A backsplash is a section of material added onto the wall behind a sink or a counter, usually in a kitchen. Tiles are not the only , but one of the most common types of backsplash materials. The main purpose of kitchen backsplashes is to provide an easy-to-clean surface so that messes or splashes such as spattering cooking oil won't mark painted walls or wall paper. Backsplashes can also add great style and color to a kitchen. For an easier cleaning and a more modern look, we recommend you a full marble or granite backsplashes.
