When it comes to decorating your home, the kitchen can seem to be one of the most challenging rooms to decorate. A kitchen backsplash is not only a creative way to express your personal style, but it’s also one of the most effective ways to refresh your kitchen. Backsplashes no longer function as just the way to protect walls from spills and splatters. The kitchen backsplash is now the focal point of today’s kitchen and with a wide array of eye catching materials, such as metals, glass, brick and even wood, the ideas are endless!

Cost

Unfortunately, many homeowners are surprised to learn just how labor-intensive it can be to install a tile backsplash.  Although the area is small, it can take up to 2 to 3 days to do an average backsplash. The largest cost is the labor, which can anywhere range from $650 to $1800. A very simple backsplash will definitely be on the lower range for labor. Prices will also vary depending on the pattern of the backsplash, as well as different types of material.

Materials

There are limitless materials that you can choose from for your backsplash: natural stone, porcelain, ceramic, glass mosaics, brick and even wood. Prices could vary anywhere from $500 to $1500, possibly more, depending on the material you choose.  However, you also want to factor in for additional materials, such as adhesives, sealants, grout, etc.  

Ideas

The options are infinite when it comes to designs and materials for your kitchen backsplash. Remember, be bold and creative and you will create a wonderful masterpiece of art in your kitchen for everyone to talk about!
