Concrete Countertop Backsplashes
There are a variety of options for concrete countertop backsplashes. Backsplashes can be cast to match the countertop exactly, or different color patterns, designs, shapes, or materials can be used. Vertical concrete overlays can even cover up old tile backsplashes.
Traditional tile backsplashes can still be used with concrete countertops, but using concrete for both usually creates a more cohesive look. Many people have also used colored glass tiles as a backsplash that coordinate with the color of their concrete countertop.
