When designing or remodeling your kitchen, the backsplash can sometimes be an oversight. What many don’t realize is that
Kitchen backsplashes do serve a purpose other than creating a beautiful kitchen aesthetic. Originally kitchen backsplashes were solely installed for functional purposes instead of decorative. Designed to protect the walls from food and beverage splatter, they tended to measure just around 4 inches tall. Often they were only found behind the sink and stove areas for protection.
It’s safe to say that the kitchen backsplash has evolved over the years! Beginning as simply a protectant, they now serve as more of a statement piece.
