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.
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.
Another popular type of marble is Calacatta which is a lot more rare and thus considering a luxury choice. It’s often mistaken for Carrara marble although it presents several unique particularities such as the generally white background and dark veining in large and thick patterns. A marble backsplash can look very elegant and stylish but, given the characteristics of the material, requires constant maintenance. Still, cleaning a marble backsplash is easy.
Tiles are very popular for backsplashes of any kind because they look posh and are long-lasting, they also withstand high temperatures that can appear around the cooking area. Silver, brass, copper ones, small and narrow rectangular ones, penny ones or more eye-catching, in some bold and creative shapes. Make a bold backsplash not only in the cooking spaces, highlight your home bar or another zone with metallic tiles – it’s always a great solution that never goes out of style.
