A kitchen backsplash protects the wall when you are cooking so you'll want to choose a material that is easy to clean if you're a home-cooked meal aficionado. Once you've picked a few favorite products, consider the timelessness of each one. You don't want your backsplash to look outdated in a few years. Several easy to clean types of tile are perennial backsplash favorites.
- All porcelain and glazed ceramic tile repel water. Edge treatments and accessories, as well as many grout colors, are available.
- Glass tile is sophisticated and colorful, and it brightens a kitchen because of its reflective nature. Glass is naturally non-porous so it never needs to be sealed.
- Metal tile is available in various sizes, textures, and finishes. Brushed stainless steel subway tiles are particularly popular.
- Travertine tile gives your kitchen an Old World look. This high-end natural stone must be sealed with a stone sealant to prevent staining.
Creativity can run amok with bathroom backsplashes. First, consider the overall size of the backsplash and plan its boundaries. The location of the sink and size of the bathroom will define the project. The backsplash area can be an accent section behind the sink. Or you may want to create a border with the backsplash material or even cover an entire wall. Create an elegant look with tumbled stone or add some color to the room with sheets of mosaic tile.
