Speaking about kitchen backsplashes, stone is a chic alternative to bricks, it’s natural, a bit rough-looking but very stylish due to these imperfections. Stone, rocks from your garden, pebbles, marble – the possibilities are endless, and you’ll find a proper backsplash for any kitchen style. Rustic, glam, modern, industrial, vintage – any kitchen will fit a stone backsplash. There are various color of stone to try, you may mix several or if these are pebbles, whitewash them.
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.
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.
