What Houzz contributors are saying:
11. Don’t crowd the cooker hoodWhen using a cooker hood, always leave at least seven centimetres between the furthest reaches of the cooker hood and the wall-mounted cabinets to the left and right. Visually, the cooker hood will not look cramped, and the sides of the cupboards will avoid being frequently splattered with food.Are hidden cooker hoods a new trend?
Approach 2: Select the backsplash firstOf course, if you happen to find a backsplash you absolutely love before you’ve even looked at countertops, I say go for it. Making this selection will absolutely help you narrow down the options for the countertop. If you go for a statement-making backsplash such as the one here, find a quiet, subtler countertop material so it doesn’t fight with the backsplash.Shown: Pietra del Cardoso stone counter; mosaic glass tile backsplashThe low-down on the top 10 backsplash materials
2. They can quickly go out of styleLong-term resale value is questionable when it comes to glass mosaics. Colours and patterns that are in style now probably won’t be in five or 10 years, not to mention that glass mosaics themselves may not be either. Take into account your long-term plans. If you’re not living in your forever home right now, you may want to play it safe with natural stone.
