You’ve Decided on a Countertop – Don’t Forget the Backsplash

Countertop Backsplash

You’ve made the right decision on your Colorado Springs home remodeling project and chose a granite countertop. That’s great news, but it’s only part of the equation when it comes to a kitchen remodel. What about the backsplash? This is a key component when it comes to kitchen countertops because it can make a big visual impact on your entire remodel. There are a lot of options to consider when it comes to the backsplash.

Backsplash Scope

How much backsplash do you want? Do you want the backsplash to cover a portion of your kitchen walls above the granite countertop? Some people want only a partial backsplash to cover a few inches above the countertop. Others choose to do the entire wall, up to the cabinets, to make a bold statement. Once you determine how much backsplash you will need, you can figure out the square footage for materials (we can help with this).

Type of Backsplash

You have a lot of options in this category:

  • Mosaics
  • Traditional ceramic tile
  • Stainless steel
  • Glass
  • Stone, including granite, quartz, onyx, marble or soapstone

You’ll find a range of pricing options within those categories as well. Ceramic tile is one of the most common and cost-effective options. Granite and some other options will make the materials pricier but more durable and elegant. It’s all about determining what color scheme you want to go with your Colorado Springs granite countertop. Do you want a backsplash that matches the countertop and blends in, or would you prefer a style that creates more color contrast in the room?
