Backsplash: Practical and Decorative Design Feature
A customized backsplash protects your walls while adding a style statement to your home.
The function of a backsplash is twofold: practical and decorative.
Foremost, a backsplash prevents damage to the wall from water, grease and heat. It also makes the surface easier to clean.
Second, it enhances the decor. A custom designed back splash adds personality and visual interest to your home.
What is the Appropriate Backsplash Size?
Backsplash size depends on the dimensions of the wall, location, and the homeowner’s preference and budget.
Backsplashes are often a continuation of the countertop;either an integral vertical extension up the wall or an additional piece separately adhered.
The standard height of a typical backsplash is four inches; however, custom-designed pieces, such as those from our studio, can be made to suit your particular needs and desires.
Larger backsplashes, such as those behind a cook top, ensure maximum wall protection from grease splatters and heat. Ample space also provides an opportunity for a dramatic decor focal point.
Backsplashes can be constructed from a wide variety of materials.
Concrete is heat resistant and waterproof and can easily be cleaned with soap and water.
Concrete is a versatile building material that can be customized to reflect your interests or design style of your home.
A backsplash is beneficial for two reasons:
(1) sensible for wall preservation and efficient cleanup
(2) adds an important visual statement to a home
