Another popular type of marble is Calacatta which is a lot more rare and thus considering a luxury choice. It’s often mistaken for Carrara marble although it presents several unique particularities such as the generally white background and dark veining in large and thick patterns. A marble backsplash can look very elegant and stylish but, given the characteristics of the material, requires constant maintenance. Still, cleaning a marble backsplash is easy.
But concrete is very prone to staining and many other imperfections that can appear. That’s why it’s incredibly important to seal the surface upon installation. Unfortunately, even sealed concrete will show markings, especially olive oil, red wine, juice, or coffee. If you are a freak, opt for some other backsplashes or at least add a glass screen where necessary, some owners go for a fully glass covered backsplash.
You may go for the wood in some similar color as copper and get a cozy warm-colored kitchen or create a contrasting look with bold cabinetry and a copper backsplash. A shiny copper piece will spruce up any space and add a bit of glam and chic, and if you light up the backsplash, it will reflect it and look even more attractive. Metal copper backsplashes are very functional, easy to maintain and look cool – they add a shiny or textural feel to the kitchen.
