What Kind of Backsplash Should I Get?


One of the great ways to give your kitchen a healthy dose of character is to add a beautiful backsplash to your walls. A backsplash can set the tone for your kitchen, making it feel earthy, classic, modern, or industrial. It works to draw the eye to your chosen focal point in the kitchen and, depending on the type of backsplash you get, can really open up the space to make it feel bigger. And while there are no wrong options for a backsplash, each material that can be used for it comes with different things you may have to consider, so let's take a look at the most popular options for backsplashes and figure out which one might be a good fit for you!

1. Glass Tile
