Kitchen Backsplashes / August 2, 2018 / Alfred Johnson.
Walk into any home supply store and it’s easy to see that the selection of tiles for your kitchen backsplash is endless. But beyond simple tile, there are plenty of kitchen backsplash ideas to give your space extra style and a distinctive edge. Choosing something that’s a little out of the ordinary is also a great way to inject your personal style into a space that’s often a bit basic or even bland.
There are many different metals available for you to choose from when creating a backsplash. Besides the stainless steel shown for this project, there are also aluminum and copper tiles which come in many styles, designs, and finishes. If you have finally decided what kind of metal tile you will use and the wall look you want to achieve, go for it. To make the installation as perfect as possible, be sure to turn off power in the kitchen to avoid accidents with live wires and go easy on the amount of glue you use. Let the applied tiles dry for a few hours before using the stove or oven, and then prepare to enjoy your newly decorated kitchen.
The kitchen backsplash is placed on the kitchen wall between the countertops and the wall cabinets. It is meant to protect the walls from staining, especially in the zones close to your sink and stove, the places where you cook, clean, and prepare food. While your backsplash might stain, the materials it is made from will be very easy to clean and maintain.
One of the easiest, most fun and versatile ideas is to have a chalkboard backsplash. That’s because it’s easy to get right since all you have to do is paint the wall and let it dry. Then you can customize it however you want and you’ll never get bored of it. And even if you choose not to write anything on the wall, it will still look great.
