A kitchen can look finished without a backsplash and sometimes a clean coat of (washable) paint is what best executes a design. But at the same time there’s also an opportunity to use the space to anchor the overall design of the room.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous however which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
Stainless steel has been the presiding choice for new kitchens often replacing old white appliances that looked dated. Though it’s hard to imagine such sharp stainless steel appliances falling out of fashion they could very well go out of style in the future. In a 2010 study by Consumer Reports some kitchen experts said that the stainless steel reign was coming to an end. And what will replace it? Likely reimagined updated white appliances. For example a glass-like polished enamel that is modern and reflects light.
