If you are craving the ultra-modern, hip, post-industrial look that is ever so popular in many large cities around the world, a stainless steel backsplash may just be the thing for you. Steel is relatively untraditional as a decorating material, but in recent years it has become very popular in a sleek, contemporary way. A stainless steel backsplash can add the touch of modern industrial flare to your loft, apartment, or home at very little cost to you.
The kitchen backsplash is placed on the kitchen wall between the countertops and the wall cabinets. It protects the walls and especially the zones behind the range, the sink, and the places where you prepare the food, from staining. Your backsplash will stain, but the materials appropriate for it are usually easy to clean and maintain and are a far better option than just a bare painted wall or wallpaper.
