Slab Backsplashes: A Trending Kitchen Upgrade with Durability and Aesthetic Appeal

slab backsplashes Ask any interior designer or contractor what one of the hottest kitchen backsplash options is right now and they will tell you ‘slab backsplashes.’ Slab backsplashes can be the same as the countertop material simply carried up the wall or can be a contrasting stone and pattern as well. It all depends on your design preferences, budget, and home. Natural stone slabs that are unique and expressive are on trend for countertops as well, and that trend has extended into backsplashes.

Why Slab Backsplashes are the Hottest Trend in Kitchen Design

Slab backsplashes are a beautiful, bold, and unique way to add visual interest to your kitchen. You can’t help but say ‘wow’ when you see beautiful stone offsetting your cabinets and countertops. And, depending on the stone and the pattern or features of the stone, it can almost function like its own work of art, right in your kitchen. You can choose to have the natural stone end at the base of your cabinets or extend all the way up the wall to the ceiling, depending on your unique kitchen design. The cascading effect of the stone from the ceiling down the wall all the way thru the countertops is a seamless, truly stunning addition to any kitchen.

The Functional Advantages of a Slab Backsplash

In addition to aesthetic appeal, there are functional advantages of opting for a slab backsplash as opposed to a tile backsplash. Not only are there fewer grout lines distracting the eye from the beauty of the kitchen, a reduction in grout lines means less cleaning. A natural stone slab backsplash is a flat and durable surface, which is easy to wipe down and keep clean. And, without grout lines that need to be routinely sealed to prevent discoloration over time, your backsplash will keep looking great with minimal maintenance. If you are remodeling your kitchen or building a new kitchen, consider implementing a slab backsplash to make a statement that is timeless, durable, and truly beautiful.
