Kitchen Backsplashes / April 11, 2018 / Anthony Williams.
The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials, whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget, splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
A kitchen can look finished without a backsplash, and sometimes a clean coat of (washable) paint is what best executes a design. But at the same time, there’s also an opportunity to use the space to anchor the overall design of the room.
One of the easiest, most fun and versatile ideas is to have a chalkboard backsplash. That’s because it’s easy to get right since all you have to do is paint the wall and let it dry. Then you can customize it however you want and you’ll never get bored of it. And even if you choose not to write anything on the wall, it will still look great.
The kitchen backsplash is placed on the kitchen wall between the countertops and the wall cabinets. It is meant to protect the walls from staining, especially in the zones close to your sink and stove, the places where you cook, clean, and prepare food. While your backsplash might stain, the materials it is made from will be very easy to clean and maintain.
