HELP! 2 different kitchen backsplashes?
March 23, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are planning a kitchen remodel. We have the main L shaped wall cabinets in a wood stain, with a creamy quartz countertop. We have an island and also a wet bar area in a creamy cabinet color with a dark brown quartz countertop. I was planning a light travertine subway tile backsplash behind the stove and surrounding wall. I was going to have beadboard on the back of the island, as well as the wall behind the wet bar, which would give the wet bar more of a hutch look. Also those two pieces are the same in color. The wet bar is separate from the rest of the cabinetry by a doorway. We have an open concept floor plan with a stacked stone fireplace in the adjoining great room. My husband wants to use that stone as a backsplash only behind the wet bar. (I would be afraid of putting it behind the stove because it would be so hard to clean. ) I am afraid the two different backsplashes would look to busy and not at all cohesive. AM I making too much of a fuss about this? Sorry, no pictures yet, it's still in the planning stages.
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
HI -- No ,don't use the stacked stone behind the stove ! Nightmare to clean . It would be ok behind the bar but may look too heavy . I think you should keep tile in these areas . There is tile that would give you a similar look to the stacked stone but be more suited to the kitchen use. Besides the stacked stone fireplace should stand alone with it's look . It is a feature of the house ,right ?
