How to Pick the Right Mosaic for Your Kitchen Backsplash

If you're ready to update your existing kitchen or starting from scratch, consider using backsplash mosaic tiles.

Mosaic tiles have been around for ages and can be seen making a statement in entryways and bathrooms, and they are now used as backsplash.

For those new to interior design who may need to learn what a backsplash is, the panel above your counters and behind your sink or stove protects the wall from splashes.

Now, back to designing; when it comes to how much mosaic tile you are going to need, you will need to know how much surface area you are looking to cover. You can cover up the space between the counter and the cabinet or take the tile from the counters to the ceiling.

Once you decide where the backsplash will start and stop, you simply need to mark off the area and measure the square footage to determine the amount of tile you need to buy. If the thought of that scares you, don't worry. Send us a message on our Facebook page, and we will be more than happy to help you determine how much tile you are going to need.

At this point in the design process, you are ready to make a strong decision on what type of mosaic design you will choose. The good thing about mosaics is that not only are the designs great, but the materials used to make them are great, too. You have a great lineup of choices for both style and durability. We have a large selection of glass, porcelain, and marble mosaics suitable for any backsplash design. They are also mesh-backed for easy installation!

A backsplash is a great way to make a statement. Take the right steps to make sure that you are making the best decision possible. Know the space you are working on, mark off the area and choose a design from all the best possible choices we have.
