Kitchen backsplash tiles are just plain beautiful! Tiles bring brightness to a kitchen. Of course, paint can do that too, but there’s something about the gleam of a polished tile that paint just can’t match.
Tiles reflect light. Many kitchens don’t have enough natural light. Besides that, most kitchens are used frequently at night. Most dual-career families aren’t home in the day on weekdays, so their kitchens truly need to have good light. It’s certainly possible to create a well-lit workspace with spotlights and under-the-counter lights. That won’t make a welcoming room, though — and after spending the day at work, people want to cook dinner in a welcoming space! Tiles make a kitchen welcoming.
To get a really sensible treatment for kitchen walls, use kitchen backsplash tiles! Kitchen surfaces take a beating, especially walls over the sink and the stove. They get bumped by small appliances. They get covered with bits of food. Kitchen walls have to be tough! Kitchen backsplash tiles come in the most durable materials available metal, ceramic, clay, glass, and even cork and rubber! All of these materials hold up to harsh treatment better than simple drywall or wallpaper.
Kitchen walls have to be easy to wash, because a kitchen is the most heavily used room in any house. Kitchen backsplash tiles have surfaces that are created for cleaning! Their slick, tough surfaces hold up to daily scrubbing without showing signs of wear.
