Adding a Tile or Wood Beadboard Backsplash to Your Kitchen

Tile kitchen backsplash

A backsplash behind the countertops in your kitchen not only protects the wall from stains and grease, but it serves to accent the cabinets as well. Tile is the most common backsplash material.

To give a tile backsplash an extra decorative touch, consider inserting a mosaic pattern in the tile. Mosaic accent tiles, like those from JEM Expressions, can be custom imprinted with a wide variety of images including works or art or photographs.

A less common option for a kitchen backsplash is installing vertical wooden beadboard between the countertops and hanging cabinets. This material can be either painted or stained and finished to give your kitchen a rustic country look.

    We are remodeling our entire kitchen and putting up beadboard for a backsplash. My question is whether its ok to put the beadboard up before the formica countertop is installed. Some of the beadboard is going on one entire wall without wall cabinets(only bottom cabinets) and one wall has cabinets. Is there a particular reason to put the countertop in first when using beadboard? It would be so much easier for us to do the beadboard first because we have a 10 foot ceiling and the bottom cabinets wouldn’t be in the way. Thanks for any advise you can give!
