A Washington DC kitchen design is not complete without the perfect backsplash. Homeowners know about traditional mosaic or subway tile options, but how about something a little more dramatic and elegant for your kitchen remodel? A stone slab backsplash has become an increasingly popular option that many homeowners and kitchen designers are gravitating towards. Using a slab backsplash for a Washington DC kitchen design adds a modern twist that lets folks play up or down this statement area of your kitchen. Here, we’ll cover some benefits of using natural stone slab backsplash and how you can add it to your Washington DC kitchen design.
Natural stones, such as granite and marble, already make for eye-catching countertops in any gorgeous kitchen. Therefore, those who have stone counters are likely to choose a slab backsplash to continue the smooth stone look up onto the walls from the countertop. It’s certainly a bold and impressive look to cover so much surface area of a Washington DC kitchen design with natural stone. Modern manufacturing techniques cut the stone into thin slabs as an alternative to standard backsplash tiles. You can get that luxurious look without spending as much as you may think on enviable natural stone.
A slab backsplash also offers some benefits from being a seamless stone material. Firstly, you won’t need to worry about very prominent grout lines distracting from the overall design. A natural stone backsplash is also quite easy to clean and has heat-resistant properties. As a result, it’s a favored choice to use behind a stove or cooking range.
See if you can acquire and have your slab backsplash cut from the same stone to match your countertops or other natural stone features in your Washington DC kitchen design more closely. You have a lot of options when it comes to how you want to incorporate into your kitchen. Use it to fill the space between your counters and upper cabinets to create the illusion of a full wall of stone. Marble, granite, and even quartzite and limestone can look stunning paired with painted or stained cabinets. If you want to find ways to use slab backsplash more sparingly to keep it a statement feature, use it for partial areas of your kitchen backsplash areas. Some good places to use it are behind the stove, the sink, or to emphasize a luxurious wet bar.
