Quartz Backsplash Benefits & Ideas

Quartz backsplashes are a no brainer, especially if you are putting in a new quartz countertop. If you're installing a new countertop you can probably get a great deal on a quartz backsplash as well. That's because a backsplash can be made from a piece of quartz that would probably be thrown into the trash anyway.

Buying a quartz backsplash will give your quartz countertop a polished and professional look. Most backsplashes will be about four inches tall and you should ensure that it matches your countertop perfectly.

Getting the backsplash and the countertop to match is a cinch. If you buy the countertop and backsplash at the same time you are ensured a perfect match as the countertop and backsplash will be fabricated from the same batch of quartz.

Another quartz kitchen backsplash detail to keep on eye on is the seams in the backsplash. Most countertops are so long that having one long piece of quartz span the entire length of the countertop is nearly impossible. Seams are a necessary component of most backsplashes, but with a good backsplash layout and some proper planning seams will be minimized.

The trick is to match the seams that are in the quartz countertop to the seams that are in the backsplash. Always align the seams to keep them from standing out. Aligning seams is good backsplash design.

Having a backsplash will keep water from the sink from damaging the sheetrock on your walls. Other stains also make a habit of getting on the walls just above the countertop. Having a nice tall piece of quartz there will make clean up much simpler.

Having a well thought out plan as well as some tried and true kitchen remodel ideas will pay you dividends for decades.
