What is a Kitchen Backsplash?
A kitchen backsplash is placed on the kitchen wall between the countertops and the wall cabinets. Backsplash is placed along the whole length of the room, thus achieving a unified look. It protects the walls and especially the
zones behind the range, the sink, and the places where you prepare the food, from staining. A backsplash will keep your kitchen clean and prevent stains, as it is easier to clean compared to a bare painted wall or wallpaper.
The kitchen backsplash also has great aesthetic value. With colors, patterns or textures appropriate for a backsplash you can improve the visual appeal of your kitchen, without difficulty and at a reasonable price. With a standard backsplash, about 18 in. high, you will cover the whole area between the countertops and the wall cabinets and you will give your kitchen a finished look.
Layout & Patterns
Backsplash options vary with different patterns and layouts. Straight, diagonal, accent and frame are just a few options. As you can see on the right, a combination of layouts are available. Different layouts will have different cost and pricing.
The listello option will embed an accent in your backsplash. A frame will create a spot of interest and focus in your kitchen. Choose a brick pattern for simplicity, or a listello for uniqueness and style! Get granite countertops!
