Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Today, the kitchen has become the central room of American homes. The average homeowner spends over 19 hours a week in their kitchen, and during a gathering of friends and family more time is spent in the kitchen than any other room.
The kitchen backsplash, although is one of the most visible focal points in a kitchen, it is an area that is often either overlooked or paid little attention from the design standpoint, and is left as the very final decision in the kitchen design process.
A kitchen backsplash not only serves as a surface protection to prevent the wall from staining but it is also a very prominent design element in the kitchen. It is sometimes the difference between a designed finished look and a regular off-the-catalog kitchen.
“Backsplash options are numerous out there in the market; I’ve seen options from very simple ceramic subway tile, to custom designs in water-jet or custom forged metal inserts that can get very pricy” said Sandra Ghaoui, President of Gnosis.
Since its inception, Gnosis has worked on creating stone mosaic backsplash options that give that area the attention it deserves. The company now offers a range of configurations and prices that can accommodate most American kitchens.
“What we have accomplished is a series of mosaic options that allow the backsplash to become an integral component of the visual design of the kitchen, accommodating most budgets ranging from mosaic accents starting at only a few hundred dollars, to complete custom stone mosaic wall coverings,” Sandra said. “The point is that when you consider your budget and your kitchen design, there is always something beautiful we can propose as our mosaics can be used in combination with other materials. In fact, some of the best backsplash designs we have made, in my view are not always the biggest budget ones.”
Some stone mosaic backsplash options offered by Gnosis are presented in their online Kitchen Gallery. Nevertheless, all of Gnosis mosaic designs can be used as a backsplash, so they encourage you to be creative.
