Backsplashes are wonderful additions to any kitchen, but they can also be just as effective in the bathroom. But what purpose do they really serve? Are they necessary? And are they worth the money? The great news is, we’ve answered these questions before, and we’re more than happy to answer them again here in this brief piece.
The most important purpose of a piece like this is the protection it provides. It doesn’t matter whether you use Formica or slate, the fact is the walls behind your counters and sinks will be far more protected than they would be with nothing at all in place. Many homeowners choose a backsplash for this reason alone, but there’s more.
Backsplashes can also mean you’ll have to clean less, especially if the material you choose is highly resistant to stains. Since it catches everything that might otherwise be thrown onto the walls, or behind the counters, you’ll need only to wipe down this piece to be completely finished.
They can also be as stylish as you want or need them to be, making them an actual part of your interior design scheme. Most often, homeowners match them to their countertops, but even this is not a necessity. They can be used to pull several looks together to create great continuity, or they can be flashy and created for the sole purpose of catching the eye as soon as someone walks into the room.
An often overlooked aspect of backsplashes is that they add tremendous value to your home. The actual amount differs, depending upon the material used to create it, how large an area it takes up, and how many rooms you install them in. This feature can be an integral part of your kitchen or bathroom, and it can even help to close a sale, if you don’t plan on keeping your home.
