All About Kitchen Backsplashes

You may have noticed that in newly constructed homes a kitchen backsplash is now typical feature installed in the kitchen. Here in Prescott most of the folks who remodel their kitchens are now including backsplashes in the project.

Why Do You Need a Kitchen Backsplash?

Do you want to protect the wall behind your stove from heavy cooking and grease stains? Do you want to stop all of that water from splashing on the wall in front of the sink? A backsplash protects a wall from those problems and from moisture buildup and water damage. It can also prevent water from dripping behind your counter.

Looks Great Too!

Backsplashes are aesthetic too. They add elegance to your kitchen and will even add some value to your home.

Backsplash Materials

Tile backsplashes are the most fashionable for most settings. The most popular type of backsplash material is ceramic tile. Tiles of marble, glass, and stone are also trending. These tiles come in a wide variety of sizes, styles, and textures. Less common backsplashes are crafted from stainless steel or wood.


How will a Kitchen Backsplash Look?

There are a number layout options for kitchen backsplashes. How the finished project will look is largely up to your personal preference. Most homeowners bring their backsplash up the wall to the base of their upper cabinets. Some stop the backsplash about halfway between the countertops and upper cabinets. Or a backsplash can run all the way up to the ceiling. If the color is fairly neutral this can actually make small kitchens look and feel larger.

Should Backsplash Material Match the Look of the Countertop?

Some homeowners use a material that is the same as the counter top. Some try to match the color closely with another material. The important thing is that the colors and textures coordinate well with the rest of the kitchen. We can help you with ideas!
