Choosing a Backsplash for Your Granite Countertops

Choosing a Backsplash for Your Granite Countertops

Now that you have installed granite countertops in your kitchen, it is time to start thinking about some backsplash ideas to accent your countertops.

1.   It is important to pair the right backsplash with your granite countertops, which means choosing the right material, color, texture, and pattern. Your granite countertops add an expensive and luxurious look to your kitchen and you want to make sure you keep that look throughout your kitchen by choosing the right backsplash.

2.   You want to make sure that you choose the right amount of backsplash to add and not over do it. This means that you will have to decide if you want to only cover a portion of the kitchen wall above your granite countertops or the entire wall. Once you have decided how much backsplash you want to add, you will then have to measure and calculate the square footage to be covered, in order to determine how much backsplash will be needed.

3.   Once you have the amount of backsplash you will need, you will now need to decide on what type of material you want to install. There are many options to choose from, such as glass, ceramic tile, and stainless steel, to name a few. You can also choose another color of granite as your backsplash to accent your granite countertops, if you want to continue with granite throughout your kitchen.

4.   After you have chosen the material you want, you will then have to choose a color, as well as a texture.

5.   The costs of adding a backsplash to your kitchen will all depend on the material, color, texture, and size you choose. Because there are so many options to choose from it is hard to pin point an exact price, however ceramic tile is the most available type of material for a backsplash and is the cheapest choice.

6.   Once you have chosen your material, color, etc., it is now time to install the backsplash, which if you are one who enjoys DIY projects, this part should be easy for you, however if you have never installed backsplash or tile before you may want to consider hiring a professional.
