A kitchen backsplash is about more than just aesthetics. Although it adds beauty and design to the space, it also has several practical uses. Fortunately, with the right kitchen design team by your side, you can create a backsplash that is just as beautiful as it is useful.
Why We Think a Kitchen Backsplash is a Must
Including a backsplash in a kitchen is something we love to do. Just in case you’re not convinced, here are three reasons why you may wish to include this design element in your kitchen renovation:
1. Added visual component
A backsplash adds beauty and design to your kitchen. With the abundant amount of materials available on the market, there’s bound to be splash that appeals to your taste. Ceramic, stone, porcelain, glass, metal, Travertine, and Thermoplastic (faux metal) are some of the options. And with every material that’s available comes a variety of color choices. A backsplash will surely add interest and beauty to any space.
2. Splat happens
Tomato sauce and the oh-so-dreaded grease splatters can stain painted drywall. Many cleaning products strong enough to remove sauce and grease are also strong enough to strip the paint from the walls. Backsplashes are made of durable materials that may withstand hot grease and strong chemicals. Backsplashes not only leave you with stylish kitchens, but also clean spaces.
3. Moisture defense
Imagine spilling a gallon of milk on your counter. Not only would the liquid drip down the front of the cabinets, it would also seep into the back of them as well. Even smaller spills run the risk of developing into mold problems. A backsplash provides added protection.
A Wise Investment
Kitchen backsplashes range in price depending on the size of the area and materials used. Expect to spend anywhere from $500 or more. The investment is worth the money spent when you see the finished product and realize the added protection it provides for your kitchen.
