1. Full height stone slabs. There's something about the beauty of natural stone, in particular white marbles that just steal hearts. It's timeless and what's even more interesting is that is works equally as well in a modern kitchen as it does in a traditional one.
Tip: Make sure to visit the stoneyard or warehouse and pick your actual slabs. Not all stone is the same, even though the name might be. And each lot number can have different character, veining and color.
In a more traditional kitchen, the slab of marble looks as timeless as in the modern kitchen we just saw.
Tip: Be sure to consider details like window sill ledges and electrical outlets when doing full-height slab material.
Love the look of white marbles like Calacatta or Cararra but afraid of staining and maintenance of marble countertops? A full-height slab of marble as your backsplash allows you to have your cake and eat it too.
Tip: When doing a full-height glass backsplash, be aware that there might have to be seams. Check with your supplier about where they'll be so you don't have any surprises.
5. Beadboard. If you're looking for something less modern, but still don't want the installation effort of tile, beadboard is a fabulous choice. It adds texture and warmth, and when painted with semi-gloss paint, it's easier to clean and touch up than drywall.
