What is a Backsplash?
A backsplash is a portion of wall in your kitchen or bathroom that’s waterproof or water resistant. Its purpose is to protect the wall from water or oil splashes that can often occur while you cook or wash your hands. Some backsplashes are a solid color or simple design, while others feature intricate mosaic designs. You can install a small one directly behind a sink, or let it extend around the room over your counters.
The most common material for backsplashes is tile. Even within this category, there are tons of options. Some of the most popular materials include ceramic, granite, glass and travertine. When finished with a glaze, these materials are very durable and easy to wipe clean. Check out the photos on this page to see some of our past tile backsplash projects.
Other Backsplash Materials
Backsplashes aren’t only made from tile. Exposed brick offers a rustic look that’s perfect in a modern home. Tin and copper backsplashes are also popular. Some of these styles are self-adhesive, which makes the installation a breeze. Keep in mind that some less expensive backslash options won’t last or add value to your home in the way that a tile backsplash can.
