Kitchen Backsplashes / September 24, 2018 / Anthony Williams.
Any kind of backsplash can look good if you know how to install it. For example, this glass tile mosaic has a random pattern and the tiles interlock like pieces of a puzzle. In a way, this makes it easy to get an overall cohesive look. So here’s how you install them. First mix up the mortar. Apply it with a trowel and gradually press the tiles in. keep going one row at a time. Mosaic tiles are one of the easiest to install because they’re small in height and because of the random pattern.
This next project is a little bit tricky to create and because of the material used, a little more expensive, but it does look wonderful once installed. Stainless steel tiles can make for a dramatic backsplash look, but the entire kitchen space will also feel the impact. Although the installation steps may look like rocket science expertise is required, these tiles are very easy to install, they do not require grouting, and will last forever.
If you really want to add some eye-catching focal points with personality to your house, I suggest you to pay close attention to this project. In this kitchen of repurposed cabinets, the powerful collage of colored elements automatically draws your focus. This stunning mosaic backsplash is made entirely of mixed tiles. The idea and project is really simple but the finished result is fantastic. Cheap and simple, what’s not to like?
The options for kitchen backsplashes are pretty much limitless in terms of material, color, size and cost. Ultimately, you’ll have to decide what’s best for you and your lifestyle. Knowing how to navigate the process of installing a new backsplash can help ease some of the stress. Here’s what to expect.
