How To Decide What To Use For Your Riverdale Kitchen Backsplash

Are you going to be remodeling your kitchen in the near future?

Is your Riverdale kitchen stuck in the 1970s and it needs a facelift? Many kitchens designed in the past 5 decades were furnished with old fashioned kitchen linoleum floor covering or ceramic tile flooring and poorly finished hardwood flooring. It was not customary in most parts of the country to use green flooring like bamboo flooring, sustainable wood flooring, click lock linoleum floor covering, or cork flooring.

What sort of countertop is installed in your Riverdale residence?

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

What are we working with for kitchen cabinets?

Do you have metal cabinets, white painted cabinets or IKEA cabinets? Some of these cabinets were built in Riverdale 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.

 

Inventory 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 Riverdale kitchen backsplash which needs to be demolished 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.
