How To Decide What To Use For Your Arlington Heights Kitchen Backsplash

Are you going to be remodeling your kitchen this year?

Is your Arlington Heights kitchen stuck in the past and it needs a change? Many kitchens designed in the past 5 decades were outfitted with old fashioned kitchen linoleum flooring or ceramic tile floor covering and poorly stained hardwood flooring. It was not normal in most parts of the country to use environmentally friendly flooring like bamboo flooring, sustainable wood floor covering, click lock linoleum floor covering, or cork flooring.

What sort of countertop is in place in your Arlington Heights residence?

Are you working with a linoleum or formica countertop or something so funky it is actually unidentifiable?

What are we working with for kitchen cabinets?

Do you have dark stained wood cabinets, slab door cabinets or IKEA cabinets? Some of these cabinets were built in Arlington Heights with reusable materials which can be sanded and painted, some work well with materials which may be in place including bamboo floor covering and slate flooring. If this is the case, you may decide to not refinish them.

 

Decide what is in place, decide what needs to stay and what needs to be remodeled and then it is time to design the kitchen backsplash.

On occasion you will have an existing Arlington Heights kitchen backsplash which needs to be eliminated prior to installing your new backsplash. Consider the work that is involved in doing that when you plan your backsplash installation project.

 

Metal tiles are a great option for a new kitchen backsplash.
