The kitchen backsplash guide for your upcoming remodel

Are you remodeling your kitchen and looking for the perfect backsplash? There are many different options to choose from, and it can be difficult to decide on the right one. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most popular backsplash materials and help you decide which is the best fit for your kitchen renovation.

What is a kitchen backsplash?

A backsplash is a protective wall covering installed behind a kitchen sink, stovetop, or other appliance. Backsplashes can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, marble, glass, stone and Quartz. As a vertical surface, foot traffic and slip resistance are not concerns, which means you can choose from almost any size, shape, or texture.

Type of kitchen backsplashs

Porcelain walltile are a popular choice for kitchen backsplashes because they are durable and easy to clean. They come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find the perfect match for your kitchen. Porcelain tiles are also moisture-resistant, so they are a good choice for kitchens that get wet often.

Glass wall tiles are another popular backsplash material. Glass tiles are available in a wide range of colors and styles, so you can find the perfect match for your kitchen. Glass tiles are also easy to clean and maintain. However, glass tiles are not as durable as porcelain tiles and may require more maintenance over time.

Stone wall tiles are a natural choice for kitchen backsplashes. Stone tiles are available in fewer choices compared to glass and porcelain. However, its natural beauty is unmatched. Similar to a granite countertop, stone wall backsplash requires maintenance. We recommend sealing the stone backsplash every 6 months. More frequent sealing could be required depending on cooking behavior.

Quartz backsplash has rising popularity in recent years. Quartz will be an easy match and flow with the counter. The pricing for quartz backsplash will be higher than other types but it will save you time in cleaning in the future. A quartz backsplash may have a seam but not grout lines, this saves home owner the trouble of cleaning grout using a toothbrush.

Tile backsplash styles

Subway tile style is a popular type of backsplash. It is made up of square tiles that are set in a horizontal or vertical pattern. Subway tile is a versatile choice that can be used in any kitchen style, and it is available in a variety of colors and sizes.

Mosaic tile style is another popular backsplash choice. Mosaic tiles are smaller than subway tiles and are set in a variety of patterns. Mosaic tiles can be made from a variety of materials, including glass, stone, and metal.

Herringbone and chevron are usually in sheets and have many different sizes. Quartz backsplash is in slabs and much larger in size.
