Ask about wear and tear. How easily can you clean the tile, and what is the best way to seal it? Ceramic tile doesn't need this extra step, but natural tile does if you want to maintain its appearance. "If the tile is stainless steel, find out if abrasives will scratch it, and I would suggest getting a grout additive and sealing the grout itself so it stays fresh and clean for longer," Van Deusen says.
When you've determined the style you want and purchased the material, it's time to install your new kitchen backsplash. One of the benefits of a small kitchen is that the surface area you'll need to cover with your backsplash is likely not that large—so a self-install may be possible, particularly if you're handy and/or working with self-adhesive backsplash materials that don't require extensive cutting and configuring. If you're not thrilled by the idea of installing your own backsplash or if you lack home improvement chops, a professional installation may be in order. It'll be more expensive than a self-install by a large margin, but you'll be freeing up your time and giving yourself the knowledge that an expert is in charge of the installation.
There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course, every homeowner's definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you, there are several ways to approach the design, from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.
