When home remodels take place, oftentimes a great deal of hassle is involved. Take a kitchen remodel, for example. If the countertops are going to be replaced, the current countertop must be completely removed in order for the measurements and fabrication of a new one. Once the fabrication takes place, the materials have to be ordered. This can take 1-2 weeks, and in the meantime one cannot use their countertops or sink area. Although it is considered a ‘first world problem’ by a landslide, it can be quite the hassle for a family to go without a kitchen for a couple weeks.
Countertops are only a small portion of what takes place during a kitchen remodel. People can also go without appliances during their replacement, have tape and drop cloths lining the room for a repainting project, and stone or brick combined with messy mortar in every crack and crevice during a backsplash project. Although this is a small price to pay when doing something as large as a kitchen renovation, it can still be quite the hassle for an average American to deal with.
So, how does one cut down on the hassle of a remodel project?
Why, with faux wall paneling of course.
While faux wall panels cannot be used for countertops, they can absolutely be used for a backsplash. In fact, this is one of their most common applications. By choosing faux brick or faux stone paneling for a kitchen backsplash, you will cut down on the overall hassle immensely. First of all, you will save a great deal of money. Second of all, you will not have to hire a contractor as the paneling is DIY. Third of all, there will be no associated mess of cutting bricks or pieces of stone, or messy mortar to deal with. As you are probably aware, a project with authentic brick or stone could take days or even up to a week to complete. Faux brick or faux stone application, however, only takes several hours.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, your faux wall paneled backsplash will last for years to come. The panels are made from a high quality polyurethane material, which is impervious to moisture. This is exactly what you want when dealing with a backsplash so no moisture gets into your kitchen walls. This means no mildew, no mold, and no rot!
