Backsplashes FAQs

Backsplashes are a vital part of your kitchen, whether for visual appeal or functionality. We know you have questions about backsplashes, so read along to see the answers to some of our most common questions.

FAQs related to backsplashes

Where should a backsplash stop?

The truth is, every kitchen is different with regards to visuals and performance, so it is entirely up to you where your backsplash stops. Some homeowners choose to go to the end of a wall, and some prefer that it touch the upper cabinets, but your preferences come first.

Are glass tiles durable enough for a kitchen backsplash?

In their uninstalled state, glass tiles can be rather delicate, but their durability level increases once installed correctly. You’ll find they are completely waterproof and easily resist stains, fading, mold, and mildew growth, and offer an excellent lifespan.

What’s the best backsplash material for a kitchen?

The short answer is the one that best fits your requirements for the room. Be sure to honestly assess your needs for durability, performance, and appearance, as this will dictate the product that will serve you best.

What should I know about grouting my backsplash?

If the space between tiles is less than one-eighth of an inch, non-sanded grout is the best choice. However, gaps larger than one-eighth of an inch requires a sanded grout that prevents grout contraction.

Other types of grout are available, and your remodeling associate can help choose the one that best suits your needs. Call or visit us today for more information.
