Choosing the best kitchen backsplash ideas for you can be difficult. There are a few tips that can get you through the process, though. Firstly, before choosing any material or color, grab a sample. Most places will let you take a sample home with you if not for free, for almost nothing. Tape that sample to the wall where you will be tiling and check it throughout the day. You’ll notice it will look different as the sun rises and falls and will be able to make a well-informed decision. Here in Orange County, you’ll want to know how the natural light makes it look because there’s plenty of it.

There is usually plenty of space that will be considered backsplash zones. The two most important areas include behind the sink and the range. For these areas, decide if you want to use different colors, patterns, materials or all of the above for those two spaces. Some people use this space for a piece of art made from the materials they use in the rest of the backsplash.

Budgets are always important when it comes to buying a home, selling a house, or remodeling any aspect of that home. When it comes to aesthetics like the kitchen backsplash, you will want to spend wisely. Materials and colors can get costly, but there’s nothing wrong with the classic white tile that’s the cheapest. Where you will not want to skimp is on the grout. The grout will adhere the tile to the wall and will go through plenty of torture from steam to water and more. Be sure to buy the best grout available and then budget in the tiles.

Finally, when you’re ordering tile, if you’re doing it without the help of a contractor you will need to know a few key terms. Firstly, you’ll not want to leave the “trim” behind. Trim pieces are the pieces of tile that will either be cut in half, thirds or whatever size you need to fill the borders. Secondly, you’ll need to know the difference between primary tile and decorative; primary is thicker tile. Lastly, make sure they have enough tile in stock and know how much you will need. Always order a little extra in case of broken pieces or mistakes. Just know that some tile makers make on an on-demand basis and may not have the tile you need readily available.
