But concrete is very prone to staining and many other imperfections that can appear. That’s why it’s incredibly important to seal the surface upon installation. Unfortunately, even sealed concrete will show markings, especially olive oil, red wine, juice, or coffee. If you are a freak, opt for some other backsplashes or at least add a glass screen where necessary, some owners go for a fully glass covered backsplash.
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.
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.
