This is the perfect example of Form + Function. Backsplashes don’t just provide style but also protect walls from water damage, spills, and stains. If allowed to hide behind surfaces, moisture creates mold and mildew, which wreaks havoc on your home, and if food debris and stains aren’t cleaned up, they'll attract pests. There's no place for dirt or particles to hide with tile, so wipe them with a damp cloth and mild cleaner and be sure to seal the grout.
While backsplashes can be created from many materials, tile is still the preferred option. We’re all familiar with the subway tile backsplash, but some may remember it only as those glassy all-white 3 X 6 rectangles. What many don’t realize, however, is that subway tiles now come in a broad color palette and all shapes and sizes. We see everything from blue, green, and black hues to metallics and multi-colors. Tiles are often textured with beveled, pebbled, beach sand, and stacked looks, as well as with patterns such as herringbones, graphics, and encaustics. They often also include medallions and inserts.
