Full-Height Backsplashes are Trending

Did you know that you don’t have to settle for just a simple four-inch backsplash or a hard-to-clean grout and tile backsplash?

Today’s homeowners are enjoying more options when choosing backsplash applications for their kitchens and bathrooms. The latest look in home design is a full-height backsplash. So, if you love your countertops, why stop there?

A Full-Height Backsplash Adds a WOW Factor to Your Home

Kitchens and bathrooms are high-impact areas. So, homeowners are upgrading these spaces with full-height backsplashes that either match or complement their countertops.

Full-height backsplashes give your kitchen or bathroom a custom and completely seamless look with a matching backsplash cut from the same slab as your countertops. Some homeowners may prefer to choose their solid stone backsplash from a complementary color or pattern. So, you can go darker for your countertops and lighter for your backsplash, or vice versa.


Myths About Natural Stone

While natural stone surfaces have been making their way into mainstream homes over the past few decades, many homeowners still have some misconceptions about natural stone. Let’s talk about these natural stone myths and what you need to know.

Myth #1: Natural stone is expensive.

While you may find natural stone in nearly every high-end home, these materials are also very affordable for median-priced homes and smaller projects. Stone is available at several price points, and there are many beautiful styles and colors available in the low- to mid-price ranges. In addition, you may find remnant pieces leftover from previous jobs that can be used for a smaller project, such as a sink countertop. So, don’t cross natural stone off your list until you’ve received a quote for your specific project.


How to Protect Your Natural Stone Countertops

Natural stone countertops are a must-have for today’s homeowner, whether building a newly constructed home or planning a home renovation. While they’re not as maintenance free as some man-made materials, it’s still easy to protect your natural stone countertops from stains. The great news is that natural stone countertops are more heat-resistant and scratch-resistant than man-made options. Let’s look at the following simple tips to keep your natural stone as new as the first day it was installed.
