The backsplash of your kitchen serves multiple roles: not only is the backsplash an area where splattered sauce and other foods collect and can easily be removed, but it’s also a decorative focal point of the kitchen that can be eye-catching and show off your style. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we are more than happy to help you design a backsplash, pick out the right material for your backsplash, and install your backsplash. As you consider your vision for your kitchen backsplash, here are some ideas to inspire you—
Obviously, the material that you choose for your backsplash is about more than just the material itself—it’s a styling statement. Common types of materials for backsplashes include:
Of these, ceramic tiles are usually the least expensive and are probably the most common material used for backsplashes. However, the other materials can make more of a statement and may complement other design elements of your kitchen. All of the materials above are reasonably durable and can last well for years to come.
In addition to the best material for the job, it’s important to think about how different materials, patterns, colors, and styles will complement or detract from other design elements of your kitchen. In fact, when thinking about design, one of the most important considerations is that of how the backsplash you are envisioning will complement or contrast with your existing floor, countertops, and cabinets. Do you want to spotlight the backsplash, or keep it more neutral so attention is focused elsewhere?
One of the most limiting factors when replacing a backsplash can be the cost. Depending on your budget, what you choose for your backsplash may be impacted by the cost of materials. Of the materials listed above, ceramic is usually the least expensive, as well as one of the most versatile, as it can come in a variety of colors and patterns. If you’re only adding a backsplash to a small area, however, you may have more flexibility in your budget.
