Types Of Backsplash

Types Of Backsplash

Kitchen backsplashes were traditionally made of tile. They covered just the portion of kitchen walls between the countertops and upper cabinets. However, as kitchen design and cabinetry preferences have evolved backsplash and tile designs have changed too.

Most designers are using glass, aluminium, ceramic tile and other glossy and beautiful materials being used as a backsplash.

Peel and Stick

With peel and stick backsplash tiles, you get the best of both worlds when it comes to ease and quality.

To install, simply peel off the backing and stick the tile to the wall

Porcelain, Ceramic Or Marble

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are durable, water-resistant, and some of the most reliable options on the market. Additionally more affordable than Marble.

These days, you can find ceramic and porcelain mosaic tiles in endless shapes, colours, and sizes. They can look like anything, and that means they can always keep up with the latest styles.

Marble is worth the price for that iconic stone backsplash. With beautiful swirling patterns, marble offers a one-of-a-kind appearance and the certainty that no other backsplash in the world looks exactly like yours.

Glass

A glass backsplash is a smart and modern way of updating an old, tired kitchen.  It’s easy to keep clean, low maintenance, and it’s heat resistant too, which is a safe option to use in a kitchen.  When choosing a glass backsplash, there are lots of options including multiple colours, sparkle, and patterns.

Aluminium Backsplash

Perfect for a minimalist kitchen or for an instant update to something sleek and stylish. An aluminium backsplash is an excellent way of modernising your space and creating a focal area of interest. It is one of the easiest types of backsplashes to install, it is water and steam resistant, as well as anti-bacterial and fire-resistant.

Acrylic Backsplash

An acrylic backsplash emulates the look of real glass. While it is less expensive than the other options mentioned above, it can look “cheap” especially compared to glass or aluminium backsplashes.  The problem with acrylic is that although it is generally hard-wearing, it is easily scratched, and those scratches are often visible, and they are not fire-resistant.
