Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
Our favorite part of going with a paint solution is that there is a variery of styles to coat a variety of materials, ranging from wood to tile to glass. You can keep the new style simple by just sticking to one shade or add a bit more flair by using a stencil to create a design in a secondary accent color. Choosing between matte, satin, and high-gloss styles also offers a variety of looks within a single hue.
For those who love the idea of a , there’s no better way to go than a wooden backsplash. All you need for this remodel is a wood of your choice and liquid nails to help adhere the new planks over your existing material.
In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up, especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
