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.
Wooden kitchen backsplashes are a chic and very creative idea to rock, it’s a fantastic way to stand out with the backsplash and create an amazing look. Wood and plywood of all kinds are welcome for decorating the kitchen you also can add a glass or acrylic screen in the cooking zone. Let me share some ideas to inspire you. Sleek wood or plywood backsplashes immediately give your kitchen a more fresh and contemporary look while adding warmth with its look.
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.
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.
