Choosing The Perfect Kitchen Tile Backsplash


Tile kitchen backsplashes are one of the smallest details, yet also one of the most noticeable in your kitchen. Located between the countertop and the beginning of your kitchen cabinetry, tile backsplashes come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Choosing the perfect kitchen backsplash can add personality and style to your kitchen, therefore, it’s important to choose wisely.

Tile Backsplash Colors & Materials

According to HGTV, the easiest way to choose the right color and material is to test a variety of different types. At Cornerstone Builders, we’re more than happy to visit your home for a free consultation and help you sift through backsplash ideas.

When deciding on colors for your new tile backsplash, it’s important to take your overall kitchen’s color scheme in mind. One popular option among homeowners is choosing one color for the entire kitchen and then continuing to add other color accents. With tile backsplashes, you are able to give your kitchen the perfect accent!

What Type of Tile Backsplash Do I Need?

As with anything you invest in, it’s important to remember the final use of your kitchen and tile backsplash. If you’re looking for a tile backsplash that’s easy to clean, you may want to look into installing porcelain or ceramic tile. These tiles are stain resistant, so spilling on them would not cause any permanent damage. Glass tile for tile backsplashes are also popular for this reason.

Natural stone tile backsplashes are considered a bit more risky than the glass, ceramic, or porcelain tile backsplashes. Some natural stone tile types (limestone, slate, marble) can become spotted with grease and also need to be sealed once a year. However, if installed and care for correctly, natural stone tile backsplashes can last for a lifetime.
