How To Choose The Right Backsplash in 5 Minutes
Are you wondering how to choose backsplashes for granite countertops?
Not all of us can afford to hire an interior designer to choose the right backsplash to go with your granite.
So how can you make the right choice if you don’t have the trained eye of an interior designer?
Take Samples Home
Most tile and granite stores will allow you to take backsplash samples home with you in order to find the right backsplash to match your countertop and kitchen cabinetry.
You will want to take a number of different types of samples home when you are trying to make a choice.
Then, simply hold the sample up to the wall and use your instinct in making a choice.
Through a process of elimination you will be able to choose the right backsplash.
It’s best to experiment with different colours and types of tile when you are shopping around for the right backsplash.
Since each piece of granite is so different and unique it may take a little experimentation to find the right one for you. Try to bring home samples that include:
- Mosaic patterns
- Subway styled tiles
- Glass tiles
- Metallic tiles
- Traditional ceramic tiles
The more types of backsplash you consider, the more confident you can feel about your final decision.
Remember to take a look at each sample under different types of light, during different times of the day.
A backsplash may look quite different in the morning light than it will in the evening.
