A kitchen is often said to be the soul of any house.

And why not? It is where we start our day with a coffee, gather our friends, and prepare those memorable Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

Since it is a very social place, especially for families that entertain a lot, it is also a place that receives a lot of scrutiny. We honestly don’t know if it will be an exaggeration to say that a kitchen receives more scrutiny on Thanksgiving than a well-dressed woman on New Year’s Eve. But jokes aside, it is often a focal point of attention for not only visitors but future homebuyers as well.

This is why you want your kitchen to have all the right elements: a good countertop, the right design elements, a color scheme, etc. We get it, we get it. Remodeling a kitchen costs a lot, it is overwhelming and there is so much that goes into making sure that your kitchen feels just right…But before you board that train of thought, Breathe!!! It is okay to freak out and take it one step at a time. In fact, it is better to speak to professionals and do your research so you know what you are getting into.

We are almost certain there’s also a possibility that your kitchen can be redeemed with some small changes rather than a full overhaul. We want to assure you that it is okay to take it one step at a time and figure it out with professional help.

If you have decided to switch things up, try creating a new backsplash this coming year. It is one of the easiest (and cheapest!!) elements to play with and can give your kitchen a fresh look instantly. Here’s what you need to know:

Why Is a Backsplash Important, The primary reason for getting a backsplash in your kitchen is to protect it.

They are installed on the walls behind the kitchen counter, sink, etc and act as a shield against oil splashes and potential water damage. We can’t reiterate how important it is, given that a kitchen is a highly volatile zone when it comes to unwanted moisture. A solid backsplash is the right course of action to protect the walls and the paint too.

When it comes to different types of backsplashes, tile backsplashes are very durable and there’s a lot of versatility. Now, even if you decide to go with a tile backsplash, you’ll still be left choosing between different types of tiles. To understand what to choose, you need to know about the basics of installing a backsplash first.

1. Understand Focus
There are some areas in a kitchen that your eyes are naturally drawn to. You can narrow these to the area above the range and the sink. Any decorative backsplash design is best suited for these areas.

2. Purpose
The primary purpose of installing a backsplash is to protect the wall. While selecting the backsplash, ensure that the material is reliable and can sustain itself against grease and water damage.

There is a lot of attention to detail that goes into installing a backsplash in a kitchen and we can say that a perfect one has the right splash of aesthetics and functionality, and can truly liven up your kitchen space.

3. Maintenance
Every material has its unique needs. For instance, glass tiles are on the higher-end of the budget spectrum, while granite tiles require resealing every year. Before finalizing on the type of tile, you need to understand how much time and energy you can spare to maintain the resulting backsplash. We recommend studying materials very carefully, and speaking to a professional if necessary.
