It’s like a protective sleeve for the wall. Cleaning certain portions would be a bit difficult though but then again cleaning a bare wall is not any easier. A cool thing about a glass backsplash is that it looks very smooth and glossy, reflecting the light in an elegant way. You can accessorize it with knife racks and all sorts of other things just like you would any other kind of backsplash. Even the small backsplash area is very refreshing, keeping the decor simple.
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.
A big pro is the fact that marble is widely available and comes in many different variations. The cost of a marble backsplash is also a pro in most cases. Although there are rarer options that cost a lot, the more common types are accessible. Some of the most important cons related to marble backsplashes and countertops in general include the fact that marble scratches and stains easily. Nevertheless, it can be easily cleaned with warm water and dish soap.
More than that, a chalkboard backsplash is like a canvas, which allows creating any art and notes that you want. This way you personalize the space much more and it becomes more original. Your kids will be happy to chalk on the backsplash while you are cooking and you can chalk down a recipe on it, too. To give yourself and your family more space for creativity, go for a whole chalkboard wall, not just a backsplash.
