If you wanna add a texture and a unique touch to the space, go for a textural wooden backsplash. It can be a backsplash of reclaimed or aged wood, just some vertical or horizontal wood planks or just some wood clad in a pattern, for example, chevron. You may go for such a look not only for rustic, chalet, vintage and shabby chic kitchens but also for many others, too. Rock a modern kitchen with such a backsplash for a contrast.
It’s like a protective sleeve for the wall. Cleaning certain portions would be a bit difficult though but then again cleaning a bare wall is not any easier. A cool thing about a glass backsplash is that it looks very smooth and glossy, reflecting the light in an elegant way. You can accessorize it with knife racks and all sorts of other things just like you would any other kind of backsplash. Even the small backsplash area is very refreshing, keeping the decor simple.
Everyone has their own opinion related to marble as a material suitable for interior decor, especially in the kitchen. The marble backsplash is especially eye-catching. As any other material, marble has both pros and cons and we’ll get to those in a minute. Marble is used as a building material and also in sculptures. There’re many different types, each having its own particularities that help us distinguish between them.
For one thing to choose beadboard, you want to think about the width of the board and the depth of the bead. Wider boards add a soothing effect to a busy, cramped kitchen, while narrower is a good choice if you need to tie a large room together. As to the bead, the deeper it is, the more you’ll get that look of handcrafted quality, but keep in mind, very deep grooves can also be tricky to clean. Beadboard will give your kitchen a cozy rustic touch, or make a bold accent with a contrasting color.
