Last week we talked about flooring, and this week we’re turning our attention to two other kitchen surfaces: the countertops and the backsplash. The process can vary and is sometimes confusing to homeowners. For example, you won’t always order your backsplash and your countertop from the same vendor, so delivery and installation times must be coordinated. Also, some places do the installation while others don’t—it’s a good question to ask up front when you start shopping for materials.
Tips for Picking Your Backsplash
Many of the same rules apply to choosing your countertop: consider it against your backsplash options, know the measurements you need to order, and choose colors/patterns wisely for maximum visual impact. Popular options for countertops include stone, engineered stone, granite, wood, glass, and concrete. Other less common choices include stainless steel, copper, and even zinc. Work with a kitchen designer to choose the right material to suit your kitchen workspace and your personal aesthetic.
