BLUE TILE BACKSPLASHES: A TRENDY CHOICE WITH BENEFITS
The mood of any room can be completely changed by a colored tile backsplash. Using a blue tile, for instance, immediately opens up a world of design possibilities. Backsplashes made from materials like porcelain or glass serve multiple purposes; one of the most important being protection. Blue boasts a broad range of meanings, from the sky to the ocean. It is a color often seen as representative of open spaces, freedom, intuition, and imagination. Those who are inspired by blue typically feel expansiveness, inspiration, and relaxation. So, if this sounds like you, a blue tile is a perfect choice! Read more about blue mosaic tile on our blog.
How complicated is updating a kitchen backsplash?
We’re happy to say it’s much easier than you may think! In fact, many of our customers take on the project themselves. Usually, kitchen backsplashes fill a smaller area and don’t require heavy-duty construction. That said, we always recommend you speak with a professional to ensure there isn’t a specific concern that may require additional tools and know-how.
Can I use pool tile for my kitchen backsplash?
YES! That’s the wonderful thing about pool-rated tile; it’s not only stunning but it’s held to higher production standards making it even more durable than regular interior tile. You can use mosaic pool tile anywhere in your home, but interior tile should never be installed outdoors.
Is It hard to care for a tile backsplash?
Absolutely not! In fact, using a tile backsplash offers minimal upkeep. Tile is non-porous and won’t stain or grow nasty germs and mold. Simply wipe it down with a sponge and your normal household detergents and you’ll have your backsplash looking good as new!
What about grout? Won’t that get dirty easily?
Traditional cement grout is porous and does run the risk of growing mold and germs if not properly cleaned regularly. However, we highly recommend avoiding this risk altogether by using an epoxy-based grout like those in the Starlike Evo collection. There are hundreds of colors and additive options so you can complement your tile and add the perfect finishing touch!
