Concrete can crack: that’s a risk that comes along with concrete countertops, most commonly when poured in place rather than pre-cast. To prevent it, you may add fiber reinforcement, rebar, and/or wire mesh but if they still appear, they can be repaired. Concrete backsplashes require maintenance. Reseal your backsplash every one to three years, avoid abrasive cleaners and scrubbers that can damage sealer. Consider all these pros and cons and decide if concrete is worth it or not.
Concrete is a very popular material to use in home décor. Are they functional and worth it or not? Concrete a great idea to add an edgy feel, using concrete backsplashes adds texture and depth to the decor. It’s great not only for industrial or minimalist spaces, it’s used in many other kitchens style designs too. Concrete isn’t expensive, comparing it to marble, quartz and other costly solutions, I may say that this is rather a budget-friendly option.
More than that, a chalkboard backsplash is like a canvas, which allows creating any art and notes that you want. This way you personalize the space much more and it becomes more original. Your kids will be happy to chalk on the backsplash while you are cooking and you can chalk down a recipe on it, too. To give yourself and your family more space for creativity, go for a whole chalkboard wall, not just a backsplash.
