Adding Value to Your Kitchen
One of the top recommendations for adding value to your house is a kitchen upgrade, but you don't have to spend a lot of time or money on it. If you want to refresh your kitchen but can't afford a full-scale remodel, a smart place to start is with tiling a backsplash, which only takes a weekend and can cost as little as $5 per square foot.
Switching Out a Backsplash Can Be Simple, & Easy
You can switch out a backsplash without moving cabinetry or appliances, and the sky's the limit in terms of material choices, colors, and patterns. If your kitchen currently only has bare walls, you'll also delight in the easy clean-up a smart backsplash provides. We've put together 10 design and installation tips for installing a backsplash, along with 10 glass and ceramic tile choices.
Its The Little Things!
Enter any attractive, well-designed kitchen and your attention, not surprisingly will likely be drawn to the finely crafted wood cabinetry or gleaming appliances. You’ll probably not even notice the kitchen’s backsplash area, that innocuous sliver of wall running between the countertop and upper wall cabinets.
