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.
Mosaics and Focal Points The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
Stainless Steel Most people are after matching stainless steel appliances in their kitchen. Why? Because they look sharp and are central to a modern updated design. Using stainless steel as the backsplash–either with tiles or a solid sheet–is a continuation of that same feel and creates a sleek uniform look. The material is easy to wipe clean doesn’t require grout and will last forever.
