Adding a Backsplash to Your Bathroom: Will add interest and value to your home

Adding a Backsplash to Your Bathroom: Will add interest and value to your home

A backsplash in your Bathroom is not necessary for your home. For the homeowner who is looking to enhance the value of your home, a backsplash is a great place to start. Let’s take a look to see what you need to know before beginning the backsplash project in your Bathroom.

 

What Does a Backsplash Do for Your Bathroom?

The purpose of a bathroom backsplash is to protect your walls against moisture. This moisture comes from water bathroom faucets and the tub. The standard height of a bathroom sink backsplash is about 4 inches from the counter up, but many can be much taller.

The reason for having a tall, decorative backsplash in the Bathroom is that it offers an exciting way to add color and texture to what could otherwise be a rather dull room.

4 Ideas to Getting You Started with Best Practices of Adding a Backsplash to Your Bathroom

  1. Be Bold but Stay on Theme: Give your bathroom character with a backsplash, but stay within your home design theme.
  2. Be Creative: Remember that this is the space for you to add personality to your Bathroom, don’t waste it.
  3. Have Kids? They use any bathroom regularly and protection from water fights is needed. Tiling the walls up to 4 feet from the ground and all around the Bathroom will help.
  4. Less Used Bathrooms: If it’s a powder bath, a guest’s bath, or a master bath, you will not have to worry as much about splash. Think about tiling the wall from counter to the ceiling to add more interest.

9 Typical Tile Material Choices for Your Bathroom

  1. Ceramic Tile is used because it is inexpensive, flexible, and easy to customize to the hue and style of your dreams.
  2. Mosaic Tile is popular recently because the unusual materials such as limestone tile are giving it a new look.
  3. Subway Tile is standard in bathrooms for backsplashes or for the entire wall.
  4. Glass Tile is low maintenance and water-resistant with a lovely luminous quality.
  5. Travertine Tile, which is a type of limestone, is a durable and classic choice for a bathroom.
  6. Carrera Marble Tile is an affordable marble, but be aware that it will need annual sealing that can stain if you neglect to wipe up spills promptly.
  7. Tumbled Stone Tile is made of marble, limestone, quartzite, or travertine tumbled to give an earthy appearance.
  8. Onyx Tile has an intriguing translucent quality that comes in a wide variety of colors besides black.

Consider These 4 Interesting Backsplash Layouts

  1. Unusual Sizes, Layouts, and Shapes: Oversized tiles, offset and basketweave designs, fish-scales, and octagonal shapes are some of the most trending backsplash ideas for 2019.
  2. Accents: Contrasting tiles scattered among your tiles are a fantastic way to show off a few unique tiles. A tile mural can turn your backsplash area into a piece of art.
  3. Mimic a Chair Rail: Running a line of Tile around the entire Bathroom at the backsplash height to mimic your dining room’s chair rail.
  4. Backsplash that Just Keeps Going: Extend your backsplash tile up to, and around, the bathroom mirror to create a gorgeous frame or full floor to ceiling backsplashes. Make sure to build a plan and execute that plan, and in the end, you will have the Bathroom of your dreams.
