Backsplashes are a great addition to kitchens, being both functional and fashionable. Before we show you some unique backsplash ideas, let’s talk about why a backsplash is needed in the first place, and some tips to choose which is best for you.
So why do you need a backsplash?
Backsplashes can help save hassle in the future by protecting your walls from food, water, and grease.

Contrasting materials and colours can make for an exciting feature in your kitchen. There are so many material options ranging from tile, to brushed stainless steel, to brass.

Now that you know what purpose a backsplash serves and how to choose, let’s share some exciting ways people have incorporated backsplashes into their kitchens:
