Backsplashes are a necessity in any kitchen, bathroom, or other space with a functional sink. A backsplash serves to protect your walls from liquid damage while cooking and cleaning. In today’s design world, there are a few trendy backsplash options to really complement your countertops and increase the value of your home.
Short Stone Backsplash
A popular, simple, and cost-effective trend is to use the same stone you selected for your countertop to create a 3 – 8 inch high backsplash around the perimeter of your countertop. This short backsplash serves as an effective splashguard, preventing minor liquid spills and water splashes from leaking behind your countertop or splashing up against your walls. The height of the backsplash can be customized according to your needs! We’ll use the same slab that we used for your countertop to create these simple backsplashes for you.
Full-Height Stone Backsplash
Much like the shorter stone backsplashes, full-height stone backsplashes also create an effective splashguard, preventing any liquids from damaging your walls. Full-height backsplashes are very trendy right now, as this option allows you the ability to continue using the design of your countertops right up to the underside of your wall cabinets. It creates a beautiful, continuous look in the design of your space. Another alternative is to use a stone that contrasts your countertop!
Again, the height of the backsplash can be customized according to your needs! We can also make cutouts in the backsplash for outlets and other accessories.
Subway tiles and mosaic tiles are another way to add character and texture to your space! Many home remodelers and designers choose to use a simple white, black, or gray subway tile to help draw attention to the beauty of the granite, quartz, or marble countertop. On the flip side, some people love unique, complex tile backsplash designs—in which case we recommend selecting a simple, single-colored countertop option. Regardless of which way you prefer it, tile backsplashes are back in style! They are a great accent to a natural or semi-natural stone countertop.
