How To Decide What To Use For Your Linwood Kitchen Backsplash
Are you going to be redesigning your kitchen in the near future?
Is your Linwood kitchen stuck in the past and it needs a facelift? Many kitchens designed in the past 5 decades were outfitted with old fashioned kitchen linoleum floor covering or laminate flooring and poorly finished hardwood flooring. It was not customary in most parts of the country to use environmentally friendly flooring like bamboo flooring, sustainable wood flooring, click lock linoleum flooring, or cork flooring.
What sort of countertop is in place in your Linwood house?
Are you working with a granite or paperstone countertop or something so crazy it is actually unidentifiable?
What are we working with for kitchen cabinets?
Do you have solid Oak cabinets with a dated stain, modern cabinets or IKEA cabinets? Some of these cabinets were built in Linwood with reusable materials which can be sanded and painted, some work well with materials which may be in place including wood floor covering and linoleum floor covering. If this is the case, you may decide to not refinish them.
Inventory what is in place, decide what needs to stay and what needs to be refinished and then it is time to design the kitchen backsplash.
Sometimes you will have an existing Linwood kitchen backsplash which needs to be demolished prior to installing your new backsplash. Consider the work that is involved in doing that when you plan your backsplash installation project.
