Few things perk up a kitchen like a new, professionally installed backsplash. Next to cabinetry and flooring, backsplash tile is one of the most effective ways to evoke mood in the heart of your home. From sleek and contemporary subway tile to earthy natural stone, change the whole look and mood of your kitchen simply by changing out the backsplash.
Here are some of Floor Coverings International Chandler-Gilbert’s favorite backsplash selections for your Gilbert home:
Subway tile has been a staple kitchen backsplash tile for years, with standard tiles in size 3 inches by 6 inches. But today’s homeowners are fearless. Oversized tiles with measurements up to 4 inches by 12 inches are now popping up in kitchens all across the nation. Subway tile is modern, it’s easy to keep clean, and it adds the illusion of space to even the smallest room.
Glass is a gorgeous option when it comes to creating a tile backsplash. Available in unlimited colors, shapes and sizes, homeowners often choose to imbed mosaics into the designs of their glass tile backsplashes. This makes for a one-of-a-kind option that’s singular to your home. Glass is easy to clean and to maintain, requiring little more than a simple wipe down with a damp cloth to keep it looking new. Most glass tiles used in backsplashes measure 1 inch by 1 inch, with tiles of varying shapes and sizes available for those who wish to create unique mosaic designs.
You’ve heard of granite countertops, but did you know that granite also makes an eye-catching backsplash? Besides increasing your home’s resale value, granite gives a consistent look throughout the kitchen when the same granite used in your countertops also extend up your walls. You can also try incorporating granite tile (interspersed with other tile materials) as a statement feature above your stove or sink.
