Splash board materials in the early years of splash board, more use of tiles, but with the evolution of decoration materials, designers can use more abundant layout elements, such as tiles, mosaics, high-pressure laminates, tempered glass So as to inject eye-catching focus into the overall space atmosphere.
1. Ceramic Tile
Ceramic tile is the most common splash board material, with rich styles, easy to match changes, and relatively cheap features; and because the surface belongs to bright glaze, it is not easy to absorb oil stains, and will not be dyed. However, the gap between the tiles will be a problem; if it is not cleaned in real-time, it is easy to get stuck. It is suggested that if you are worried that the gap will become dirty and dirty, you might as well stick a layer of transparent anti-oil sticker on the surface, or narrow the gap interval to achieve a visual seamless layout, which also helps to reduce oil contamination.
2. Toughened Glass
This should be the most popular splash board building material for designers; because in addition to fire and oil prevention, and there is no problem of gap fouling, a wipe of rags and paper towels can greatly solve the problems of the owners, and there are a variety of colors to choose from, which is easy to match the space style. Small reminder, if you plan to install partitions, shelves on the glass, you should seek professional master processing, cutting, to avoid glass fragmentation.
3. Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel is durable, is a major feature of stainless steel, and like tempered glass, are seamless materials, so cleaning is relatively easy, coupled with heat resistance, low price, and other advantages, the use of the situation is quite common; but it is not scratch resistant, the impact is also prone to dent, and with less variability.
4. Mosaic Tile
Mosaic tile is similar to the effect of ceramic tuke , even the disadvantages are the same; but because of its small size, the mosaic can have more changes in splicing and color matching, and design more patterns, which is conducive to creating the visual focus of space and creating a more significant effect of kitchen atmosphere. Tips: whether you choose stone, ceramic, or glass mosaic, it is recommended not to use white cement or putty to fill the joints, so as to avoid yellowing and affecting the overall appearance; you can use the seam agent to make the joints more flat, smooth and easy to clean.
5. Natural Stone
In order to create a light and luxurious atmosphere, some kitchens will be decorated with natural stone splash boards, such as marble and granite, and large pieces of stone can reduce the number of collages and naturally reduce the generation of cracks; however, small pores are distributed on the surface of natural stone, oil is easy to penetrate, so cleaning and maintenance need to be more painstaking.
