Beadboard is a row of narrow wood planks lined up vertically. In between each wood plank is a little indentation or ridge, also known as a “bead”. These days most beadboard comes in long, monolithic sheets that are easy to install and imitate the look of narrow vertical planks. Beadboard is a very practical and beautiful choice for kitchen walls because they are easy to clean. It can be stained or painted and is particularly appropriate in farm, country, or seaside kitchens.
Ceramic tiles, bricks, mosaic stones, wood, metal, marble and even simple paint or wallpaper are all trendy options for kitchen backsplashes. There are no interruptions like when tiles are used and makes cleaning easier, although it also means that the backsplash needs to be spotless to actually look great. Providing an easy-to-clean and good-looking backdrop for the shelves but it’s also an important aesthetic feature for the kitchen, being a source of color for the space.
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.
