Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
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.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
