What are Kitchen Backsplashes?
Before we talk design, let’s bring it back to the basics. For homeowners who haven’t heard of a backsplash before, the term refers to a panel (often tile or stone) behind a sink or a stove that protects your walls from splashes. Backsplashes help protect your walls from water damage and make kitchen messes easier to clean. Backsplashes also serve as a design centerpiece in your home, as they often incorporate beautiful materials and patterns.
Popular Backsplash Designs
Backsplashes are highly customizable, but for those looking for a starting point, the following design styles are popular in the Freehold area:
