Want to boost your kitchen’s wow factor? We can help!
We are continually updating our product options to offer our home buyers the best in the west. When it comes to kitchens, cabinets aren’t the only thing you see. The kitchen backsplash adds depth to your kitchen through texture and color. A beautiful backsplash can be the most striking element of kitchen design. Not only will a backsplash provide beauty, but it will also help protect your walls from water, grease and food.
There are many different types of backsplash materials, designs and colors to choose from, but we have narrowed options for our home buyers down to two:
- Ceramic Tile Backsplash
- Tumbled Stone Backsplash
The backsplash option is offered on all of our floor plans; you can add it whether you are building a 1,400-square-foot or 3,100-square-foot home.
We have been offering the ceramic tile backsplash for more than a year. Ceramic tiles are produced by humans and are originally made from natural elements, such as clay. After installation, it is recommended that a sealant is applied to the tile and grout to help keep water, grease and other residue from absorbing into the grout. Cleaning the ceramic tile backsplash is fairly simple and should be done frequently, whether a sealant has been applied or not. Just use a little soap and water to clean the tile.
The tumbled stone backsplash has recently been added to the product options for Betenbough home buyers. Tumbled stone is a natural stone that is soft and porous. It radiates a rich and natural worn appearance and adds beauty to any kitchen. Like tile, the stone backsplash should be sealed to keep elements from staining or harming the grout and natural stone. Cleaning the stone is a little more difficult than cleaning the ceramic tile. Due to the porous element of the stone, there is a greater absorption of liquids and residue. The good news is that you can combat this problem by sealing the stone and cleaning regularly with soap and water.
Betenbough Homes offers one color for each backsplash selection to keep it simple for our home buyers. We have chosen neutral tones for flexibility with color throughout the kitchen, such as cabinets, countertops, flooring and appliances.
In addition to the backsplash, our 2,500-square-foot-and-up floor plans include a beautiful, uniquely designed medallion inset above the cook top.
Which will it be for you? Ceramic or stone? In my opinion, either backsplash will add a considerable amount of value and pizzazz to your new home.
