If you’ve been staring at the same walls and countertops in your kitchen for years, then it’s time to think about a renovation. You look at granite and quartz countertops in Pennsylvania, but there’s more to the remodeling than the cabinets and counters. To truly make your kitchen the most eye-appealing room in the home, there are numerous options for a tile backsplash that bring out your colors and personality.

A tile backsplash will effectively add value to your kitchen renovation, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to install. Depending on the design of your home and the look of the kitchen, you might have your eye set on a certain tile. Let’s look at the types of tile backsplashes you can install.

Stone

Due to its natural appearance and timeless qualities, stone is a great choice for any kitchen backsplash. From granite, soapstone and quartz to marble and slate, you will receive a durable stone that will stand up to wear and tear, protecting walls from grease and water splatters. If you have a design in mind, natural stone can be presented in a way that turns your visions into reality. The color options are endless, and you can choose a broad range of textures and designs. Think about some accent features, and be creative. You want the kitchen backsplash to be a representation of yourself.

If you haven’t changed the look and feel of your kitchen since you moved into your home, now may be the time. You’ve probably been pondering the idea, but haven’t thought too much of the design and style aspect. As the summer nears, there are trending designs becoming commonplace in kitchens across the country. Consider your budget and incorporate these trends into your kitchen for a modern look that stands out.

Homeowners are going for a clean look in an open concept. An island kitchen counter with cabinets extending to the ceiling makes the room appear larger and more inviting. Whether you’re looking for a complete renovation, or spot changes to certain areas, designers are seeing prevalence in the following designs.

Rise of Quartz: As an engineered stone slab, there is more and more interest in quartz slabs. They tend to be much more consistent in color and pattern than some of the other natural stones, allowing you more opportunity to match your vision. Quartz is the top choice for kitchen designers, with 88% of respondents to the National Kitchen and Bath Association's 2015 Trend Survey designing kitchens with the stone. With its engineered qualities, you can have a quartz slab that looks just like granite, or just like marble. It provides easy maintenance with its resistance to stains and bacteria, and doesn’t have to be sealed. Through its popularity, we have added Spectrum Quartz to our line of slabs.

Backsplash: Beyond the look of your countertop material, the backsplash completes the look of your kitchen. It serves the purpose of protecting the wall, adding texture to the overall design. Today, we’re seeing more and more simple backsplashes because homeowners don’t want distraction from the beautiful design. We typically see a subway tile over the sink or stove, but some glass accents are still being incorporated. A simple black subway tile with white grout is also trending.
