This small space behind the stove and in between the counter top and kitchen cabinets has gained a lot of attention in the last five years. Remodeling an entire home is an expensive and time-consuming job, however play with little spaces such as kitchen backsplash is affordable and fun! Even if you are not a DIY person, hiring a contractor to do a kitchen backsplash shouldn't be expensive in most part of United States, and ultimately, your kitchen will have a fresh look.
The question is: Where do I start? Well if you look to your kitchen from outside - I would say five to ten feet from the entrance, you will notice a color pattern. Assuming you are happy with it, you can start by picturing the backsplash covered by a nice glass mosaic tile or, if you have stainless steel appliances, just coordinate it with stainless steel tiles.
In terms of colors, following the same color pattern is a "no mistake" path and you can even use darker or lighter tones to create a nice contrast. Also because of most glass tiles come in form of mosaics, you can pick a blend instead of solid colors. That will give a lot of character to your kitchen backsplash.
Aluminum mosaic tile is another option if you are looking for a contemporary or modern look. It s also available in blends, and you will be surprised by the number of colors available such as chocolate, blue, champagne, copper, grey, black, and charcoal.
