How to Choose a Denver Glass Backsplash


March 15, 2017

Homeowners spend a lot of time choosing the right colors and materials for their countertops and cabinets, but they often forget about their backsplashes. A Denver glass backsplash can completely transform your kitchen—but you have to choose the right one! Here are some tips to help you make it happen:

Determine your style.

First and foremost, it’s important to figure out what kind of style you want in your kitchen. Do you consider yourself to be fairly traditional? Or do you think of yourself as more of an edgy trendsetter? If you prefer a traditional look, stick to classic glass designs instead of going with what’s new and trendy. Remember, it’s your home, so it should reflect your personal style!

Create focal points.

Are you worried about overdoing it with a busy backsplash? If so, choose a simple, plain backsplash for the majority of your kitchen and then use bold colors or patterns in select focal points. For example, you could stick to a solid neutral color for the backsplash throughout most of your kitchen, and then switch to a bright color and create a bold pattern in the spaces above your sinks and stoves. These areas tend to get the most attention in a kitchen, so if you only want a splash of color in your backsplash, this is where it should go.

Another bonus? If you only use bold colors and patterns in these spaces, it’s very easy (and less expensive) to replace it when you want to try something new down the road.  

Consider the rest of your kitchen.

The backsplash may be a small part of your kitchen, but it’s still fairly noticeable, so it will stick out like a sore thumb if it doesn’t mesh well with the rest of your kitchen. Before choosing a glass backsplash, be sure to bring home samples or take lots of pictures so you can start to visualize how it will look with your counters, appliances, flooring, and cabinets. Everything doesn’t have to match, but the pieces should all complement each other.

Look for inspiration.

Don’t settle for a glass backsplash that you’re not completely in love with. Before you choose a design, look for inspiration on sites such as Pinterest or HGTV. If you can’t make up your mind, you should also ask the staff at Natural Stone Sales to see examples of backsplashes they’ve installed for other clients. This is a great way to look for inspiration because once you find a look you love, you can ask them to use the same materials in your kitchen. Get inspired by these glass backsplash ideas.
