Solid slab backsplashes have taken the nation by storm. This timeless, yet trendy, look, can turn any vision into a reality. Although solid slab backsplashes create an instant luxury look and feel, they can be done on a budget. Continue reading to find out why you should embrace the solid slab backsplash trend!
A slab backsplash is simply made of continuous materials, or in this case, a few large pieces with the occasional break for an appliance or cabinet. When matched to the countertop, it creates an especially bold look. However, a stone treatment on the wall is actually more eye-catching than one on the counter as your eye will gravitate to the vertical surface first. When combined with a wrapped island, it elevates the overall look. Although this is no small investment, the unique installation will allow for classic elegance.
The minimalist sensibility of unbroken planes makes the slab backsplash a key element in contemporary and transitional kitchens. Balancing a modern look with a timeless, traditional material for the best of both worlds. A stone with large-scale veining suits spacious kitchens, making it ideal for open kitchen concepts and allowing the backsplash to be on full display even from a distance.
As we said, you don’t need a high budget to create a high-end look. By using the space between the range and the hood, you can place a slab of remnant stone to keep the cost low. With a pale or plain treatment for the remaining wall, the stone will dominate your kitchen backsplash space. Similarly, you can use two book-matched pieces of stone to create an elegant effect from smaller slabs.
