Backsplash design is a crucial decision when it comes to a kitchen layout. While we’re used to seeing tiled backsplashes, especially subway tile, there is another option. Solid backsplashes will set your kitchen apart from the rest.
Solid backsplashes, also called sheet backsplashes, are made from one solid piece of material. While they can be done in glass, concrete, or stainless steel we (of course) prefer stone. Not only do they add a sleek and cohesive element to your design, they’re much easier to keep clean. No need to dig out stubborn grease from the grout lines behind the stove.
Here are a few of our favorite design options for a solid backsplash
1. Solid white
As we’ve said before, there’s nothing as classic as a pure white motif. A solid white stone back splash melts into the background, letting other elements of the kitchen take center stage. They’ll never go out of style and are easy to decorate as the seasons change.
2. Carry On Countertops
Another popular option is to continue the same stone from your countertop onto the backsplash. This creates continuity in the design. If you’re particularly in love with the pattern you chose this is a great way to make sure everyone sees it. We suggest going with lighter colored stones, but don’t be afraid of marbling or other patterns.
3. Strikingly Dark
A glossy dark solid backsplash that extends throughout the entire cooking space brings contrast and drama to a design. Go with a glossy finish to reflect other light surfaces in the space, especially if you like a modern, minimalist vibe. If you’re worried about it being too harsh, soften it up with natural wood or textiles.
