The perfect backsplash tile can make the difference between a room that looks dull and lifeless and one that is vibrant and artfully stylish. However, this decision might seem daunting, especially if it’s part of a larger remodel in your Parker home. Fortunately, Floor Coverings International Parker has this list of tips to consider when shopping for backsplash tile.
What to Consider When Choosing Backsplash Tile
Neutral or Bold: The first decision you will need to make when choosing your backsplash tile is whether you want to go with a neutral or bold color. Consider the colors of your cabinetry and appliances when making this choice. Too much can be too much when it comes to color. However, your backsplash is a great way to add style and pizzazz to the room if it’s lacking in other areas. Don’t forget you can create patterns with different kinds of tile as well.
Don’t Overlook The Height Aspect: Don’t make the mistake of not considering the height of your backsplash. Of course, your cabinetry will dictate this somewhat. However, you can bring backsplash tile all the way to the ceiling if it’s an open shelf design, or over a stove or sink where there aren’t any cabinets.
Understand The Differences in Tile Options: There are countless options when it comes to choosing your tile. Each type has its own specific requirements for maintenance. Slate, marble, and granite tile, for example, have to be resealed every year or so. Ceramic and porcelain tile are both made of clay and are very durable and do not require a great deal of upkeep. However, porcelain is just a bit more durable as it relates to moisture and durability.
Don’t be afraid to be bold with your tile backsplash choice. Have some fun. Feel free to think outside the box. Just make sure you do your research with these tips from Floor Coverings International Parker. We also offer free consultations to homeowners in Parker, Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch.
