While the ultimate intention of a backsplash is to protect permeable wall structures from the soak and splatter of water, grease and cooking materials, backsplashes make it much easier for a homeowner to maintain a clean kitchen design.
Now that backsplashes are a standard in the kitchen design world, homeowners place a greater emphasis on style, and that's where we come in.
When you work with Kitchen Magic, your countertop bid automatically includes a 4-inch, standard backsplash in either Corian or ceramic tile. Granite countertop owners have the option to use granite, but this is an add-on - as are backsplashes that measure greater than the 4-inch standard.
Here are some of the most popular backsplash options installed by our design-build team.
Corian is for its durability and longevity, not to mention their incredibly low-maintenance benefits. Backsplashes made from Corian boast all that and more. Because it is a composite material, made from natural stone and mineral particles bonded together in a non-porous resin, Corian backsplashes look just like natural stone, making them a favorite option for homeowners with granite, quartz or other solid surface countertops.
Corian is a pretty amazing material: non-porous, mold and mildew resistant, virtually impermeable to heat and breakage, and any scuffs/scratches can be easily buffed out. Countertops and backsplashes made from Corian are designed to last for a lifetime of regular use while maintaining their subtle elegance.
Corian backsplashes are available in more than 140 different colors, and patterns include:
If you choose a Corian countertop, a matching backsplash is the natural choice, and you can opt to have it finished smooth - to blend almost seamlessly with the counters - or you can choose from a variety of stylish patterns. You can also use a changeable, board-mounted backsplash panels that can add a pop of color or pattern, or seasonal decor to your design. These panels are often mounted behind the stove top or in a large expanse of wall to add visual interest.
Would you like a backsplash that has a little more color or pizzazz than Corian offers? Ceramic tiles are incredibly durable and affordable. They come in all shapes and sizes, from 12x12 mock-stone tiles, to small mosaics that can be arranged in a pattern of your choosing. Ceramic tiles also come in pre-patterned sheets which make it ridiculously easy to install a complicated mosaic or geometric pattern in less time than it takes to lay standard tile sizes. For an even more artisan-type backsplash, we also offer glass tiles.
There is always a way to find an attractive option with which to create a complement - or contrast - with the overall kitchen design. Color or shade variations are also used to design a stylish transition between the countertop and cabinets. The wide range of tile options also makes it easy to add color, or to create balance in a kitchen that includes both dark and light finishes.
