Our kitchens are the most used rooms of our homes. They provide us with a central place to meet, discuss our days, and prepare meals. With so much use, our kitchens take a beating. That’s why they’re constructed from tough materials like wood, granite, laminate, and tile. Tile in particular holds up extremely well, even after years of use, and that’s why many kitchens utilize tile as a backsplash for their countertops.
There are lots of reasons to consider a tile backsplash for your kitchen remodel. For one thing, tile backsplashes are beautiful! They offer a wide variety of colors and finishes that will complement other components of your kitchen — like cabinets and countertops. But tile offers advantages beyond its visual appearance. In this guide, we’ll discuss the advantages of a tile backsplash to give you an idea of why you should consider adding one to your kitchen.
Let’s get started!
Tile is durable
Kitchens are prone to messes. Whether it’s a baking disaster while your kids are making cupcakes or a pot boiling over on the stovetop, kitchens have to survive a lot of wear and tear. We’ve all experienced sink splashes and cooking splatters. They’re just a fact of life. But have no fear! A beautiful tile backsplash will protect and seal your walls from moisture and stains. It will make handling everyday spills and splatters a breeze. Just wash off the mess with a clean cloth, and you can get back to the stuff you love — like baking cookies!
A tile backsplash will personalize your space
Tile comes in many colors, shapes, sizes, and styles. That gives you lots of design options and creative freedom when planning your kitchen. Installing tile creates an eye-catching backsplash and makes your kitchen truly your own. At S&K Remodeling, we can show you options that are both beautiful and affordable. So express your style… with tile!
Tile increases your home’s value
Tile is considered a premium finish, and a tile backsplash will elevate your kitchen to the next level. It will enhance your kitchen’s overall look, and will increase your kitchen’s value. A more valuable kitchen means a more valuable home. Correct us if we’re wrong, but we don’t see a downside here!
Tile is environmentally conscious
In this day and age, people are increasingly concerned about their impact on the environment. If you want to keep your impact to a minimum, tile is a perfect material to use for your kitchen backsplash. The basic ingredients in tile are easy to mine and manufacture. That reduces energy use during the manufacturing process and means a lower carbon footprint.
