What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Natural stoneThe grain and veins of natural stone give a unique look to the kitchen backsplash. They impart an element of warmth, richness and texture into the kitchen. However, they require high maintenance and need to be sealed periodically. In this kitchen, marble is continued from the countertop to the backsplash to give a seamless and opulent high-end look. One can also consider composite stone such as quartz for the kitchen backsplash.Note: If you want a rough and tough kitchen, then do not use marble as the backsplash (or countertop) because everyday ingredients like haldi and mustard oil are highly likely to stain the marble.
9. Hidden touch latchesNot for those who use their kitchens frequently for cooking items heavy on the oil or butter. Fingerprints on the fronts of your doors will drive you mad! But it’s very sleek and cool looking to not have a stick of hardware in sight.What they do for the kitchenThese latches offer the ultimate minimalist choice – no hardware statement or accessorising at all.They work well with Exotic veneer cabinets for which you don’t want anything to compete with the gorgeous wood, and full-height stone backsplashes that match the countertops for a restrained palette.Read more:What’s the Best Material for Kitchen Cabinets?Tell us:What kind of hardwares have you used in your kitchen?
