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.
A clear glass backsplash allows the wall behind it to be seen while ensuing a smooth surface which can be easily cleaned. One of the advantages is that you can have a colored backsplash by painting that section of the wall and covering it with glass. Another option is to have an accent wall in the kitchen and frame portions of it in key areas, the backsplash being one of them. A glass backsplash can actually cover the whole area if there’re no cabinet mounted on it.
