A backsplash is used to cover the space behind a bathroom sink, kitchen sink, or a stove. It serves the functional purpose of protecting a wall from being splashed by water, oil, or food, and is also a great way to add some more design interest to your home. Tile is a popular material used for backsplashes in the greater Cedar Park, Georgetown, Leander TX areas because it is durable and affordable. Ceramic tile is available in hundreds of different textures, colors, styles, and sizes. Read below for more information on why you should install a tile backsplash in your Cedar Park home!
Benefits of a Tile Backsplash
With so many different tile material and design options available, homeowners can truly customize the look of their kitchen or bathroom. While more expensive, stone tiles such as travertine, marble, or granite add an interesting look and are very durable. Ceramic tile is on the cheaper side, is easy to install, and is available in many different looks. When creating a backsplash you could use a simple white subway tile throughout the entire room, or go with a textured option that creates a unique design.
Tile is a low maintenance backsplash option (compared to materials such as glass, copper, or tin) because it is easy to clean and repair. Just wipe off tiles with a damp cloth. If a tile chips or cracks, the one tile can be replaced very easily.
Drawbacks of a Tile Backsplash
Tile backsplashes do need to be cleaned regularly to prevent mold or mildew from growing between the grout lines. The experts at Floor Coverings International Williamson County will install the tiles close together to limit the amount of exposed grout to help prevent this.
