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.
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.
As for cons, glass isn’t the most durable material to make a backsplash plus it requires maintenance: you will have to clean it every day as splashes are clearly seen on the glass. A window backsplash means you won’t have much privacy, which can be essential, and it can fit not every style, for example, shabby chic or rustic won’t look that nice with a window backsplash. Here are some examples you may try.
