Kitchen backsplashes are becoming more and more popular in homes. Not only do they protect your kitchen walls from the messes created by cooking, they are also a fun way to add personality to your kitchen and show off your style.

According to HGTV, there are some steps you can follow to ensure that you get the perfect backsplash for your kitchen. One thing that is key when picking your backsplash is to take your countertops into account. You don’t want a backsplash that clashes with your countertop, but you also don’t want a backsplash that blends in with it completely either. That’s why it’s a good idea to buy some samples of backsplashes so you can compare them to your countertops and better visualize what would look great in your kitchen.

If you are on a budget, HGTV suggests choosing a more traditional and simple tile to save money. The more decorative and trendy tiles tend to cost more. However, one area that you don’t want to cut costs is on the grout. Be sure to buy a quality grout to ensure that your backsplash stays put for a long time.

One more thing that you want to consider when you are picking out a backsplash is its ability to be cleaned. Avoid picking out a tile or material that will easily show stains or that will be hard to scrub clean.
