Beadboard Backsplash


We are remodeling an old cottage that had beadboard as a backsplash in the kitchen. The old countertop was simply a flat surface with the beadboard running all the way down to the counter and up to the underside of the cabinets. After scrapping the old beadboard in the remodel, I want to put it back in, but not sure how I really want to install it. Should I install the bead board first and then place the counter agains it (as it was done origianlly) are place my counter on the cabinets first and then install the beadboard. Either way, I am going to have to caulk and paint well to keep water from harming the beadboard, but the original had been there since the 20's and wasn't in too bad of shape. Any thoughts?

I would install your counters first and then the beadboard.

Here is a kitchen I recently finished with a beadboard backsplash:

I would use a solid tongue & groove beadboard as opposed to the plywood versions. Use construction adhesive and finish nails, and paint it before you install. Caulk with a siliconized acrylic clear caulk to seal at the counter.

I would have to agree with this. Walls are never straight so by putting the bead board in after you may not have to scribe the counter top to much.

I put my beadboard backsplash in first...

Man that's a nice kitchen... mine looks very similar with the backsplash, hardwood floors, and cabinet style...

However, I have laminate...maybe someday, i will tear that out and get some granite

That kitchen looks great, and thanks for the response. Can you tell me the thickness of the tongue and groove beadboard you used? Also, did you use any type of trip where the backsplash meets the counter?

Thanks all for the compliments.

The floor in that kitchen was ebony stained red oak, quartered & rift. The oak was "water popped" before the stain was applied.

The T&G backsplash was about 3/8" to 1/2" thick--I can't remember the exact dimension. The penninsula has similar beadboard panels. The panels consisted of the beadboard strips nailed to a plywood backing. We stripped the beadboard off the plywood and applied it directly to the wall. This saved us having to paint match to the cabinets since they came directly from the factory. My lumber yard carries the same T&G beadboard in poplar.

The beadboard comes directly down to the counter, with a slight gap for caulk...We used a silonized acrylic caulk to seal the joint.

Popping the wood grain on wood flooring after sanding.

Wipe floor with water ( damp rag) not too heavy. Wood grain swells will take stain deeper and reflect light differently. ( side benefit, it may erase tiny sanding blemishes) Flooring contractors may offer as an option as you select and approve stain sample on your new or refinished wood floor.

looking good....understood that end user satisfaction and limited space may dictate limited work space... A+ ... hope the final check was from a happy camper... thanks for the up date.

What was the under cab lighting? looks a bit heavy on the wall wash... maybe it was just the photo.

Good job!
