We recently received this question from one of our readers:
I have golden oak cabinets and almond counter tops, what type and color of back splash would you recommend to give my kitchen a more updated look?
There are a few things to consider when planning a backsplash so start with asking yourself these questions:
1. Do you want the tile to blend or contrast with the other items in the kitchen?
2. How much room do you have? If you plan to keep an existing backsplash that’s part of the countertop, this limits the amount of space you have to work with.
3. Do you want the backsplash to be practical or a design element in your kitchen?
4. What colors do you want to add or pull out from your existing decor? Do you want to add a warm or cool color palette?
After you’ve answered these questions, consider glass tiles or large format tiles to give you an updated look.
If you still aren’t sure and need a visual, check out our virtual room designer. You can try on different looks here, to get an idea if you like large or small tiles, contrasting colors or tiles that blend.
Please let us know if you have any other questions!
