How to Select a Backsplash that Fits Your Lifestyle

This is where you would want to consider your overall decorating style. Do you prefer a minimalist, contemporary, mid century modern, or traditional? These are just a few common interior design styles.

Matching your style does not have to be an exact when it comes to the backsplash. This is where you can allow yourself to color outside of the normal lines of your design style. This is one of the most economical and impactful areas of designing your home. Live a little for this one!

Countless times clients have selected items from a picture only thinking of the aesthetics of the kitchen instead of considering the function.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • How often will you cook using the stove top?
  • What will you be cooking? Do you fry many foods? Boil pasta? Etc. 

Now think of that backsplash surface. Will it be easy to maintain the color with cleaning?

Budgeting for Backsplash Designs

When you determine your budget then this is where you can fine tune the selections based on price.  Remember the area of the space that needs to be measured to determine a final price.
