What is a Kitchen Backsplash?

The main purpose of a backsplash is to provide walls with a protective cover in the event of food or water splashing.  Although it may have a specific function, a kitchen backsplash is usually looked at as an aesthetic component to a counter.  The majority of backsplashes are created out of tiles, but there are dozens of other materials that can help to update the look of your Colorado Springs kitchen remodeling project.

The General Style of a Backsplash

When backsplashes were first used in kitchens and bathrooms, home owners would use the same material as the countertop for the extension of the backsplash.  As time has progressed and styles have become more modernized, homeowners have begun to use other materials such as granite, stainless steel, and tile.  When selecting a general style of backsplash it is important to consider what elements are sufficient options for your kitchen and this can be decided with the help of your installer.
