Is your kitchen the heart of your home? If your kitchen is where you gather with family and friends we know how important it is to you that it always look its very best. And that is where we come in! At Cabinets and Designs we are committed to helping you update your kitchen and to make the remodeling process as easy as possible. So let’s bring the conversation back; specifically, back to backsplashes.
The backsplash is that covering on the wall above a countertop, usually next to a work surface that serves two purposes: protective (from spills and other kitchen messes) and decorative. Backsplashes are commonly produced in a variety of materials, from tile to granite to glass to mixed materials.
When selecting a material for your backsplash you should take both practical and decorative issues into consideration. You want your space to be fun and functional; a new backsplash can protect your walls and enhance the design of your space. We have designers who can guide you to the most reliable distributors and designers to help you choose the best material based on your personal taste, current kitchen design, and your remodeling needs.
Glass will give you a more contemporary feel; if you are attracted to modern designs this is an excellent option. Glass is easy to clean, durable, and non-porous which means it won’t absorb stains or odors.
It can be difficult to choose just one material for your backsplash, but who says you have to? Create a totally unique look for your space by mixing materials—glass, stone, ceramic, metal, etc. This approach works particularly well for projects where multiple décor colors come into play and projects where a merging of personal styles and preferences is required.
