If a kitchen renovation is in your future, you’ve probably already done a lot of research and have come across a lot of different choices when it comes to the various features you’ll be changing. One area that’s definitely worth paying attention to is your kitchen’s backsplash.
Because the backsplash is a focal point that can really add a pop to your kitchen design. We love the look of subway tile in the kitchen. In fact, we’ve incorporated subway tile in numerous kitchen projects.
But the average consumer may not know about all the specific materials out there that can all bring a beautiful kitchen backsplash to life. So, let’s focus on one: ceramic tile.
Ceramic tile is simply clay that’s been hardened in a piping hot kiln. After the outer portion of the tile is glazed, the manufacturer can then add a specific color or pattern to blend in with your overall kitchen design. And because ceramic tile is easy to cut, installation is fairly easy.
Even though an endless choice of colors and patterns makes ceramic tile a common choice for the kitchen backsplash, it’s important to note that there is no one size to choose from. Many people visualize the size of a standard brick for subway tile, but they can be made larger, smaller or thinner depending on the look you’re going for.
Another way that you can customize the look of your ceramic subway tile is with grout. Gray has been a popular color recently, but you might be surprised that the color of the grout – and there are many to choose from – can greatly shift the finished look of your backsplash.
Finally, if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you might be relieved to know that ceramic tile is user-friendly.
What does that mean?
Because ceramic tile is finished with a glaze, this prevents it from staining. Any grease build-up can simply be wiped away. If easy clean up is important to you, a ceramic backsplash might be right up your alley!
