Protect your walls from kitchen grime with a stylish tile backsplash

Those small patches of wall above your countertops and below your cabinets seem to attract pasta sauce and oil splatter. Installing a tile kitchen backsplash in this space can save you not only from dirty walls, but also from repainting your kitchen over and over.

In addition to protecting painted walls, kitchen backsplashes add a unique design touch that enhances your décor. You can choose tile with different textures, patterns, and from a variety of material such as:

  • Glass
  • Ceramic
  • Metals – bronze, copper, etc.
  • Stainless steel
  • Stone
  • Mosaic
  • Subway tile
  • And more

Not all tiles are appropriate for backsplashes as some are porous and will stain easily. When choosing wall tile, you’ll need to decide on the style as well as these properties: scratch hardness, wear rating, and water absorption. Keep in mind that different tile materials have different properties.

Also, improper installation can cause costly rework. So, consider calling a professional to discuss your options for tile selection, grouting, and installation.
