Modern home design is serious about one thing: Full backsplash is in. The new trend is to have solid slab backsplashes in your kitchen, which can be found almost ubiquitously in new luxury homes.

The best part is? Getting a solid backsplash for your kitchen can have many incredible benefits. At Loudoun Granite, we have installed state-of-the-art slab backsplashes in many kitchens in the DMV area. Let us share some of the reasons why you need one too.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Slab Backsplash in Your Kitchen

They Are Very Low Maintenance

Quartz, and granite (some marble) slab backsplashes are all much more durable than any tile. If you’re concerned about your kitchen’s longevity, then one of the best things you can do is invest in a solid slab backsplash. Especially if it’s quartz.

Tile backsplashes tend to chip, crack, and stain. A stone backsplash will require little to no maintenance over the years. So, although the initial investment for a stone backsplash will be slightly higher, you can count on your stone to last much longer than any tile would.

They Will Give Your Kitchen a Seamless Look

Few things look nicer than the illusion of a never-ending slab of quartz or granite. Having a solid slab backsplash will give your kitchen a sleek and modern look, which will also help you streamline the design as the countertops perfectly match the backsplash.

At Loudoun Granite, we offer much more than just granite. Whether you’re looking for the versatility of quartz, the durability of granite, or the sleekness of marble, we have what you’re looking for. You can browse our stones for a better idea of what matching countertops and a slab backsplash could look like in your kitchen.

Slabs Make Kitchens Look Bigger

If you don’t have the biggest kitchen, then having a solid slab backsplash will help create the illusion of a bigger space. Mixing different colors and materials can quickly make any space look crowded, so having a solid backsplash will reduce the colors and materials used in your kitchen’s hardware.

Create a Focal Point in Your Kitchen

All good design revolves around a focal point. If you’re looking to wow your guests, then a slab backsplash will help you achieve just that. The simple elegance of quartz or marble will become the new focal point of your kitchen, helping it stand out in all the right way.

Slabs Are Easier to Clean Than Tile

A tile or plasterboard can be very hard to clean. If you happen to get any sauces or oil on it when cooking, you’re likely going to have a very hard time cleaning it up. No more spending hours scrubbing your tile grout. Quartz or granite will be much easier to clean and will save you time with everyday cleaning.
