Thinking of moving soon? One of the top recommendations for adding value to your home is to update or remodel your kitchen. After all, the kitchen is the center gathering point of the home.
Yet kitchen remodels are also on the top of the budget scale, and not necessarily something you want to take on if you are thinking of moving anyway.
An easier way to refresh your kitchen and give it a new look and new appeal is to add a modern backsplash instead. Tile backsplashes can be changed out quickly, can be redone without ripping out countertops or cabinetry, and can change an appearance instantly with just a little work. Need some ideas?
Always add focus and interest to the main cooking area in the kitchen. Usually the biggest area in your kitchen is above the stove, which means it’s the best place to add visual interest. Choose tile with contrast and pattern to develop your look and feel, followed by more subtle tiles to continue the color theme throughout the rest of your kitchen.
Colors and Hues
One of the most popular choices right now is a mosaic color glass tile backsplash. Those tiny tiles in an array of colors can add variety to an otherwise dull kitchen. Keep in mind that lots of color in the backsplash should play off a more monochrome countertop; too much color could leave your kitchen feeling busy.
Mix and Match
Its easy to walk into a tile store and fall in love with some of the most beautiful tile on display. Yet when you price it, you are in for the shock of your life. Fancy, elaborate tile is meant for accents, not to use throughout your kitchen. Talk with the tile consultant about how to build structure around your favorite tiles by limiting the amount of expensive tile to a central area, and surrounding it with a less expensive matching tile.
Who says all tile has to be laid horizontally or vertically? In some cases, you can create a unique look and feel by rotating the tile and playing things up. Try laying subway tile in a diagonal pattern to change your focal point.
Before you begin adhering tile to the wall, make sure you walk the tile up the wall from bottom to top to get the full look. In many cases, people start at the bottom and lay the tile in place, only to find out that the top area needs only a sliver of tile to finish the look. In order to create more uniformity, make sure you see the look before you begin installing. It may mean cutting a little off both the top and the bottom tile in order to create the look you are trying to achieve.
