A backsplash can be used in a kitchen or bathroom to create a splash of color, pull together the old and new or to completely redesign the space. There are many things to take into consideration when choosing the right backsplash product for your kitchen remodel or bathroom remodel. The first thing to think about is what kind of aesthetic are you trying to acheive: are you looking to match it to an older countertop for a more lived-in, homely feel or are you hoping for a state-of-the-art contemporary space where appliances, flooring and countertops are being replaced with upscale products?
The price you pay will be dependent upon different aspects such as the brand you choose, color, design and the materials used. For instance, a granite backsplash is likely to cost much more than subway tiles, but each has its own pros and cons. A small backsplash project can be completed by a homeowner but for more intricate installations we suggest you contact a professional to do the work.
