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.
Concrete can crack: that’s a risk that comes along with concrete countertops, most commonly when poured in place rather than pre-cast. To prevent it, you may add fiber reinforcement, rebar, and/or wire mesh but if they still appear, they can be repaired. Concrete backsplashes require maintenance. Reseal your backsplash every one to three years, avoid abrasive cleaners and scrubbers that can damage sealer. Consider all these pros and cons and decide if concrete is worth it or not.
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.
