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.
Metallic décor got super popular several years ago, and silver and brass popped up in different spaces. But now a metallic shade that is the most popular one is copper because it makes you space look more refined, glam and chic, and this color isn’t hacky. If you want to follow the trend and give your home a trendy copper shine, there’s a great and durable idea for your kitchen. Copper backsplashes can easily fit most of cabinetry colors: white, emerald, black, navy, brown and so on.
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.
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.
