At Legacy Bath and Kitchen, we help with a new backsplash San Antonio homeowners can count on for both functionality and style!
If you watch kitchen design shows on television, one of the first topics of conversation is usually the backsplash. That’s because the backsplash can be an important piece of your kitchen design. With a variety of colors, shapes, and textures picking and designing your kitchen’s backsplash should be a fun and easy process.
Your kitchen should reflect your home and your personal taste. Do you like light and bright? Are you more into deep and contrasting colors? Either way our talented team of designers can accommodate and complete your kitchen’s feel with the addition of a new backsplash.
Get Inspired For Your Backsplash Remodel!
When you make the decision to replace or install a backsplash, it’s a great idea to get inspired. Try Googling or looking on Pinterest for current kitchens you admire. Bringing our team ideas of what styles you like in your kitchen can help us start in the right direction. If you’re not sure what factors to consider when exploring materials and styles you might like, take a look at these 5 backsplash must-knows.
Traditional backsplashes are usually about 4 inches high based at the edge of the countertop. More modern designs have used taller backsplashes that stretch up to the bottom of the cabinets – or even all the way to the ceiling in some cases! If you like the look of taller backsplashes, keep in mind the cost is going to be a bit more to cover more square feet.
Also, one of the main purposes of a backsplash is as a tool to protect your wall from splashes and liquids during cooking. If you do a lot of messy cooking or need more protection, a taller backsplash might work for you. However, if you’re not worried about liquids getting on your wall, a traditional height might be just fine and still look great in your kitchen!
Your backsplash is going to come directly into contact with your countertops. It’s really important to look at both materials together closely to avoid any disconnect between the two styles. You don’t want highly conflicting patterns and colors that will look strange in your kitchen, but you also don’t want to exactly match your countertops either. Think of and explore styles that complement each other for the best flow.
For the best kitchen design you should have a couple of focal points that are the stars of the show. More than a couple and your kitchen will begin to look very busy and disconnected. Most times the kitchen focal points are above the range and the sink. This where your backsplash can either really make a statement or support the focal points in the room.
A backsplash with interesting shapes or colors against a calm kitchen design could be just the pop you need to make your kitchen sparkle. Keep in mind that a fresh and solid backsplash can also help highlight other pieces in your kitchen like countertops or cabinets.
Choosing the material of your backsplash may seem all about colors and aesthetics, but you should pay attention to their functionality too. Materials like stone that may look really great on the wall are difficult to clean and may need re-sealing to keep them from absorbing liquids. Evaluate the needs of your kitchen: Do you cook a lot? Do you create a lot of splashes or moisture when you cook? Are there accidents or unexpected spills you clean up often? A different material like ceramic or glass might make more sense for the life in your kitchen!
Your budget should always be a good filter for types of backsplash. Even if you have a tight budget your kitchen can still become the kitchen of your dreams. Just be aware that materials like stone and glass can quickly break your budget whereas creative ideas like adhesive backsplashes can be versatile and adaptable options.
