Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up, especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
Certain types of marble, such as the Emperador which comes from Spain, are ideal for high-traffic areas and fireplace surrounds. Still, their unique color tones can also be used to give a kitchen backsplash a stand-out look. This particular type has grains with irregular veins which makes each tile unique and offers the opportunity to create interesting patterns.
A design that would suit well a contemporary kitchen is this one. It’s simple, abstract and versatile enough to look wonderful in a variety of settings. The fact that it matches the countertop helps with the cohesion of the décor.
