As a general rule of thumb, the backsplash in a kitchen is going to be located in the space between the counters and the cabinets. Typically, this is just a couple of feet, if that. So, while the backsplash is still an important visual element, it doesn’t occupy much of the wall when all is said and done. If you’d like to add more backsplash to the kitchen when working with Charleston tile installers, consider customizing the design of the kitchen to make that possible.
Subtract – or Shrink – a Cabinet?
The general thinking goes that you want to pack as many cabinets into a kitchen as the space will allow. This maximizes storage capacity, of course, but it can take away from the design possibilities in the space. If you think you already have more than enough cabinet space in your design, think about taking away one of the cabinets, or making it smaller, so you can have more room for the backsplash. Team with Charleston tile installers who offer design services, so you can get help with the layout of your space. Making big design choices on your own can be intimidating, but it’s far more approachable when you have some assistance.
Strategic Stove Selection
Typically, there will be space behind the stove for the backsplash to run along the wall. However, with some stoves, the back of the appliance sticks up above the cooktop to present controls and a display to the user. If you buy that type of stove, you’ll essentially be losing backsplash space that could be used to make your backsplash more of a focal point. If you are going to have professional Charleston tile installers anyway to do this job, you might as well pick a range that has the controls on the front, so you can enjoy as much backsplash area as possible.
