The nice thing about using tile as a backspash is that it comes is a huge variety of sizes, colors, textures and shapes. It is even possible to have custom painted tiles to match any theme of design. In addition a tile backsplash can be easy to install, as well as easy to clean. Many design experts say that you should consider keeping it simple by choosing the same tile for your kitchen backsplash as you've chosen for the floor - just in a smaller size.
If you are going with the smooth subway tiles for a modern feel to your kitchen, the grouting is much easier and let's not forget why we install these things called "backsplashes." We don't paint behind the kitchen counter very often because it will find spaghetti sauce, red wine, and food pieces. When a blender sprays 300 red droplets all over your backsplash is when you will love your smooth subway tile best. Cleanup will be a wet paper towel. Hey, that's why they used them in the subway back in the day!
With stone backsplashes, your options are a standard backsplash and a full backsplash. With stone based products (i.e. granite, quartz), the industry standard backsplash is 4" high; custom sizes can be made depending on design preferences. Sometimes people factor in light switch heights, wall mirrors, or other items around the kitchen or bathroom to determine the height of their backsplash. Stone backsplashes can be cut around light switches if necessary. In most cases, the thickness of the stone backsplash will match the thickness of the horizontal surface.
Kitchens require lots of light for safety when cooking. Along with adding safety to your kitchen, lights can set the tone of the whole space. Like cabinets, flooring, and countertops, there are many lighting options for your kitchen. A good option for kitchens are several can lights, pendant lights over a bar/breakfast bar area, and under-cabinet lighting. Lighting is also a good way to make some energy-efficient choices through choosing LED or fluorescent bulbs.
