Four More Kitchen-Backsplash Tile Tips
Tip #6: Focus on mixing your design, not matching it
Intentional contrast creates an inspired style and feel to any kitchen. When it comes to your backsplash, consider how it fits in with the other style and design elements in your kitchen. Does it clash with the countertop or contrast effectively to create an elegant look? Consider stacking your tiles vertically instead of horizontally, if you’re going for a contemporary look.
Tip #7: Choose the magnetized material for convenience
Have you ever seen the backsplash tile that attracts magnets and other kitchen tools and utensils? It may be beneficial to find a tile material that’s magnetized to help organize your kitchen-counter space. You can store knives, utensils, kitchen components, and more on your backsplash, clearing the counter for other uses.
Tip #8: Ask about material durability
Ceramic and porcelain are both elegant, wonderful materials. They offer various designs and styles to enhance your kitchen. However, porcelain is denser than ceramic, even though both are made from clay, which offers a more durable tile. Consider the density and durability of your tile when choosing the material for your kitchen backsplash.
Tip #9: Great grout saves you money
You may not consider getting the best grout for your tile installation, but that would be a mistake. If you want to invest in tile for your kitchen backsplash, you want it to last a lifetime. This means you need to get the best grout for the job.
Bonus Tip: Set a budget, choose a tile
If you’re going to remodel your kitchen entirely or simply replace the backsplash, set your budget before you even go shopping. It’s always helpful to have a number when choosing the best kitchen backsplash tile. At Transworld Tile, we have hundreds of tile options from glass, porcelain, ceramic, to marble and more.
