A backsplash home improvement project helps add visual interest to your kitchen.
A kitchen backsplash can add just the right pop of color to warm up the space, or it can be used to tie the different elements of the room together. And backsplashes are fast becoming a popular part of kitchen improvement and home design.
The Options Are Endless
“In the past, people would use the same material as the countertop or use a solid color for their backsplash,” says Joe Maykut, director of product management for Sears Home Improvement Products in Longwood, Florida. “But there’s such a variety of materials these days, you can choose a great pattern to tie in with other areas of the kitchen — the cabinets, the flooring — rather than choose something monochrome and matching.”
Especially with today’s trend for white or generally monochromatic kitchens, a backsplash behind the sink and/or stove offers an opportunity for pops of color and texture, and a way to showcase your own unique style.
