Adding a backsplash to your kitchen wall is a great way to make this part of the house a little bit more refreshing. Backsplash does more than just add a pop of color; it also makes the kitchen look neat and organized despite the surrounding clutter.
If you happen to be renovating your kitchen, then it’s a good idea to add a backsplash onto the walls, especially that in the sink and counter sections. Below are a few good tips:
1. Painted frosted glass.
If you want a protected, yet at the same time pretty backsplash on your kitchen wall that requires only minimal cleaning, then use painted frosted glass. You can set the painted part facing the wall, so that the color will be protected by the pane itself. The frosted look adds translucence and style, and makes the area easy to clean (with only a few wipes!).
2. Bamboo shards.
Meanwhile, if you’re trying to be more eco-friendly, then you may want to use wood planks as backsplash, such as that of bamboo. The good thing about bamboo is that it is resilient to water, thus it is able to maintain its natural beauty despite the constant moisture. You can add side lights placed under the cupboards to highlight the wood in case you want to highlight this feature.
Want more texture and a touch of Zen? Then use cobblestone and pebbles as kitchen backsplash! You can deck pebbles on the wall and make them stick using cement, and there you have a textured, yet at the same time cozy kitchen wall.
