Is your kitchen in need of an upgrade? Are you considering installing a kitchen backsplash? You will no doubt be faced with a bewildering array of tile colours, patterns, and textures. But one option that has progressively regained its position at the top of the trending charts is large format tiles. But large format tiles as a kitchen backsplash—really?
The answer to that question is an emphatic yes! But why? Consider some reasons:
Okay, we all want to be cool, contemporary and with the times. So, if keeping up with the hottest interior designs is one of your aspirations, then large format tiles for your kitchen backsplash will help you achieve that goal, as large format tile backsplashes are predicted to keep making a strong comeback.
Now let’s think about one of your most precious commodities—your time. A larger tile means less grout lines. Fewer grout lines mean less time scrubbing them clean. Having a larger tile means you can give them a quick wipe down and you’re ready to go.
Large format tiles save on another valued asset—money. They are considerably cheaper than a sheet of cut glass or even a Perspex panel.
Some worry that it may be difficult to install a power point over the tile. But this is rarely a problem as the hole created to put the cable through would be covered by the cover of the power point.
What about the visual impact? Having large format tiles widens the space so your kitchen area looks larger, whereas a plethora of small tiles and many intersecting grout lines can make the space look busy, keeping your eye flitting from tile to tile. Moreover, using rectified large format tiles will take the backsplash to another level. The precise cut of these tiles makes the grout joints nearly invisible. The resulting look is a sleek, virtually seamless surface of clean lines that not only make your backsplash chic and contemporary, but elegant with a touch of class.
