A Backsplash is a vertical panel installed above the frontage of a countertop. It has three essential functions. First, it serves to protect the wall from splatters and blocks spills and drips from seeping behind the cabinet. It helps keep both surfaces clean and dry, which, in turn, prevents mold from growing inside your kitchen.
If you are on a budget, cost is quite important. Doing it yourself can cost you a lot more than sticking to your budget and hiring a professional to do the job. This is especially true if you have never completed a job like this before. Even the best books that are designed to show you how won't prepare you for the possible problems that can occur when you really aren't as familiar with the task as you should be when completing such a job.
Often an overlooked feature, the Edge Profile is a subtle detail which makes a huge statement. It is a design element which affects the appearance and functionality of the countertop, as well as the whole kitchen itself.
You can build your kitchen from various materials. SAM's or Home Depot can carry materials for new counters. They have a varieties such as marble, which is always a little more expensive, wood and other materials hand crafted steel. With these available materials you can build up a nice kitchen fairly inexpensive. Steel may not always be a good choice because it can absorb the heat of pans and other hot objects placed on them. This can be potentially dangerous you are cooking and others are in the kitchen at the same time. If you choose steel, it needs to be a thin layer so the heat will dissipate fast.
Planning the location of the sink, the stove top, and, even the wall outlets is a must, as well. Employ the concept of the Work Triangle to ensure you can move freely between each workstation of the kitchen. Once finalized, the installer identifies the position of the Cutouts based on your decision.
During layout and design, it is important to note that a depth of at least 0.60 meters is required for the countertop's frontage to function efficiently. This figure ensures, too, that there is a sufficient area to work on while allowing enough space to accommodate the sink, the stove top, and some other small kitchen accessories.
Hence, it is highly necessary for wooden cabinets and frame bases to have a substrate which supports the stone slab underneath. The underlay prevents cracks and fissures from occurring, especially around the cutouts.
