The various types of marble come from different areas on the globe, including Italy, Spain, Greece, Sweden, Russia, US or Romania. Carrara marble is possibly the most common type of all. It comes from Italy and it’s also among the most affordable types or marble. It can be distinguished by its white, gray or blue-gray coloring and linear veining which can either be small and fine or soft and feathery. In the kitchen, marble is often used ad countertops and backsplashes.
Beadboard is a row of narrow wood planks lined up vertically. In between each wood plank is a little indentation or ridge, also known as a “bead”. These days most beadboard comes in long, monolithic sheets that are easy to install and imitate the look of narrow vertical planks. Beadboard is a very practical and beautiful choice for kitchen walls because they are easy to clean. It can be stained or painted and is particularly appropriate in farm, country, or seaside kitchens.
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.
