How To Decide What To Use For Your DuPage County Kitchen Backsplash

Are you going to be redoing your kitchen this year?

Is your DuPage County kitchen stuck in the 1960s and it needs a change? Many kitchens designed in the past 5 decades were furnished with old fashioned kitchen linoleum flooring or ceramic tile flooring and poorly finished hardwood floor. It was not common in most parts of the country to use cofriendly flooring like bamboo flooring, sustainable wood floor covering, click lock linoleum floor covering, or cork floor covering.

What sort of countertop is in place in your DuPage County residence?

Are you working with a linoleum or paperstone countertop or something so weird it is actually unidentifiable?

What are we working with for kitchen cabinets?

Do you have dark stained wood cabinets, white painted cabinets or IKEA cabinets? Some of these cabinets were built in DuPage County with reusable materials which can be sanded and painted, some work well with materials which may be in place including wood flooring and linoleum floor covering. 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 go and then it is time to design the kitchen backsplash.

Sometimes you will have an existing DuPage County 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.
