You Can’t Take Your Backsplash with You – Or Can You? – Wait, What?

With open floor plans in many houses, kitchens are no longer separate rooms but part of the overall living space. The kitchen has become the main focal point and trends in kitchens are constantly monitored by designers, remodelers and of course homeowners. Space in the kitchens are now used for multitasking such as entertaining, cooking and eating. You will also find kids doing homework, playing games and watching TV. Did you know that you can now change out your backsplash seasonally or even take it with you?

Change Out Your Backsplash Seasonally or Take it With You!

Smart technology is also very popular in kitchens. Now there are cameras built into ovens to identify the type of food and to set cooking times and temperatures. Refrigerators have screens that can tell you call kinds of things about the food that is in your refrigerator. One of the newest technology is the ability to change out your back splash seasonally. You can even take it with you when you sell your house.

OK you might be asking yourself, did I read that correctly? Yes, a new concept is to print art / photography on backsplashes and install it in a way that you can change it out easily. Art and functionality have merged in the kitchen not only do you have a functional backsplash, your backsplash can be backlit and seamless. The images are printed directly on the glass with sizes over 10 feet long and 7 feet wide, which means that you can easily clean your backsplash with your everyday glass cleaner. You can also pick just about any image and have it printed directly on the glass.

If you backlight your backsplash and you are into smart technology you can control the backlights and dim them manually or put them on a schedule to dim and brighten them throughout the day. It is amazing how dimming / brightening the light can change the mood of the entire room.  This technology is often referred to as Architectural Digital Glass

We all know that design trends are constantly changing and you might just want to change things up. Why not change out your backsplash with a different image. Just as seasons change so can your backsplash.

When talking about changing out your backsplash, I am not necessarily taking about your entire backsplash but rather the backsplash on an accent wall or the accent piece over the stove. Of course if you have money to spare, you can always change out the entire backsplash for each season relatively easy without the need to hire a remodeler. In fact you can typically change it out in less than an hour.
