So, it's time to remodel your kitchen. Whether enshrined in the eternal 80's with soft pink countertops, or you're just looking for reasons to refresh your appliances, don't despair.

Kitchens can be a messy space. So any chance you have to make yours easier to clean is a must. And a sleek subway-tile backsplash between your counter and the cabinets can give the space a trendy look. By covering your drywall with smooth tiles, it becomes a cinch to clean, needing just a quick wipe down, and no scrubbing required. Plus, it will hold up better against heat and steam than plain drywall.
