If you are remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, and are faced with the choice of whether or not you should install a backsplash, you might be tempted to cut the cost and skip it. It's understandable, money is always tight on a remodel, and maybe the benefits of having one aren't immediately obvious, but there is more to the backsplash than meets the eye!
If you're still sitting on the fence, About Floors n' More would like you to consider a few of the benefits of this feature before you say no...Trust us; you'll thank us by the end! Here are a few major reasons to consider one for your next kitchen or bathroom remodeling project:
They Protect Your Walls
Water damage is a serious concern for kitchens and bathrooms. It can lead to structural damage from rot, as well as mold and mildew problems that can have serious effects on your health, and even lead to your home being condemned in serious cases!
By installing a waterproof barrier, you can protect your walls from these serious problems in a fairly cheap and effective way.
They Save You Time
Cleaning hard-to-reach bits of food, grease and stains from the wall, are another big hassle you can kiss goodbye when you install a barrier that is made from an easily cleaned material, such as tile. These materials are often easily cleaned, and resilient to the scrubbing that is sometimes required to get more stubborn messes clean up.
They Look Great
Functionality isn't the only concern when remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, aesthetics plays an important role, as well! The fact of the matter is that a kitchen or bathroom with a backsplash just looks better than one without. It looks more polished; more finished, and provides a whole other design element that would otherwise be completely absent.
Many of the materials used for these barriers allow for creative customization, such as mosaics, that open up incredible new vistas of design possibilities that are limited only by your creativity.
