Will A Backsplash Add Value To My Home?

Will A Backsplash Add Value To My Home?

One of the ways that you can add a little extra value to your home is by adding a tiled backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom. This is a more up-to-date touch that is also very functional. It gives you a lot of options and will attract a potential buyer’s eye.

Functional

A backsplash is a great way to keep things clean in your kitchen and even in your bathroom. Think of how easy it is to wipe splatter off of tile instead of scrubbing it off of wallpaper or paint. Tile does not stain from grease or sauce splatter, and also looks beautiful while doing it. It’s a win, win situation for some of the messiest areas of your house.

One Of A Kind

Custom tile work is always a one of a kind work of art. You won’t be held to just the prints that can be found at the home improvement store, but rather you can let your imagination go wild with mixing tiles and patterns together to create your own unique look. Make it stand out or make it blend in with your decor choices. Pick all one color, or combine as many colors as you want. The possibilities are really endless.

Pretty To Look At

A tiled backsplash is really pretty to look at. It draws your attention to a focal point in the kitchen, allowing you to focus your decor choices. Pick a color scheme that is going to go with the other items in your kitchen and build it from there. Add a light color to brighten up a dark area under cabinets, or add dark tile underneath a window to keep things looking clean and fresh.

Tips For Picking A Backsplash

● Use dark grout whenever possible. It doesn’t show dirt and wear like white grout, making things look cleaner and new for longer.
● Create a focal point. Think about starting your design above the stove and working your way out. You want to think about where someone’s eye will be drawn when they first step foot in the kitchen.
● Change how you place the tile. Instead of always going horizontally, think about going vertical for a more modern look, or even diagonal to create a cool pattern.
● If you are adding a backsplash in the hopes that you will resell the house, don’t go for too bold in the color. A light and more neutral color scheme will let people see more of themselves in the decor and less of your bold choices.
