You don’t have to stick to the traditional whites and creams when painting. You can paint your beadboard backsplash in any color, which will enhance the theme of your kitchen interior and match or contrast, if you wish, the color of your cabinetry. Try using a dark beige, slate blue, or mint green for a look that’s a little bit country and a yet edgy, too. On the whole, beadboard is great for kitchen backsplashes, this is a material with a lot of advantages and it’s easy to install yourself.
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.
The various types of marble come from different areas on the globe, including Italy, Spain, Greece, Sweden, Russia, US or Romania. Carrara marble is possibly the most common type of all. It comes from Italy and it’s also among the most affordable types or marble. It can be distinguished by its white, gray or blue-gray coloring and linear veining which can either be small and fine or soft and feathery. In the kitchen, marble is often used ad countertops and backsplashes.
Tiles are very popular for backsplashes of any kind because they look posh and are long-lasting, they also withstand high temperatures that can appear around the cooking area. Silver, brass, copper ones, small and narrow rectangular ones, penny ones or more eye-catching, in some bold and creative shapes. Make a bold backsplash not only in the cooking spaces, highlight your home bar or another zone with metallic tiles – it’s always a great solution that never goes out of style.
