You don’t have to stick to the traditional whites and creams when painting. You can paint your beadboard backsplash in any color, which will enhance the theme of your kitchen interior and match or contrast, if you wish, the color of your cabinetry. Try using a dark beige, slate blue, or mint green for a look that’s a little bit country and a yet edgy, too. On the whole, beadboard is great for kitchen backsplashes, this is a material with a lot of advantages and it’s easy to install yourself.
And since it’s not really optional, most of the time people choose to turn it into a multifunctional element that also serves as a decorative detail. There are many options that you can choose for the backsplash. A brightly-colored backsplash would stand out with its bold color and an artistic backsplash would impress on a different level. But if you want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in the kitchen, a brick backsplash is a wonderful idea.
We can add a bunch of options when it comes to kitchen backsplashes, one of which is glass. It’s not as popular as the others but seeing how beautiful it can look. As it turns out, a glass backsplash is an excellent feature for modern and contemporary kitchens and the reasons for that are numerous, starting with the look. One of the things that we love most about glass backsplashes is how smooth and uniform their surface is.
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.
