Backsplashes have become a staple feature in many homes across the country, combining aesthetic appeal with pragmatic performance. From a functional perspective, backsplashes protect walls from stains, spills, and a wide range of other moisture-related damages. Additionally, backsplashes provide a unique visual opportunity to add color or style to often overlooked areas.
Are you looking to breathe some life into a drab bathroom? Do you seek to safeguard your kitchen from boiling broths and marinara sauce? Regardless of your rationale, read on for Floor Coverings International Triad’s list of rooms that can benefit from a backsplash upgrade.
The kitchen is a popular choice for backsplash installation, especially surrounding sinks, stoves, and other high-splash zones. As one of the most highly-trafficked areas of a home, an upgrade to the kitchen can feel like an upgrade to the whole house.
Ceramic or porcelain tile are fan-favorite kitchen backsplash choices due to their ease of cleaning and maintenance. Subway tile has also become a trendy addition to modern design, perfect for adding a simple, durable, and industrial ambiance to any space.
Backsplashes have a variety of use cases in bathrooms – around toilets, above sinks, and even in showers. Mildew (a thin white coating of fungal filaments that thrive in damp environments) commonly hides in corners and niches, causing problems for homeowners looking to keep their bathrooms free from fungi.
A backsplash presents a simple solution. With a single disinfecting swipe or the occasional wipe down, water-resistant backsplashes can substantially cut down on mold growth. Glass or mosaic tile are wonderful, colorful options for bathrooms, elevating appearance while minimizing mildew.
Laundry Room Backsplash
Laundry rooms are made to maximize productivity and efficiency, but they aren’t always built with style in mind. Like kitchens and bathrooms, laundry rooms are often humid, moisture-rich environments. However, unlike kitchens and bathrooms, laundry rooms don’t frequently make the top of the list for future home improvement projects.
It’s time to flip the script. Elevate your laundry room’s appearance and preserve the integrity of your walls with the addition of a backsplash. Consider stone or slate in subterranean laundry rooms, or colorful glass in laundry rooms that receive natural sunlight.
