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.
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.
