April 18, 2008

If you are like most people, your kitchen is more than just the place you make and eat your meals. It's more like the center of the house and the place where everyone comes together to socialize and hang out in good times and bad.  With that in mind, when you decide to design your kitchen, you want to make it truly your own pace.  Both the kitchen flooring and backsplashes are pretty important in creating the look you want.  However, when you prepare to change your kitchen, it's important to make sure your flooring and backsplashes match.  Many homeowners make the mistake of trying to match to the appliances and then figure out that appliances are changed too frequently for that.  Now, you have to think about the types of materials you want to use.

Kitchen Flooring and Backsplashes

Let's talk about the kitchen flooring first.  There are tons of material and style, not to mention color options to pick from.  You can decide to use tile, hard wood, laminate, or even a covered concrete floor.  Concrete is pretty neat because you have it stamped and all kinds of other decorative embellishments, but it is very heavy.  Natural stone is another choice for your floor and kitchen backsplashes.  Once you have an idea of the style and kind of floor you want, it's time to explore the world of backsplash materials.

As with the kitchen flooring aspects, backsplashes can be done in all kinds of interesting and creative ways.  Many people like to use granite or marble as backsplashes because they are beautiful and durable.  Metal is another unique looking option.  Textured glass tiles are making a huge impression among kitchen remodelers as well.  Regardless of the type of backsplash you choose, make sure it works well with the flooring for the most cohesive and well designed look.
