Backsplashes serve to protect the wall behind the countertop from water damage and grease splatter. They used to be a simple continuation of the countertop surface, but are now a key design element when planning a kitchen remodel. There is a large variety of tile to use as your kitchen backsplash: ceramic, glass, natural stones, and metal. Other materials, such as quartz or marble, can be used, as well. Here is a list of 10 statement-making backsplashes to inspire you with your kitchen remodel:
