Kitchen Remodeling Chicago – Backsplash Idea
So you’re looking for some remodeling ideas for your next kitchen renovation? Perhaps all you are seeing in the design magazines is the same old ideas just configured differently. What you really want is something personal, something that is so unique that no one else could possible have the same thing. And it is really not a matter of money, is it? If you are considering a kitchen remodel then you know that it will be expensive no matter how much customization you do. Kitchens are, after all, the most expensive space in a house to renovate.
So many of the items that we own are so dear, so personal, that one hates to consider using them in the kitchen. If you have a collection of Lalique, for example, you certainly wouldn’t want to put your vase on your kitchen counter because the kids just might knock that $2800 vase over, even though it would certainly make a statement on your counters. And putting your collection behind glass doors doesn’t add the same impact or elevate your kitchen.
Here is an idea that might just fit your bill. This kitchen remodeling Chicago project has used original, handwritten family recipes instead of tile as a backsplash behind the cooktop. These recipes have been artistically arranged in a collage, applied to the wall, then protectively sealed behind a sheet of tempered glass. Tempered glass is easy to clean, you can see through it, won’t discolor and doesn’t have grout to clean. If it should break (although it’s hard to imagine anyone throwing a pan at such a wonderful addition to a kitchen) tempered glass does not break off into jagged pieces, it stays in one piece which is easily replaceable.
