You’re building the kitchen of your dreams. You have a vision in your head of what the cabinets will look like and the unique look for your countertops that will wow your guests. Have you thought about how you’ll accentuate your range with a backsplash? The backsplash, placed behind your stove, is one piece of that can tie the entire kitchen together. It is the bridge between your custom cabinets and your carefully chosen countertops. Having a backsplash adds to the overall beauty of the kitchen; it is a small touch that yields a large effect.

There are many different materials to choose from for your backsplash. Ceramic tile is a popular choice that has minimal maintenance and can enhance any kitchen. Ceramic tile is also a cost-effective choice for your backsplash if you are looking to focus funds on larger aspects of your remodel. One concern remodelers have with ceramic tile is that it can be fragile. Fear not – one benefit of working with Cornerstone Builders is that we offer a lifetime warranty on your kitchen as long as you live in the home. So, if you do end up needing to replace a tile or two, just give us a call and we will happily fix it. (Yes, it is just that simple!)

Another backsplash choice that is growing in popularity is the use of glass tiles. Glass tiles are a top selection because they are available in a wide variety of colors and shapes, adding pizazz to many kitchens. Their simplicity coupled with the bounteous options for color themes and arrangements make glass tiles ideal for creating intrigue among guests visiting your abode.

If you are a fan of employing varying textures, you might consider sculpted limestone for your backsplash. This particular style truly pops with installed lighting under your cabinets, as it creates dramatic shadows and highlights between the curves of the limestone. Such lighting can add a more three-dimensional look to your backsplash.

For a classic and clean-cut look, the use of subway tile in the kitchen is impressive. You can upgrade this traditional style to have a more modern feel by adding stainless steel inserts in between the rows of subway tiles. If you’d prefer using stainless steel alone, go for it! A stainless steel backsplash offers style and, as a bonus, is often scratch-resistant. What more could you want with an upscale, modern look?

No matter which type of backsplash you choose, it will surely kick your kitchen’s design up a notch. While an often overlooked detail, you’ll love the added benefit of having a backsplash protect your kitchen wall in style.
