Backsplash tile in PlanoWhen remodeling a kitchen, Plano homeowners have lots of practical details to consider. Will the countertops be easy to clean? Will the floors hold up to heavy foot traffic? Will there be enough cabinet space to hold everything?

So when it comes time to choose a backsplash, don’t be afraid to have some fun! Backsplash tile does serve a practical purpose (it helps to protect your wall from splatters and splashes), but it’s also a major decorative focal point. At Floor Coverings International Plano, you’ll find a wide selection of tile options for your backsplash.

Materials

Since your backsplash tile will be installed on a vertical surface, it doesn’t have to endure as much wear and tear as floor tile. This means you have a much wider selection of materials to choose from! You could go with luxurious natural stone, such as marble, granite, travertine, or slate. You could choose an affordable ceramic or porcelain, such as a classic subway tile. Or you could go for something flashy and reflective, like glass or stainless steel.

Shapes & Colors

Depending on what material you opt for, you’ll also be able to choose between different tile colors and shapes. Most homeowners are familiar with rectangular and square tiles, but don’t be afraid to consider more unique shapes such as hexagons, triangles, and diamonds.

Kitchen backsplash in Plano

If you are looking for a colorful backsplash, consider glass or glazed ceramic tile, which can be tinted to virtually any color in the rainbow. If you choose natural stone, you will be limited to the naturally occurring colors for that particular material.

Patterns

You can also customize your backsplash design by choosing a distinctive layout pattern. Brick and grid patterns are common because they work well with square and rectangular tiles. However, if you want something a bit more exciting, you could also try a herringbone or chevron pattern.

If you’re in need of a new backsplash, give us a call! We offer free in-home consultations so you can look at tile samples in your very own space. Floor Coverings International Plano proudly serves homeowners in Plano, Allen, Lucas, Parker.
