Patti, if you are referring to keeping the backsplash clean please look on the Boral website under Thin Brick with this link for more information about the product - http://www.boralbestblock.com/product-lines/thin-brick.

this is a silica, quartz concrete type material. essentially you have to treat it like a brick or concrete wall. Sealer as suggested earlier may shift the colour and if you plan on using it, will need to be cleaned properly first. A good scrub, using a brush with something like TSP will likely be your most effect cleaner now & from time to time as required. if you use TSP put old towels along counter to capture excess moisture. Let dry thoroughly before application of any sealer. Prior to using any chemicals check with Boral Best Block to determine if there is any reason this versatile cleaner wouldn't be suitable. it is used by painters to prepare surfaces for generations! Week to week, vacuum thoroughly.

Are these sealed with anything so that they can be easily cleaned and wiped down behind the range?

Same question: Can these bricks be sealed for easy cleaning and to prevent discoloration from cooking?

Does this picture have cooler tones to it? I ask because the pictures that I have seen of the cream Bertazzoni range are much more yellow. This looks off-white, which would be perfect for my kitchen. Thanks!

The trick to great stainless countertops is to use "multi-directional" stainless. That's where the fabricator actually uses a circular machine to etch the surface with lines. So, the finishes doesn't look like your fridge but it doesn't spot like your fridge either. Yes, it does scratch but the scratches are much less noticeable than basic stainless and it wears beautifully. It's more expensive but well worth it.

@susanhackernj It is a case by case situation depending on the range, tile, design, etc. For most instances, the hood is already set in place and tile is applied/installed after.

Thank you for your compliments and interest in this kitchen space. Unfortunately the window shades were selected by the homeowner and interior designer and we do not have record of their selections. As for the paint color, I am guessing you are referring to the cabinet color. The selections show this color is Heirloom Sage they are custom cabinets done by King Street Kitchens and they will be able to best answer your inquiry.

What a awesomely genius way to resolve the window height with countertops. I can't tell you how many times that I have wanted to put countertops underneath windows, and have done something else. This solution is so simple! Why didn't I think of it first! :)

This is a great kitchen and the brick backsplash is a great touch to the room! With the Boral Thin Brick you have the option to seal the brick, but it is not necessary - the brick can be cleaned with soap/detergent. If you decide to use this product make sure to check with a Boral Sales Rep with all of your questions prior to starting. Hope this helps and glad you enjoy it as much as us!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Cooking With Color: When to Use Green in the Kitchen
Here's an example of a nice neutral gray-green that will work well with any other color you choose. It contrasts nicely with the warm wood floor and brown-orange brick in a fetching, soothing palette.
Becky Harris added this to Yes, You Can Use Brick in the Kitchen
The easiest way to get the look of real brick without having to accommodate its weight is to use a brick veneer, which is typically ¾ inch thick. The veneer on this backsplash is Thin Brick by Boral Stone in Tuscan Blend. It is a concrete-based product.“Sealants are not necessary on these products,” says Kris Knannlein of Boral Stone Answers. “However, if you choose to seal it, it must be a silane-based breathable sealer.” She warns that using a sealer may darken the color, slow the natural movement of moisture out of the brick and/or increase the possibility of efflorescence.Anatomy of a Brick Veneer Wall
