Kitchen designers consider a few things when deciding what materials to use for their client’s kitchen. There’s wood, granite, marble, or laminate. Then there’s onyx, prized for its durability and versatility. This material can be used to design countertops, floors, walls, and even tubs. But do we have backsplash ideas for onyx countertops?
Can I Use onyx as Backsplash
onyx is the trend. People are looking for onyx countertops. Designers are suggesting this material to their clients. Modern kitchens and bathrooms feature onyx surfaces. But is it good for backsplashes? short answer is YES.
Stone tiles for backsplashes are becoming outdated. Slabs and sheets are now being used because they provide a continuous surface that looks neat and modern. Installation of large slabs on a wall means fewer seams and breaks. Large sheets covering a wall offer more protection from moisture. But let’s talk about why onyx as a material is gaining popularity.
Onyx is non-porous. Meaning, it has no tiny holes that hold dirt and moisture. Hence, stains don’t soak below the surface to become permanent ugly splotches. Onyx doesn’t require sealing but is easy to clean and maintain.
But onyx backsplashes and countertops are expensive!
That depends on your definition of expensive. Homeowners who have chosen onyx agree that the material is priced reasonably. For its cost, you’re getting an aesthetically pleasing and durable design that can last for years.
Anyone who’s wondering what sets onyx backsplashes apart from other types of backsplashes needs to see how natural stone fits into sleek and arresting interiors. In most cases, it’s not the material, It’s how you make a cohesive theme with a onyx backsplash. And it’s our job to make it work.
Create a sense of movement in the kitchen
Many clients love symmetry, and onyx slab on the backsplash creates that balance in your kitchen. A backsplash that complements a range hood creates a focal point in the kitchen that’s hard to ignore. The trick here is to choose a color that goes well with the colors of the wall, floor, countertops, and cabinets. It takes a skilled designer with an eye for art to come up with a show-stealing backsplash. Imagine a black range hood and a marble-esque onyx backsplash making your kitchen look posh.
A onyx backsplash adds definition to the wall behind the sink or range.
Countertops and backsplashes should have coordinating colors and designs for a cohesive design. Countertops are the first thing guests notice when they enter a kitchen. The next thing they notice is the backsplash, and a kitchen looks ridiculous if these two things don’t match.
Seasoned kitchen designers know which backsplash color and material go well with a countertop, and we’ve seen backsplashes and countertops sharing the same material, hence evoking a sense of cohesion. For instance, Cambria has a number of onyx backsplash adds definition to the wall behind the sink or range. slabs whose designs feature flowing rivers of gray on a white background, drawing the eye of an observer from one end of the backsplash to another and then to the countertops. This fluidity evokes tranquility, perhaps an element a busy kitchen needs.
Not to mention, single-stone themes make for tidy spaces that allow incorporation of a mini bar or a work table in the kitchen.
Make the backsplash part of a feature wall
Many onyx sheets and slabs lend themselves to dramatic designs, such as a backsplash that’s integrated into a wall, creating a sense of continuity. A light gray feature wall with streams of dark gray veins is like a focal point in the kitchen that holds black cabinets and a metallic range hood together. Cambria onyx slabs are perfect for such layouts. But be sure to consult a professional when deciding to have a backsplash that goes right to the ceiling.
Complementary designs for onyx backsplashes and worktops are suggested to avoid discordant combinations. But a contrasting backsplash design can complement a low-key onyx countertop and draw attention on itself. Contemporary backsplash ideas for onyx countertops include bold patterns, which are trendy. These arresting designs are show-stealers and are definitely made for statement walls.
