You may go for the wood in some similar color as copper and get a cozy warm-colored kitchen or create a contrasting look with bold cabinetry and a copper backsplash. A shiny copper piece will spruce up any space and add a bit of glam and chic, and if you light up the backsplash, it will reflect it and look even more attractive. Metal copper backsplashes are very functional, easy to maintain and look cool – they add a shiny or textural feel to the kitchen.
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.

A window backsplashes is really a unique idea: you may be sure that not many people have the same in their homes.

This particular type has grains with irregular veins which makes each tile unique and offers the opportunity to create interesting patterns. As always, a marble backsplash presents both advantages and disadvantages.
