Wood is a timeless material, which is widely used in architecture and decor – all kinds of it and plywood too. Wood never goes out of style and matches all kinds of styles and color schemes including one more, very fresh and unique idea wood for backsplashes. Wood and plywood may aren’t the best idea for kitchens due to humidity and splashes and grease of different kinds. But modern finishes and types of plywood are such that you can not worry about it much.
In the kitchen there aren’t many elements that have the possibility of becoming focal points. Usually the walls are painted in a neutral color, sometimes with an accent wall, the furniture has a uniform look throughout and the appliances also share similar characteristics. Among the elements that usually stand out we could mention the hardware, the lighting fixtures and the backsplash.In the kitchen, the backsplash is a must-have.
If you wanna add a texture and a unique touch to the space, go for a textural wooden backsplash. It can be a backsplash of reclaimed or aged wood, just some vertical or horizontal wood planks or just some wood clad in a pattern, for example, chevron. You may go for such a look not only for rustic, chalet, vintage and shabby chic kitchens but also for many others, too. Rock a modern kitchen with such a backsplash for a contrast.
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.
