Comparing Backsplashes: Crucial Elements of a Custom Kitchen

While every custom kitchen is different, some shared components add to the room’s functionality and aesthetics.

Are you interested in remodeling your home’s kitchen this summer? While every custom kitchen is different, some shared components add to the room’s functionality and aesthetics. Backsplashes are indispensable parts of keeping everything clean. The thing is, they don’t get as much attention and recognition as they deserve. Should your new-look kitchen include a standard backsplash or its fuller counterpart? Here is a comparison for you to consider! 

The Height of the Backsplash Matters 

More often than not, you’ll see standard-style backsplashes. What this means is that these features will be four inches tall. The measurement is based on how high the backsplash stretches away from the kitchen countertop. On the other hand, full backsplashes cover the entire gap between the countertop and the bottom of the upper cabinets. In some cases, custom homeowners (and homeowners in general) will choose to incorporate backsplashes that go all the way to the ceiling.

Reasons to Choose the Standard Backsplash 

Why should you select a standard backsplash? That’s a great question. Among its advantages is the fact that it’s much easier on your wallet. Many aspects of remodeling or renovation work can leave you in a deep state of sticker shock. Four-inch backsplashes save you money which you can turn around and allocate to other parts of your home. When you decide to use a high-end construction material, you can expect to pay more. That’s what makes this backsplash design so popular. 

Reasons to Choose the Full Backsplash

That said, the full backsplash can benefit your kitchen design project as well. For one thing, it eases the visual transition from the countertops to the cabinets. Intricate tilework or interesting features also add some much-needed aesthetic appeal. Perhaps the most compelling reason to install full backsplashes in your custom kitchen is that they’ll do a superior job of protecting your walls. That being the case, you’ll want to focus your efforts on the areas around the stovetop and sink. They’re the most likely to absorb stubborn stains as you put your kitchen through its paces!
