Selecting Backsplash Ideas For Dark Cabinets

Matte vs Polish: These items can be used in the kitchen backsplash selection. Since the polished models will reflect the light, they can be preferred in the kitchen with dark cabinets. Another feature of glossy surfaces is that they can better hide water spots and fingerprints. On the other hand, the backsplash with a matte surface can also provide a more comfortable and softer appearance.

Color: The white color still takes first place among the first preferred colors for kitchen tiles and it is thought that it will continue and maintain its popularity. This color is used in the classic metro style up to the modern shaped ones. On the other hand, the shapes of especially patterned tiles are designed on a white surface. So you may want to pick the color with a sleek look and an eye-catching backdrop.

Size: If you don’t want your kitchen to stay out of fashion, the tile size you will use can be a 3 X 6 metro shape, or if you use 4 X 4 in a flat set pattern, you can ensure that your kitchen design remains timeless.
