Remodeling a kitchen can be overwhelming and there are many options to upgrade, but one area that might be easily over looked is backsplashes.

When deciding what to do with this space that many don’t think about, or settle for the easiest solution, careful thought is worth your time. This area can be the home of a wonderful backsplash that will attract the eye with both marvelous color and texture. In a small kitchen this color can add an outstanding accent color without taking up too much wall space.
