Refresh Your Kitchen on a Budget
One recommendation for adding value to your house is a kitchen upgrade. Kitchens can be one of the most expensive rooms in your house but you can achieve great results with little time or money – if you know how to use it!
If you want to refresh your kitchen but can’t afford a full-scale remodel, a smart place to start is with tiling a backsplash, which only takes a weekend and can cost as little as $10 per square meter. You can switch out a backsplash without moving cabinetry or appliances, and the sky’s the limit in terms of material choices, colours, and patterns.
The right backsplash tile can introduce another design dimension to your kitchen. Slender glass tiles in creamy and coppery shades will make your kitchen glow with their translucent beauty. A neutral colour palette can warm up a sleek, contemporary space.
Classic Subway Tiles
In an almost all white kitchen, subway tiles with dark grout lines bear a subtle “look-at-me” texture. The dark grout lines also serve a practical purpose: Grout can often stain, but dark grout is more forgiving.
Ordinary Made Special
It’s possible to take plain tiles and make them special, such as this backsplash dressed in classic white ceramic subway tiles. For a sophisticated twist, install subway tiles in a herringbone pattern.
Slate-look tiles made from rich brown and red tones are a perfect pair for warm wood floors and cabinets.
Colourful Kitchen Backsplash
Let a backsplash set the colour palette for your kitchen. An antique looking blue-and-beige tile backsplash in a Moroccan inspired pattern with create a comfortable and homely kitchen. Pair this with cream-colour cabinets and cupboards to allow the backsplash to make a statement.
