When exploring options for home renovations and planning home improvement projects, it can be incredibly easy to get caught up in the look and appearance you want while sometimes letting functionality slip through the cracks. That’s natural. Whether you are preparing to sell your home or just want to give it a fresh new look, everybody wants his or her house to be beautiful inside and out. At Maderaworx, we pride ourselves on completing absolutely stunning home improvement projects without losing sight of the underlying importance of utility. A great example of this is bathroom backsplash. Homeowners are often very excited about their new vanity, sink, or bathtub but forget to consider the installation of something as important as bathroom backsplash. Some of you reading this may not even know what a bathroom backsplash is! That, too, is okay. As you plan an upcoming remodel of your bathroom make sure to put some thought into your backsplash as well.
What is backsplash?
A backsplash is typically found in kitchens and bathrooms and, while it can add a bit of glamour to a room’s aesthetic, it serves a critical function. You will find backsplash on the walls behind sinks, and it will usually run the length of a counter. Because kitchens and bathrooms see so much heavy use, a backsplash is installed to protect the underlying wall from water damage or grimy buildup. It is much easier to clean the protective backsplash than to undo water damage done to a foundational wall.
Typically backsplash extends approximately ten centimeters up from where the counter meets the wall. Ten centimeters is tall enough to protect the “splash zone” without totally overtaking your walls or disrupting the design you have in mind. As with any other project, however, no two homes are alike. Taller backsplash will obviously allow for more protection, but it also creates an additional opportunity to play with the design and aesthetics of your bathroom. If you have questions about any of this, you can trust the home improvement experts at Maderaworx to help you along throughout the entire process.
