In the kitchen there aren’t many elements that have the possibility of becoming focal points. Usually the walls are painted in a neutral color, sometimes with an accent wall, the furniture has a uniform look throughout and the appliances also share similar characteristics. Among the elements that usually stand out we could mention the hardware, the lighting fixtures and the backsplash.In the kitchen, the backsplash is a must-have.
Beadboard lends a clean look to any room and is an easy way to add architectural detail to plain old walls. Besides kitchen walls and ceilings, beadboard can be also used for kitchen backsplashes. The easy installation in considered amongst the biggest advantages as you may use prefabricated sheets and it will take less than a weekend to install your backsplash. Last but not least, the price of beadboard kitchen backsplash is significantly lower compared to other options.
Certain types of marble such as the Emperador which comes from Spain, are ideal for high-traffic areas and fireplace surrounds. Still, their unique color tones can also be used to give a kitchen backsplash a stand-out look. This particular type has grains with irregular veins which makes each tile unique and offers the opportunity to create interesting patterns. As always, a marble backsplash presents both advantages and disadvantages.
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.
