Backsplashes serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. Installed behind the stove and sink, this tiled area protects the kitchen walls from stains and splashes. However, homeowners also have an opportunity in the backsplash to add some flair to their kitchen. From bright and colorful to sleek and metallic, the options are virtually limitless.
Today, Cipriani Remodeling Solutions, a multi-awarded kitchen remodeling business, shares three excellent choices for your backsplash.
Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles
Ceramic or porcelain tiles are among the most popular backsplash options due to their durability and style. These materials are resistant to scratches, heat and water. They’re also quite affordable compared to other backsplash materials. In addition, they’re easy to install and maintain. Simply remove a chipped or damaged tile and insert another to keep the backsplash in perfect condition. However, bear in mind that white tiles and grout specifically may require a bit more effort keep in prime condition. To make things easier, consider choosing darker-colored tiles and grouts instead.
With its sterile and modern finish, a stainless steel backsplash works great in industrial-style kitchens. The material is usually made of flat steel sheets, which your kitchen contractor can install directly onto the wall with glue or screws. Upkeep is simple; just use warm water and a cloth. Use caution with common cleaning products as these typically contain chemicals that may cause watermarks and fingerprints to look more obvious on a stainless steel backsplash. Also, it’s important to note that while stainless steel backsplashes offer incredible durability and resistance to heat, they aren’t as resistant to scratches and dents.
Marble lends a luxurious feel that can easily make your kitchen look stunning. A lighter color usually complements darker cabinet finishes. However, this material chips, cracks, stains and etches easily. It also needs to be sealed regularly.
