Kitchen Backsplashes / September 6, 2018 / Darold Davis
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
If you are skilled with techniques for finishing wood, you could apply a different stain color to play up the backsplash design. After you have decided on the configuration layout, apply the individual boards to the wall using liquid nails adhesive. I can guarantee you a really authentic rustic look as well as a great wall texture.
