Whether you have or haven’t had the displeasure of cooking without a backsplash, you probably know the importance of having a backsplash in your kitchen. What you may not be as aware of is how essential a backsplash is to a pulled together kitchen design. Whether you want to add some color to your kitchen or tie the design together, backsplashes are a great addition to any kitchen, new or old.

Backsplashes, like any other kitchen material, come in a wide variety of materials and suit different kitchen designs. One of the most popular and durable backsplash materials is ceramic subway tiles. White subway tiles add decoration, while also providing enough toughness to withstand anything your cooking endeavors throw at them. When companied with white cabinets and marble or white quartz countertops, white subway tile can lend a beautifully monochromatic look to your kitchen.

Another popular backsplash material choice is to use tiled or solid marble, or other stones, to give your kitchen a natural or organically modern feel. Tiles can let you use your stone to play with patterns, whereas solid, wrapped backsplashes can give your kitchen visual continuity, making your space appear larger.

Unlike ceramic tile or stone, glass tiles play well with light and can add more shine than ceramic or stone. Not to say glass tile is always shiny, as you can utilize glossy, matte, or etched glass tiles to suit your preference. To create visual variety, mix shiny glass tiles and glass tiles without shine. Glass tile perfectly accentuates steel appliances.

While tile backsplashes look great and compliment several styles of kitchens, metal, such as steel or bronze, can add texture and sheen and tie your metallic appliances and accessories back in. Metal kitchen backsplashes can also add a reflective quality to your kitchen, which can brighten up your space. While tiles are more versatile, metal kitchen backsplashes look phenomenal in industrial or modern kitchens, as do mirrored backsplashes.



Horizontal tiles are classic and lead your eye from left to right, but once you have seen a few backsplashes, you may feel like you have seen them all. However, mixing materials, creating patterns, or changing tile angles can differentiate your kitchen design from others. The interchange of materials combined with alternating angles can give your kitchen a truly one-of-a-kind look.

Alternating tiles, materials, or colors can cut down on cost, while also keeping your kitchen from appearing too one note. Also, placing tiles that are traditionally placed vertically or horizontally at a diagonal can create a modern, expensive look for less money than buying a marble backsplash or other costly material. Lastly, if you only have enough in your budget to splurge on a certain amount of expensive material, place that material above the stove, so it can stand as the focal point of your kitchen.

 They removed some hardy board siding that had been exposed to lots of water and was rotten...Took old out, replaced with new, primed, caulked and painted all in one morning. Schon Holman was magnificent. He knew what he was doing, came dressed suiting the quality of work I expected, did a thorough, perfect job, left site immaculate and was professional in his conversation and demeanor. Would definitely use Schon and BACK again. 
 Today concludes my home updating experience with Back Construction. It is with gratitude and satisfaction I review Shohn and my kitchen transformation. There were many just in time process changes that needed Shohns' expertise and patient consideration. He approached them through an experienced eye and one by one sought a solution , never an excuse. This is a testimony to.his professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks Back Construction for choosing top quality staff. Thank you Shohn for taking care of me like you would your family. 
 Back Construction helped turn my rental property from the ugliest house on the street to one of the best-looking by designing and building a super-custom open gable porch roof to replace an outdated awning. The project was complicated by the need to work with multiple residents and me, the owner, but clear communication from start to finish made the process easier. They were conscientious about my budget without cutting corners on the quality, appearance, or service. 
 I was very pleased with Schon Holman who repaired a faucet incorrectly installed and repaired cabinet damaged by water. Back was quickly responsive to my request and adjusted original estimate when work was done. I would highly recommend Back. 
 Highly recommend Back Construction! They screened in part of our deck and built a pergola. The project went smooth from beginning to end. The sales manager and project manager were easy to work with and took everything into consideration. The work crew were very professional, on time and cleaned up daily. Our screened in porch has become our favorite part of the house! We will definitely be using Back Construction again. 
 I couldn't speak more fondly on my experience with Back Construction. We had the columns on our front porch repaired and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship. Schon Holman and Tom Gebhart were very professional.The Home was built in the 1800s and with the original columns still standing, the team took extra care in the repair and their preservation. They also were able to lift the porch and level out the roof which seemed like quite a task. Im very happy with the outcome. They even gave advice and information on the products they used for future reference. Thank you very much Back Construction. I will be recommending your work to others.
