Many people are using tumbled materials when making their decision from the endless amount of kitchen tile backsplash ideas. While you may have ruled out glass, steel and ceramic, you still have some big choices to make. The most popular types of tumbled tiles are made from travertine, limestone and marble but ultimately the decision has to be yours. What works for other people may not look the way you want it to in your kitchen.
Take a kitchen, for example. Obviously, you‘re going to think an awful lot about your cabinetry and countertops. But, there‘s another thing to include that‘s definitely going to establish the feel for the space that you‘re looking to create: the backsplash. It‘s a small thing, but the importance of a backsplash in your kitchen‘s design is of paramount importance!
Countertop: Even though there are many other countertop choices besides traditional, many homeowners still admire the timeless beauty of countertops. Tile for countertops is made from ceramic, porcelain or granite. The biggest problem of tile for countertops is keeping the grout clean and sanitary. It is imperative to properly seal grout. Using larger tiles means less area of grout and therefore less cleaning and sealing. Colored grout is also a popular idea instead of using white grout, which shows stains and discoloration.
