Why Install a Backsplash?

AAA Hellenic Marble & Tile - West Chester Granite CountertopsMany kitchens come with a kitchen in which the wall meets the countertop without a backsplash. If you aren’t familiar, a backslash is a vertical extension of the counter onto the wall, though they are not always the same material as the counter.

If you’re planning a kitchen remodel and aren’t sure about whether you’ll want to add a backsplash or not, consider these benefits:

  • A kitchen that stands out: Whether you’re having friends and family over or putting your house on the market, a kitchen with beautiful counters and a stylish backsplash will stand out and give your home a cohesive, upscale look.
  • Options: Adding a backsplash doesn’t mean you need the standard, 4-inch option. Many people choose to cover the entire wall space above their counters, stove and sink. A backsplash also allows you to personalize your space more, and can even brighten and change the look of your entire kitchen.
  • Protects from damage: The most common reason people choose to include a backsplash in their kitchen is because of the many spills and splatters than can ruin your wall over time. Around the sink, water splashes can create small stains. Near the stove, you run the risk of splattered food and tough grease. On the counter, you may even have food fall behind spaces between the counter and wall, potentially attracting critters and smells. A backsplash can prevent all of those situations, and is an easier surface to clean, without worrying about ruining paint!
