Mandy from A Beautiful Mess shared a helpful tutorial for an inexpensive plank backsplash. Not only does it add unique, classic style to your kitchen (love those horizontal wooden planks!), it‘s affordable too:
Not All Modern! The beauty of adding wooden surfaces to the modern kitchen goes beyond mere textural contrast. It allows you to blend two different styles and add a hint of rustic, farmhouse, traditional or even industrial panache to the stylish, contemporary kitchen. While wood does a great job of lending that natural, rustic appeal, marble acts as a balancing element by elevating the &‘sophistication&‘ of the kitchen with its polished finish.
There are containers that slide in and out to make cooking fast and easy; made out of light bamboo, the piece is built for double-sided use. There are three sizes available: Mono, Mini and Phoenix, which are great for various kitchen sizes; it is easy to take it outdoors to cook for a barbecue with friends or have it handy for picnics.
