Kitchen remodeling is hard. From the hardware to the color scheme, there are so many design details to consider. But out of all the details, your kitchen backsplash is one that you should spend some extra time debating on. It may seem like a simple task, but with so many beautiful options available in every color, shape, size and material you could imagine, it can get complicated quickly. And the choice becomes even more difficult when you begin pairing kitchen countertops and backsplashes, (Help!)
So whether you’re overwhelmed with the possibilities or just exploring your options, we put together a step by step guide to help make the decision easier!
- Find your inspiration. Do you have a pinterest board filled with dream kitchens, or have you tore out ideas from your favorite home magazine? If not, now’s the time to start searching!
- Choose the Countertops. When you’re feeling overwhelmed with options, it’s best to focus on your countertop selection first. This will not only affect your budget, but it will also narrow down possible backsplash color and pattern. You can browse Cutstone’s website for countertop materials that appeal to you, and compare the pros and cons of your favorites.
- Choose a Material. Once you’ve honed in on a surface, it’s time to move on to your backsplash options. But before you dive in, consider choosing a material that you like first. Consider your personal style. Do you enjoy chic and clean, or do you err on the side of traditional? If you’re more traditional, you may opt for a ceramic tile, but if you are little daring you may consider glass, natural stones, or even reclaimed wood.
- Be Creative. Whether you opt for a neutral tone or go for a bold color scheme, this is your time to add personality and interest to your space.
