Look anywhere these days and you’ll find kitchen backsplash ideas and trends. A backsplash is part of almost every one of our kitchen remodeling projects in Naperville and will continue to be for years to come. Why not take the opportunity to add your own personal touch to your space?
The backsplash was originally intended to protect the kitchen and bathroom walls, behind sinks and counters from water splashes and food debris. They were easier to clean than painted walls and wallpaper. Soon, though, they became as much about décor as function. Backsplashes were a chance to add a little something different to your kitchen or bath. Originally, backsplash options were limited to 4×4 ceramic tiles and not much else. Today, you’ll find more backsplash options than you’ll know what to do with – there are definitely options to fit any theme or style.
Naperville homeowners are experimenting with many of the latest options in kitchen backsplashes. The variety of backsplash options works well in a town like Naperville. Here, styles range from large, historic homes dating to the 1800’s to small cottage and ranch style homes of the 50’s and ’60s, to mass-produced subdivisions of the 1980’s and 1990’s to the sleek and modern designs we saw in the 2000’s. And there is a backsplash to complement every one of those styles, whether you want to remain true to the original character of the home or try something new.
Some of the most popular backsplash ideas today include:
There are no hard and fast rules about adding a backsplash to kitchen remodeling in Naperville. They can be found in any size. While most are large enough to contain cooking splatters or line up perfectly with the length of the countertops, there’s no set rule that says the backsplash must be that big. Or even in that location. Some run the entire length of the kitchen, pulling it together. Others may form an entire wall to serve as a dramatic focal point. Still others may frame a favorite piece of furniture, a specialty sink, or gourmet stove. Your backsplash is limited only by your imagination.
