Backsplashes are the decorative focal point of your kitchen, adding visual flair, exuding personal style, and setting teh mood for the heart of your home.

But backsplashes started out life as purely functional; installed as a way to protect the wall over the stove or sink from splashes of wter, grease,a nd food spatter. Originally, they were only 4 inches tall for this utilitarian purpose and were made of inexpensive ceramic tile.

Today, backsplash materials can be ceramic tile, glass tile, natural stone, even metal.

Choosing what works for you will depend on budget, ease of maintenance, and your style.
