A kitchen backsplash can save your walls and other areas that are around your cooking area from food and liquid splashes that occur while you cook. You can have grease splatter, water splashes, and other food debris that can make contact with your walls while you are cooking. The backsplash will protect the wall material underneath from stains and water damage. The backsplash is heat and moisture resistant, so you don’t need to worry about the boiling liquids that you are heating either. What are some considerations when choosing a backsplash? Read on to learn.
When you put a backsplash up, it can become a focal point for your kitchen if you choose. You can make it a conversation piece. Put up a bold pattern and/or color to make your kitchen come alive. Another option you have is to have the backsplash bring the room together by picking a complementary design that finishes your kitchen. The choice is yours. One thing you might consider, though, is to make sure the room isn’t all one color where everything just mixes with everything else. It is nice to have contrast areas that draw the eye and make the space interesting. You can also choose a bold design for the backsplash or have a focal point within the backsplash that is concentrated in a specific area.
Another consideration is how large you would like the backsplash to be. Some limitations could be if you have cabinetry above the cooking area. In this instance, you would be looking for a backsplash that is just directly behind and surrounding the stove. If you have an open area above and behind the stove, you can expand the size for the backsplash. Review your space to see just how big or small you can make the backsplash that is installed. Also consider how far to the right and left you want the backsplash to go as well.
There is no limitation to the style, color, or pattern you can choose for your backsplash. Take some time to determine your décor’ wishes for your space. Consider the adjoining space as well when you choose your kitchen décor. You want to make sure that you are not choosing options that will clash with the rest of your space. Everything shouldn’t to be the same either. There are many tools you can use to coordinate all of your space, no matter which room you are concentrating on at the time.
