The primary function of a backsplash is, of course, to make wall surfaces around sinks, stoves, and work areas easy to clean and to protect the walls. But why not make a backsplash beautiful as well as functional? Many people have asked that question and created backsplash areas that have become the focal point of the room design. Whether you choose tile, stone, cultured stone, metal, laminate, or glass, you can do the work yourself quite easily and create something unique and attractive in your kitchen or bathroom.
