Faux Brick Backsplash

One of the most overlooked areas of kitchen design is the lowly backsplash. While its job is to protect your kitchen walls from the never-ending assault of kitchen splatters, there’s no reason it can’t look good, too.

That’s one of the reasons the brick backsplash is making yet another comeback. The rugged appearance and slightly irregular grout lines work well with most home designs and styles.

Whether you live in a craftsman, a rambler, modern, or mid-century styled home, nothing adds historical character or charm quite like brick.

The biggest problem with a brick backsplash, is the cost. 

The brick material is expensive to begin with. Real brick is dense and heavy, and difficult to transport and handle. Then you will also need the services of a qualified mason, with all the proper tools and skills.

That translates into high costs for the installation labor too. Then we can’t forget about the dust and noise during the course of the project.
