In kitchen design, one important element to consider is the backsplash. More than an opportunity for visual interest, the backsplash has an important job to do, preventing water from the sink from splashing back onto your walls (hence the name) and causing water damage. We at Stainless Outfitters Inc. want to help you create the ideal kitchen from both a design and functional standpoint, and in this article, we’ll go over some of the benefits of steel backsplashes on both accounts.
- Affordable- Because the sleekness of stainless steel can be used to create so many striking effects, some people are under the impression that it must be expensive. In reality, steel backsplashes are more affordable than many of their alternatives, particularly the popular stone backsplashes. Our team at Stainless Outfitters Inc. can design the perfect backsplash to take your kitchen design to the next level while still fitting well within your budget.
- Durable – One of the advantages of stainless steel for any application is its durability. When it comes to backsplashes, steel is an excellent choice due to both its incredible strength and to its resistance to mold. Hot, humid areas such as the kitchen sink or stovetop are common sites of mold damage, but with a steel backsplash you won’t have to worry about it.
- Clean- At Stainless Outfitters Inc., many of our clients choose stainless steel for its sleek appearance and clean, elegant lines. On top of being clean from a design standpoint, it’s also clean from a hygienic one, as stainless steel resists mold and other pathogens. This quality is a big part of why stainless steel is so popular in the restaurant industry. While stainless steel does occasionally develop some dirt spots, they are easily wiped away with a rag and some warm water.
