Like Playing Blocks — for Grownups Did you enjoy playing blocks as a child? Maybe you liked stacking them up and then letting them tumble down. Or maybe you enjoyed creating the most elaborate structures you could dream of. People with this affinity for playing blocks often find that they like working as contractors and construction workers. After all, these jobs are sort of like playing blocks for grownups! You get to build things, albeit these things are much more complex than block towers. Sometimes, you also get to knock things down. If you like this analogy as much as we do, then we invite you to read more about construction and contractors on this website.



Whether you are completely gutting your kitchen and starting from scratch or simply giving your kitchen a quick makeover, there is one way you can get the most bang for your renovation buck: by adding a backsplash. Many people forget to add a backsplash or overlook the importance of what they believe is a cosmetic upgrade. Here are a few of the many benefits of having a tile backsplash professionally installed in your kitchen.

Add Some Color to Your Kitchen 

Many people choose neutral colors for their kitchen, including neutral or earth-toned countertops, flooring, and cabinets. If you want to add some color without breaking the bank, consider a colorful backsplash. There are several types of tile backsplashes that can help you make your kitchen look and feel more colorful.

Find the ideal color for your backsplash by drawing inspiration from a decorative piece in the kitchen or an adjoining room. For example, if you have a painting in a nearby dining room, use a color from that painting as an inspiration for your kitchen backsplash.

Increase the Interest of Your Home to Potential Buyers

If you are putting your home on the market and want to make some minor improvements, or if your kitchen is outdated, adding a simple tile backsplash is a great option. It does not cost a lot of money to have a simple white subway tile backsplash installed in your kitchen. However, this small upgrade can help improve the value of your home and make potential buyers take notice of the property.

Protect Your Walls

One of the biggest and often most overlooked advantages of a tile backsplash is the tile will protect the walls from damage. When you cook, boil, and create family dinners on the stove, the oils and grease will splash on the walls. Cleaning products can also discolor the walls and you might have small children who create artwork on your kitchen walls too.

A tile backsplash will protect the lower portion of your walls from grease, water, and other forms of damage.

Makes Your Kitchen Easier to Maintain

Finally, if you have ever tried to clean your painted or wallpapered walls, it can be difficult, especially if you are cleaning off grease, oils, and other cooking-related stains. It is much easier to clean off tiles. All you need to do is use a multipurpose cleaner and a soft cloth to maintain your tile backsplash.

From protecting your walls to adding some color to your kitchen, there are several benefits to installing a kitchen backsplash.
