A Little Tile Can Go a Mile in the World of Design
Tile backsplashes can make a tremendous difference in a kitchen remodel. Tile, just like cabinets, countertops, and appliances, gets outdated. If you update the rest of your kitchen, but ignore the tile on the walls, it can undermine the “new” look you were striving for.
Many items in a remodel are limited in personality. Not tile. While a refigerator or cabinet upgrade will definitely improve the appearance of a kitchen, the tile is where you can really express your style. The choices in tile are stunningly vast. Every kind of natural stone is available-granite, slate, travertine, marble, sandstone, quartzite, rock and even stone mosaics. Wall tiles are also available in ceramic, stone, metal, porcelain, glass, rock, stainless steel, and subway glass. From shiny to textured, natural to bright colors, metal to glass, you’re sure to find something that speaks to your inner interior decorator.
If you’re not sure what you like, you can look through photos of previously remodeled kitchens or talk to an interior design expert. We partner with local tile manufacturers and retailers including Sunderlands, Central States Tile, Tile Shop and Tile Warehouse. These companies also have designers on hand to help you make a decision. Many times, a stunning backsplash created with tile will become the focal point of the entire kitchen – the piece de resistance.
Tile can change the feel of the room. Tumbled travertine can lend a rustic, romantic feel. Colored glass can create a happy, playful atmosphere, stainless steel will feel clean and modern. Subway tiles will lend a timeless feel. From retro to contemporary to futuristic, there will be no problems with lack of choices. But don’t worry. If you get overwhelmed, Mike can help you narrow it down to what will work best in your kitchen.
