The Pros and Cons of Granite or Tile Backsplashes


Granite and Tile Backsplash Ideas in Los Angeles

Style comes and goes but when it comes to stone backsplashes it really just is up to your personal preference. The big two choices (aside from the many, many little details you can choose on any design) are granite or tile backsplashes. Here are some things to consider for both.

Granite Countertops Keep it All Safe


Granite is the firm natural stone whose natural home is in the kitchen. Where other countertops brown, scratch, get tired over the years, granite holds on far past whatever warranty a contractor decides to throw onto it. This is why it’s important to hire a decent backsplash installer in Los Angeles because the lifespan of any natural stone is dependant on its installation.

No matter the backsplash ideas you choose to follow, its intention is to protect the wall, but no installs it for utility alone. A granite backsplash makes the kitchen look larger, uniform. It’s a steady rise from a counter, towards the cabinets that make it a centerpiece.

Tile Countertops Give Choice to the Homeowner


You know what cleaning tiles is like. Kitchen designers will try to sell a tile on its easy to clean merit, but at the end of the day when it’s between a granite or tile backsplash, granite wins. When it comes to protection against the many elements of a hectic kitchen, tile does hold its own but not in comparison to granite.

So when confronted with the potential lack of resistance between granite and tile, why ever go for tile? The variety.

Tile has taken its place as the choice kitchen backsplash because of only, solely, its severe flexibility. Homeowners claim that you have the snowflake approach with granite, each one is different - unpredictable, but at the same time that little individual fingerprint isn’t enough.

If durability isn’t concern for you when it comes to a backsplash, it’s all up to the look you want, the variation, that shoulder you want to carry the look of a kitchen.
