Backsplash School (4): What is Full Height Kitchen Backsplash?
In kitchen remodeling, the full height kitchen backsplash is also known as a full-height backsplash and full backsplash. The area between the countertop and wall cabinets is covered by a full high backsplash. Designers would love to make some extensions up the wall to the bottom of the overhead fan or microwave.
Full high backsplash can be picked for picky homeowners who like squeaky clean kitchens. No grout lines for tile means a smooth surface, easy to clean. It’s hard to beat gorgeous and easy to maintain and clean all in one choice. Designers would like to provide luxury and ergonomic usage together while choosing one piece of material. Materials usually give a smooth, accentuated look and positive energy to the kitchen.
The second reason would be high power protection. Backsplashes offer a protective layer, preventing walls from moisture damage and staining – particularly behind the stovetop. If you cook regularly, consider using a full-height splash in that area.
