It’s no fun to scrub bits of food off the painted wall behind the kitchen faucet. Sometimes when you work a bit too enthusiastically on that, the paint even comes off in bits! Then what can be done?
That would definitely be time to call your favorite contractor and have some backsplash tile installed. You want it done right, and with several years of grease and tiny food particles that may still be on that wall, no matter how hard you scrub, you really want someone who knows exactly how to do it.
After selecting your contractor, then you will want to decide what sort of tile will work for you. Color, style, and material are all factors that have to be considered. Subway tile is an eternal favorite, but you may prefer something a little more creative.
Also, you can have the tile go only between the countertop and the bottom of the upper cabinets, or possibly all the way to the ceiling! Do your research and be sure you select something that you will love for many years to come.
Here are a few samples that we have installed in recent years in Bellingham and Whatcom county:
