Backsplash tile in BurnabyLooking for backsplash tile in Burnaby? Tile is the perfect choice for kitchen backsplashes that see a lot of action. A tile backsplash holds up well to dirt, grime, and grease and also looks clean and stylish. Because of its durability, a tile backsplash can last for years and even decades.

Still, if you’re choosing tile for your backsplash, be prepared to make a lot of choices. Fortunately, Floor Coverings International Northshore can help!


Your backsplash does serve a practical purpose. Namely, it protects your walls from splatters and spills with an easily wipe-able surface. Stillthe color, texture, size, and design of your backsplash tile is an important consideration.

You’ll have a lot to choose from, including material (such as glass or ceramic), color or design, texture, finish, shape, and size. You’ll also have to choose your grout color, keeping in mind that lighter grout tends to show dirt more obviously.


Most tile backsplashes will hold up in your kitchen for a long time. However, thick, heavyweight tiles will generally last longer than thin, lightweight tiles. Furthermore, ceramic tiles won’t last quite as long as glass tiles as the latter tend to scratch more easily and may crack more easily as well.


Lastly, don’t forget cost. Before setting out to choose your backsplash tile, always consider how much you’re willing to spend. Keep in mind that standard-sized tiles (4×4”, 6×6”, 12×12”, and 16×16”) are always going to be less expensive than custom-sized backsplash tile. Similarly, glass tile is more expensive than ceramic tile, and standard colors will cost less than hand-painted tiles.
