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.
Galvanized and brushed metal backsplashes is a creative and unusual solution, it will add texture to the space at once. Such a backsplash is ideal for a rustic space or can be used for creating a bold contrast in minimalist, glam and other spaces, too. You won’t see such a backsplash everywhere, so making one will make your kitchen stand out, besides, it’s really budget-friendly. You can also go for a regular polished metal backsplash, and such a piece will add style to any kitchen.
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.
