Kitchen Backsplashes / July 15, 2018 / Addison Smith.
We have taken and used chalkboard paint ideas here before and if I remember correctly, we mentioned this particular idea as well. The reason chalkboard paint can be a great backsplash idea is because of the ever changing possibilities. You can write a new funny message everyday, list a favorite recipe, draw funny faces, or cover the area with an artful design to name a few. The particular pattern seen in this image shows alternating shapes and tones of light and dark achieved through the use of a stick of chalk. Isn’t it a fun idea?
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
I hope you liked these wonderful backsplash ideas and I also hope that they will inspire you to do your own projects, adding personal touches at every step.
From pounded copper to bamboo to chalkboard, there’s really no limit to what materials can be used.
