I’m hosting the holidays at my house. Do I have time to refresh my kitchen before then?
Absolutely. September is the time to look at the interior of our home in preparation for the holidays and upcoming winter months. A significant portion of home interior improvements will include new tile. Whether you plan to revitalize or add a new kitchen backs-plash, replace the mudroom/foyer tile, re-do the master or guest bedroom or powder room, or simply add that living room accent wall, it’s time to begin the process! Be sure to start far in advance in order to meet your target dates for completion.
What should I expect to spend on a kitchen tile backsplash?
That’s a tough one. It depends on what you are looking for really. The cost will vary with square footage and materials. The “average” backsplash is normally just 25-35 square feet. So for example, if you have a 25 s.f. backsplash and let’s say the cost of the tile is $10 per s.f. – (25 sf. x $10) = $250.00 plus grout, thinset & installation. The kitchen backsplash is an important aspect of the kitchen that has both a practical & decorative purpose. The practical is the obvious, to protect the wall and ease of cleaning. The decorative is to bring in texture, color, and interest to the area. It also “completes” the look of the kitchen. It’s an important addition and investment to the room.
