Ponte Vedra Kitchen & Bathroom Remodelers can add an awesome backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom! Backsplashes are the decorative focal point of your space. Think of them like an accent wall. It adds a personal style to your kitchen and can really set the mood for a room.
Backsplashes were originally made solely for function. They were created to protect kitchen walls from splashes of grease or water from the stove or sink (hence the name). Today, they’re viewed as a purely decorative element.
Backsplashes come in all different sizes, shapes, materials and styles. Read on to learn more.
Glass backsplash is similar to ceramic backsplash regarding its versatility and low maintenance. Glass is more expensive than ceramic though. Glass has some other considerations too that make it unique such as the ability to reflect light. This shiny characteristic is desirable to some. You’ll want to consider what opacity to select when designing your backsplash. They can be either completely clear or almost entirely opaque. The ever-popular subway tiles are glass backsplash.
Ceramic is the traditional material used for backsplashes and it is durable, versatile and usually inexpensive as well. It comes in a virtually unlimited amount of shapes, colors and styles. This is one of the most popular types of backsplash both in Ponte Vedra and across the nation.
Metal backsplash is gaining popularity of late. Glass, stainless steel, copper and the like have a reflective quality which can make your kitchen look and feel larger than it is. Like glass there are some other things to keep in mind such as its sheen. It can vary from brushed to shiny. You’ll want to be careful not to overdo it with the amount of metal in the kitchen though if your faucets and appliances are metal. This would be good to consult with an interior designer about. Metal tiles can be somewhat expensive.
Using natural stone isn’t as common but can give your kitchen a very different look. Something like marble will create a chic style while slate will create an something more humble and down-home. You’ll likely want to leave this material to an interior designer just like metal backsplashes. Another thing to consider is that it is pricier and more difficult to keep clean. In fact, it will require special cleaners.
If you read wood and thought "What the heck?
"we're going to have to double down! Wooden backsplashes are gaining in popularity – particularly those of shiplap or beadboard in large part thanks to certain TV shows. It creates a very unique look and is great if you’re going for more of a country or cottage-type feel. You’ll want to be careful about safety if you have gas burners though.
