Why Backsplash Is Must for a Low-Maintenance Kitchen:
12/18/2018

Kitchens can be a mess. We all know it. From small gaps between tiles to the nasty oil stains and discoloration, the list of possible damages is endless. To make the kitchen functional, look attractive and clean, adding a backsplash is the easiest and the most inexpensive solution.

Why your Kitchen needs maintenance? 

The kitchen is the breeding house for diseases if not created and maintained properly. The heat, the moisture and various environmental components usually contribute to microorganism growth.

This can pose a serious health threat, increasingly so for families with both infants and toddlers as their immune system is not strong and they tend to expose themselves unknowingly leading to detrimental side effects. This could lead to both infections and autoimmune conditions.

Backsplashes are better than wallpapers and paint 

Paint and wallpapers are porous materials.

  • Wallpaper, much like normal paper, contains starch and fibers. In case of a microorganism infestation, the organisms can easily start breaking down this starch and can keep multiplying in the grooves and crannies of the paper fibers.
  • Paint, on the other hand contains a lot of harmful substances. The kitchen if painted becomes non-functional for days until it dries and the smell of the paint has worn off. Moreover, the smell dispenses in the air and your entire house could smell like paint.

Backsplashes, on the other hand are made of solid materials which impedes microorganism growth. It reduces the chances of microorganism growth and therefore a better solution than either of the options mentioned above for a low-maintenance kitchen. Not to forget, they come in various colors and prints which adds an aesthetic touch to the interiors.

Well-designed kitchens can be budget friendly too 

For those who want low maintenance kitchens, investing in remodeling the kitchen is the best way to go. However, renovation of kitchen to make them low maintenance does not have to burn a hole in your pocket. Budget-friendly options to suit your needs are available in a variety of materials including tiles, marble and granite.

I actually hired Advantage Handyman to do all three of my bathrooms. I hired them because they were turn key and they could handle the enitre job. They gutted all three of my bathrooms and rebuilt them from the ground up using my design choices.

I was very impressed not only with work but the workers who were courteous, knowledgeable and willing to do the extra things to get the job done. The owner himself came out several times to check on the progress of the job and to make sure I was satisfied. This is a company it was a pleasure doing business with.

I had Advantage Handyman come visit to work on two of my bathrooms upstairs, they did such a great job, I had them come do my basement. First, we decided to hide the plumbing pipes by building out some benches along the windows.
