Granite: Very durable because it is stone. Since it’s porous will need to be sealed periodically. Granite is in the high price bracket. Concrete: Very durable although it is possible to crack. It can be molded into shapes and stained different colors. It too, should be sealed and is in the med range price bracket.
What’s more inviting than being welcomed into a cozy ? One of the easiest ways to achieve the “down home” aesthetic is by adding a beadboard backsplash. All application requires is the same liquid nail solution you’d put down for wood paneling, and a few finishing nails around the perimeter for you to create a space fit for the rolling hills.
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.
For a bold effect, select a countertop in a lively color. While some of the top choices include yellows, oranges and lime green, the choice of white or black countertops can be as bold a color choice as yellow, depending on the kitchen.
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.
