Affordable Options for Kitchen Backsplashes

Posted on August 18th, 2014 by

Whether you are looking to refresh the look of a dated kitchen or are add the finishing touches to a full kitchen remodel, installing a new backsplash is a very inexpensive decorative touch to unify the elements of the room, create a bold focal point, and add an additional texture for interest – not to mention, it will also protect the walls and cabinetry. 

One of the more affordable and popular options for kitchen backsplash is tile. Today’s tiles come in many different materials, colors, and textures. Glass, for instance, can vary in texture, color and translucency, and are a great way to introduce color and complexity without overwhelming the room.

The more traditional ceramic or porcelain tiles can be used creatively as well. Use small tiles to design a mosaic in the open space behind the sink or stove or add a punch of color by using vibrant tiles to break up a more neutral space. Ceramic and porcelain tiles come in various shapes and sizes which can also add another design dimension to the overall space.

If tiles do not provide the unique appearance you’re in search of, consider adding a vinyl backsplash. Vinyl in Carrollton often comes in sheets, and often has an intense shine that can provide the unique look you’re trying to attain. Select a plain color or an interesting pattern for a durable backsplash that is easy to clean. Vinyl can also mimic natural textures like wood or stone for a great look without the high price tag.

When substitutes won’t do, there are still some great ways to bring in natural materials with wood. Create a panel effect with leftover wood flooring such as cherry, oak, bamboo, cork, or exotic woods. The warmth of wood can be used to balance the warmth or coolness of the lights and colors in the room.
