kitchen backsplash

Here at Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake, we don’t just focus on flooring. We are also experts in designing and installing backsplashes. These stylish and functional pieces are a great addition to homes in the White Bear Lake, St. Paul and Minneapolis area.


What is a Backsplash?

A backsplash is a section of tile that protects your wall from damage. Specifically, the wall behind a sink or stove in the bathroom or kitchen. This area is prone to moisture or oil damage when liquids splash onto the wall as people cook or wash their hands. A backsplash can be made from a variety of materials, but the most popular options are natural stone tiles like ceramic and slate.


Benefits of a Backsplash

A quality backsplash ensures that the wall behind your sink or stove won’t become stained or damaged from prolonged exposure to moisture. Tough substances like oil and food debris can be practically impossible to scrub off of a normal wall. A backsplash saves you from the frustrating cleaning task of scrubbing away at these types of stubborn stains. Materials like ceramic and slate can easily be wiped clean without trouble.


Another great benefit of backsplashes is added style. Many people opt for backsplashes made with stones of varying color and design. You can bring neutral colors together that are part of your décor scheme, or add a new pop of personality to the kitchen with a bold mosaic design. Our experts have lots of experience helping customers choose the right backsplash design for their home.



Though we have mostly focused on ceramic and slate tile as backsplash materials thus far, you can choose from a huge range of materials for your backsplash. Some of the most popular options include:

  • Ceramic Tile
  • Slate Tile
  • Marble
  • Granite
  • Brick
  • Glass Tile
  • Copper or Tin
  • Luxury Vinyl Tile

Our close relationship with top manufacturers at Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake allows us to offer you direct pricing on materials from trusted brands like Shaw and Armstrong. We are happy to help you find the right material for your unique home and budget.
