The backsplash of a kitchen is always considered to be a personality piece, meaning it always reflects your own personal style. It should also showcase the general color scheme of your kitchen itself. Regardless, it’s an amazing opportunity to be creative. Unfortunately, there are times where the backsplash is often one of the last details thought of when it comes to kitchen design.

Thankfully, there are a few things that you can keep in mind when it comes to selecting a backsplash for your kitchen. Here are three of those factors.

Use Your Budget Wisely

If you are on a budget, consider using classic materials such as white ceramic rather than going with something that’s more trendy. Classic materials can cost only less than one dollar per square foot as well. If there is a lot of area that needs to be covered, think about including metal panels to help with this, as this option won’t cause you to have to spend a great deal of money.

Consider Options that are Eco-Friendly

Materials such as cork mosaic tiles are great for both floors and walls; however, they can also be used for a kitchen backsplash as well. This is because the tiles are made completely out of bamboo. Additionally, you can also consider using recycled glass tiles, which are stain-resistant, durable, and come in a wide variety of color choices.

Don’t Make Common Mistakes

When ordering backsplash tile from a supplier, always ask about the following three factors in order to avoid making common mistakes:

*Trim pieces

*If their primary tile is thicker than their decorative tile

*If your tile choice is in stock
