How to Choose the Right Backsplash to Complement Your New Kitchen Cabinets
f you're remodeling your kitchen, make sure that you also update the space between your new countertops and cabinets as well. Backsplashes are a functional yet beautiful feature of your kitchen. Not only do they keep your walls from staining, but they can also give your kitchen the splash of color or texture you need to bring it to life. Here are some tips for choosing the right backsplash to complement your kitchen cabinets:
Start with Style
Since you've already chosen beautiful cabinets for your kitchen remodel, use them as a starting point for determining the style of your kitchen's backsplash. If your cabinets have an Old World feel, consider a classic Tuscan-style backsplash. For a more modern cabinet style, go for something metallic or shiny for your backsplash.
Develop a Budget
Although backsplashes are a fairly inexpensive feature to have professionally installed in your new kitchen, material costs for things like wood paneling and tile can fluctuate depending on what you choose. Include your new backsplash in your kitchen remodeling budget to make sure you get what you want without breaking the bank.
Look for materials that fit within the scope of your kitchen cabinets' theme or style. Backsplashes can be made out of many different materials, but there are certain materials that are found most often. Tile backsplashes are popular in everything from country to cutting-edge kitchen design. Sheet metal is sometimes found in more modern kitchens, or those with a commercial or industrial feel. Wainscoting is a great option if it is used in the rest of your kitchen or dining area.
