Froung. kitchen backsplash. June 29th , 2017.
If you wish to attract more visual attention, then consider playing with patterns and designs to fill up the space. Experts recommend experimenting with broader designs over the sink area as it is considered as a high impact zone. Research for contemporary kitchen designs and create a more refined look for the kitchen with amazing backsplash ideas.
With full backsplashes, the splash will go all the way up to the upper cabinets of the kitchen. This height is typically +/- 18" but can be custom made if necessary. In order to do a full height backsplash correctly, it normally requires that a second trip be made to install the backsplash. The reason for this is that the deck of the countertop should be installed to get the most accurate measurements. That template will then need to be cut and installed separately. It is important with granite that the backsplash be cut from the same lot of material so that there will be no color variation. Keep this in mind when considering adding on a granite splash at a later date; this is not recommended.
The use of inserts add to the overall look of the backsplash. Generally use a 2 inch insert with a six inch tile. A 1 inch insert with a four inch tile. Placement of inserts is a matter of personal preference. Word of caution. Do not use to many inserts. Inserts are only used to accent the tile design, not to be the focal point.
Ordering a correct amount of tiles required for installation is very important step. For that you need to measure the area from top to bottom and also the horizontal area.
