Backsplash tile, the name is self-explanatory, but while to some it denotes practicality, to others it means an opportunity to customize their kitchens. It all depends on how you look at it. What was originally intended to serve as a protective barrier between the wall and cooking splatter, counter spills, and splashed water has morphed into a way to impart a focal point to a kitchen. Installing tile is not only a way to break up the linear arrangement of cabinets, it's a stylish and efficient way to combat the moisture and mold problem endemic to kitchens and bathrooms. And for those on a budget, it's also an extremely simple step you can take to transform your kitchen or bathroom. Perhaps most practical of all, installing backsplash tile not only makes a style statement, it's a wise investment that adds lasting value to your home.
