Wood is a timeless material, which is widely used in architecture and decor – all kinds of it and plywood, too! Wood never goes out of style and matches all kinds of styles and color schemes – what can be more perfect? Wooden staircases, furniture, statement walls, accessories are used everywhere and everybody got used to them already but designers started including one more, very fresh and unique idea – wood for backsplashes. Yes, I know what you’ll say: wood and plywood aren’t the best idea for bathrooms and kitchens due to humidity and splashes and grease of different kinds. But modern finishes and types of plywood are such that you can not worry about it much.
Wooden kitchen backsplashes are a chic and very creative idea to rock, it’s a fantastic way to stand out with the backsplash and create an amazing look. Wood and plywood of all kinds are welcome for decorating the kitchen and if you still care about the practical side of it – add a glass or acrylic screen on the whole length or in the cooking zone. Let me share some ideas to inspire you.
Sleek Wooden Backsplashes
Sleek wood or plywood backsplashes immediately give your kitchen a more fresh and contemporary look while adding warmth with its look. There are a lot of ideas for textures, shades and looks, and such backsplashes are ideal for contemporary and minimalist spaces but you may actually go for rustic and glam kitchens, too, and add a sleek wooden backsplash for a contrast. Add additional lights into the cabinets and go for a matching countertop or make it different for a more contrasting look. If you care much about functionality, cover the whole backsplash or its part with a glass screen.
Textural Wooden Backsplashes
If you wanna add a texture and a unique touch to the space, go for a textural wooden backsplash. It can be a backsplash of reclaimed or aged wood, just some vertical or horizontal wood planks or just some wood clad in a pattern, for example, chevron. You may go for such a look not only for rustic, chalet, vintage and shabby chic kitchens but also for many others, too. Rock a modern kitchen with such a backsplash for a contrast! Still care much about splashes? Use wood-looking tiles instead of real wood, and voila!
