Remember trim pieces. If you choose a beveled tile, you’ll need a corner round trim piece (rather than a bullnose). Ask which trim and decorative moldings come with the tile—these pieces should all coordinate in glaze and thickness, and if you order them in separate batches, there could be discrepancies.
That said, why is this important decorative feature often the last detail planned in a kitchen design? Probably because there are so many choices. To make the process easier, we asked designers to provide some guidelines for choosing tile backsplash. Consider these points before you make your selection:
Include toekick lights. Installing lights underneath base cabinets to illuminate the floor beneath adds ambiance and serves as a functional night light. “It allows you to walk in the kitchen after dark and see the floors without stumbling,” Dross says.
Ask if the tile you want is in stock. ”The economy has changed things in the tile industry, and when times were booming, companies were willing to stock more,” Khan says. ”Now, with inventory turning less, there are lead times out there.”
There’s no such thing as a catch-all light fixture that does it all: illuminates under cabinets, provides light over the island and gives cabinets a glow. Some fixtures will multi-task their lighting duties, but in order to choose wisely, the first step is to understand the four layers of light.
Khan says flexibility is important if you’re working on a budget—you might not get the exact tile size or color or texture. Where are you willing to compromise? Choose based on priority.
