Tips for DIY Installing the Perfect Kitchen Backsplash

The backsplash evolved from necessity, as a way to protect kitchen walls from damage. Over the years, the backsplash has become so much more: a way of personalizing a space many consider to be the heart of the home, as well as to provide a seamless transition from countertop to wall. A kitchen without a backsplash is like a picture without a frame — backsplashes complete the space and add the perfect finishing touch to tie your room together.

Say Hello to a New Kitchen Backsplash

If you have decided to remodel your outdated tile kitchen backsplash or install one of the many unique kitchen backsplashes available, here are a few important tips to help you navigate the process:

Consider Your Countertops

A common but huge mistake that many homeowners unknowingly make is selecting a tile kitchen backsplash that clashes with their countertops or cabinets. A good way to prevent this is by taking home many different samples of tile. Even if the first impression of the sample is that it doesn’t match, you may be pleasantly surprised by how well different types of materials, sizes, shapes, colors and styles can compliment each other.

Consider Your Materials

Classic kitchen backsplashes were typically ceramic tile. Today, if your individual style calls for something different, there are many unique materials available that can be used to create a backsplash unique to your home. From an eye-catching glass tile mosaic to the timeless elegance of a travertine backsplash, it’s critical to select the material that works best for you and for your project. Flooring Masters & Professional Remodelers offer installation services that will bring your ideal backsplash to life.

Consider the Value of a Backsplash

A new or updated backsplash can easily add value to your home and help it stand out from others. The kitchen is one of the most important selling features, and a stylish backsplash will leave a positive impression on even the most particular buyers.

It’s very important that the backsplash is designed and installed well, otherwise it achieves the opposite effect and detracts from your home’s beauty and value. Flooring Masters & Professional Remodelers will make sure that you get the most value from your backsplash with skillfully executed professional installation that truly makes all the difference.

Whether your new backsplash is part of making your dream kitchen a reality or to market your home for selling, a crooked or uneven tile installation is an eye sore. Using Flooring Masters & Professional Remodelers will give you confidence that your kitchen will be a true show-stopper that stands the test of time.
