Big Bang for your Buck in Kitchen Backsplashes

Filed under: Of Interest to Buyers,Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 9:44 am

A backsplash in a kitchen is the area between the upper and lower cabinetry. Often times, we see a variety of backsplash materials, depending on how a home owner may choose to accent the design of a kitchen.

From granite, to tile, and from glass to mirrors, I have pretty much seen a wide variety of materials used to fill in the space between the upper and lower sets of cabinets in many o’ Philadelphia kitchens.  And I am often times asked to add my two cents into what might look good in this area. The options are numerous, but if you have stainless steel appliances, I would suggest you cover this area with a relatively inexpensive FORMICA (in stainless steel color). The stainless steel look that FORMICA offers is really amazing. You couldn’t tell the difference between this product, and real stainless steel.

SO WHY USE THIS PRODUCT?

It is not expensive, and it is fairly easy to have someone from Lowe’s or Home Depot install it for you.  But the thing I like best is the fact that unlike real stainless steel, FORMICA is not susceptible to fingerprints. And if you do happen to smudge the FORMICA backsplash, it wipes off very easily, and rarely streaks. Try saying the same about the front of your stainless steel refrigerator!

Is it stainless, or is it FORMICA? I dunno. No one else will know either.
