Renovating on a Budget? Choose a Short Kitchen Backsplash

Kitchen backsplashes are beautiful ways to add some dimension and style to your kitchen. If you’re looking to add a backsplash to your kitchen, consider going with a “short” backsplash to keep your kitchen renovation on budget.

A short backsplash is a minimum of 4-inches tall, although you can choose any height that fits into your budget and looks great in your kitchen. Shorter backsplashes protect your investment in your home and are just as professional in appearance as a standard 18-inch tall backsplash. Some homeowners choose a height that reaches the bottom of the kitchen window casings for a unique style all their own.

Choosing Your Kitchen Backsplash

For a seamless installation, add backsplash material to match your new countertop. You can choose from granite, marble, limestone, soapstone, or semi-precious stone. Other materials for short backsplashes include wood, stainless steel and copper, silestone, caesarstone, viatera, eco and the all time favorite — a tile backsplash.

A tile backsplash can be added to any other type of countertop for a variation in your kitchen. Tile is the most cost-effective material for a short kitchen backsplash, and probably the most popular option as well. You can install one color of tile or mix and match the colors that appear in your countertop, such as different shades of brown, green or blue in a repeating pattern to accentuate your countertops in the kitchen.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
