Getting the perfect finished look in your kitchen has a lot to do with where to start and stop your backsplash. With windows, walls, and doors it can be a difficult decision to know where the best places are, especially when you are using a beautiful material that would look great on any wall. The following tips will help you decided the best starting and stopping points.
Tips for Backsplashes
- Tile the main walls of the kitchen, anywhere you have cabinets.
- When a wall goes beyond the cabinets, end the backsplash where the upper and lower cabinets end. This will give a nice clean line.
- Consider the size of the kitchen. In small kitchens, it may be best to cover the entire wall instead of stopping at the cabinets. In larger kitchens to cover the entire wall would be very costly and unnecessary.
- Cover the entire wall behind the range hood.
- If a window cuts into the wall, pretend the window is not there and continue the backsplash around it to the normal stopping point. Stopping at window may make your kitchen look off balance.
