How to Create Kitchen Backsplash Designs In Tile
If you want to remodel or update your current kitchen, or if you are planning to build your dream home, you should consider adding a tile backsplash to your kitchen to accent the theme of the room.
A tile backsplash is a subtle way to draw out accent colors or break up long wall spaces. Of the many different materials available for creating kitchen backsplash designs, tile is one of the more popular. This is because tiles come in so many different colors, sizes, and textures. They also stand up admirably to the grime and temperature extremes of a kitchen.
The first step is to draw out some possible kitchen backsplash designs. Measure the area you want to tile, and then sketch out your thoughts and ideas. Be creative with your kitchen backsplash designs. You may choose to create borders or accents using decorative pieces. You can also lay the tiles in different directions to create an eye-catching pattern.
Before you select your winning design, take some time to check out local tile stores and home improvement stores to visualize your options and create a budget. See if you can take a few samples home and compare them to your wall or floor color. If your kitchen floor is also tiled, you may choose to use the same type of tiles but in a smaller size for the backsplash.
After you decided on your tiles, make a basic design on a piece of graph paper to guide you as you set and grout your tiles. Double check your measurements before beginning, remembering to leave space for the grout.
