You may be planning to install a kitchen backsplash, but have you considered adding a focal point to your design? There is a rising trend which is making plaques very fashionable at the moment. The plaques act as a great way to capture and draw the attention of the person entering your kitchen. Many people think of focal points as a chandelier in the living room, but it can be done simply in the kitchen by creating an area with a different texture, or pattern with color panelling.

Sometimes all your kitchen needs to bring it up to modern standards is to install or replace the kitchen backsplash tile. Completely remodelling your kitchen is an expensive and often unnecessary process, so first consider if changing the backsplash on its own may work for you.
