know that you cut corners.
