We can add a bunch of options when it comes to kitchen backsplashes, one of which is glass. It’s not as popular as the others but seeing how beautiful it can look. As it turns out, a glass backsplash is an excellent feature for modern and contemporary kitchens and the reasons for that are numerous, starting with the look. One of the things that we love most about glass backsplashes is how smooth and uniform their surface is.
Tiles are very popular for backsplashes of any kind because they look posh and are long-lasting, they also withstand high temperatures that can appear around the cooking area. Silver, brass, copper ones, small and narrow rectangular ones, penny ones or more eye-catching, in some bold and creative shapes. Make a bold backsplash not only in the cooking spaces, highlight your home bar or another zone with metallic tiles – it’s always a great solution that never goes out of style.
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.
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.
