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.
There are a lot of ideas for textures, shades and looks, and such backsplashes are ideal for contemporary and minimalist spaces but you may actually go for rustic and glam kitchens, too, and add a sleek wooden backsplash for a contrast. Add additional lights into the cabinets and go for a matching countertop or make it different for a more contrasting look. If you care much about functionality, cover the whole backsplash or its part with a glass screen.
Also quarried from Spain, the crema marfil marble is ideal if you want to add a warm touch to the kitchen. Although available in many different color shades, the light beige is the most common. This type of marble is often used on exterior cladding and tends to have a more rugged look. Each tile is unique and, although all marble tends to look the same, there are lots of little things that makes each piece stand out.
Metallic décor got super popular several years ago, and silver and brass popped up in different spaces. But now a metallic shade that is the most popular one is copper because it makes you space look more refined, glam and chic, and this color isn’t hacky. If you want to follow the trend and give your home a trendy copper shine, there’s a great and durable idea for your kitchen. Copper backsplashes can easily fit most of cabinetry colors: white, emerald, black, navy, brown and so on.
