Kitchen Backsplash Ideas

Are you planning to remodel your kitchen? Perhaps you’re considering adding a backsplash. A section (usually tiled) that is added to the walls to protect against splashing water, a kitchen backsplash is typically installed behind the sink, cooking range, and/or countertops. You have a wide range of options when it comes to the backsplash:

  • Material (glass, ceramic, etc.)
  • Style (the pattern options are endless)
  • Color (your backsplash can match parts of your kitchen or add a pop of color)

“ From the architects to the carpenters, we had complete confidence in Wentworth's expertise. Once construction started, we were very pleased with the communication we had with Wentworth -- Victor kept us apprised of scheduling issues and other relevant developments, and was (and continues to be) extremely responsive and professional. Wentworth did an outstanding job of resolving every hiccup that occurred during the course of our project. Wentworth met our extremely high expectations in almost every area. Our initial meeting with Bruce made clear that Wentworth was the only real choice for our renovation: unlike the several other architects and builders we consulted, Bruce asked us probing questions about how we use our house, actually listened to us, and then gave us options for renovating our space that were beautiful and met our functional needs. We will recommend Wentworth next time we know someone who's looking to renovate. We love our new space - thank you for creating it! ”
