What is a Backsplash?

BacksplashA backsplash refers to the material used to cover the area of wall between a kitchen counter top and the upper cabinets. This detail of a kitchen is an opportunity for homeowners to express themselves through a variety of textures, colors and materials. The most important feature of a backsplash is that it must be resistant to the substances that could be splashed on it in order for it to look good and be effective. This is an area of home décor where functionality and visual appeal must come together.

The most common backsplash material is tile. By incorporating ceramic tile, one has an infinite number of combinations in colors and patterns to detail their kitchen with. Many enjoy the benefits of incorporating ceramic tile as a backsplash because it is durable and easily cleaned. Recently, the popularity of alternative backsplashes has risen as more homeowners begin to realize the decorative potential for self expression available to them through the incorporation of different materials to cover this area. Natural stone has proven to be a superior choice that offers water, grease and fire resistance. The use of stainless steel as a backsplash covering is another popular alternative.
