The wall space above the counters in a bathroom or kitchen is a prime area for splashes of all kinds — water, soap, dirt, grease and even flames. Protecting your home with a durable backsplash — a material that covers this wall space — is a solution that takes advantage of this area as a prime decor opportunity, as well.Tiles For Sale Cape Town
We’ve compiled this complete guide to backsplashes to highlight the best backsplash material for providing both durability and style.
The Benefits of a Backsplash
Designing a kitchen or bathroom presents many fun design choices for homeowners. Just one of these choices is to install a backsplash, whether during new construction, remodelling, or as a quick update to existing decor.
A backsplash can make a big splash with colour, shape, size, texture, installation pattern, or all of the above! You may think that achieving such a style impact is time-consuming or expensive (or both). Because backsplashes tend to be small areas (as opposed to floors and complete walls), they are typically an affordable project that DIYers can accomplish over the weekend (as opposed to floors and complete walls). Despite being a relatively small-scale undertaking, adding backsplash packs a design wallop with valuable benefits.
The most important benefit of a backsplash lies beyond the style impact, in functionality. The area behind the counter in a kitchen or bathroom must be able to withstand moisture (that can lead to mould growth), stains, heat, and impact from daily activity (that can mar the appearance), all of which can destroy an unprotected wall surface. Backsplashes can protect your wall, ensuring that your space stays strong and stylish for years to come.
What to Look for in a Backsplash Material
A homeowner’s primary concern when considering backsplash materials is that it needs to be able to stand up to the elements that space is exposed to on a daily basis. The material you choose should be moisture- and flame-resistant for your family’s health and safety. Also, your backsplash should be low-maintenance since the backsplash is an area that can get messy and require regular cleaning.
Choosing a material that works with your cabinetry, flooring, paint, fixtures, and appliances may sound like a tall order. A backsplash can coordinate with your existing elements or you can use the backsplash as an opportunity for a pop of colour or pattern. Most importantly, choose a backsplash material that is stylistically versatile — one that gives you many options so that you can find the perfect backsplash design for your kitchen or bathroom.
