If you’re currently in the process of remodeling or renovating your kitchen, you may be wondering whether or not you a backsplash is really necessary? While without a backsplash, you would be able to save money, there’s no denying how important a backsplash actually is.
For starters, let’s define the backsplash. Backsplashes are used in the kitchen on the wall behind the cooker and the sink. The role of these is to reduce staining, damage, and dis-color, amongst many other roles.
If you do not have a backsplash, you may become a victim of water damage, grease damage, and further upset to your kitchen cabinets. So, with this in mind, this blog post will discuss why exactly this piece of kit is necessary.
A backsplash is required for protection
The main role of a backsplash is to protect your kitchen. For the sink, this prevents a build-up of water, water which could perhaps run down the countertops and damage the cabinets (alongside the back wall).
For the oven, without this piece of kit, grease would quickly build-up, your tiles or wall would likely dis-color, and moisture would build up much easier.
It brings the kitchen together
While you may not be a fan of the backsplash, this piece of glass (or choice of other materials) brings your kitchen together. It connects multiple elements and is one of the first things you’ll see upon entering the kitchen.
Therefore, it’s important to choose a design that highlights the best features and one that beautifully connects your design together. Skipping the backsplash altogether would not only provide you with less protection, but it may also leave your kitchen looking a little odd and bare.
The bottom line
A backsplash is absolutely necessary for your kitchen. You should have one both for your sink and stove, protecting against various damages, stains, and a build-up of moisture.
Luckily, there are many designs available at affordable prices, allowing you to beautifully tie up your kitchen design while simultaneously protecting your tiles in the process.
