Stainless Steel Most people are after matching stainless steel appliances in their kitchen. Why? Because they look sharp and are central to a modern updated design. Using stainless steel as the backsplash–either with tiles or a solid sheet–is a continuation of that same feel and creates a sleek uniform look. The material is easy to wipe clean doesn’t require grout and will last forever.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
A kitchen can look finished without a backsplash and sometimes a clean coat of (washable) paint is what best executes a design. But at the same time there’s also an opportunity to use the space to anchor the overall design of the room.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous however which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
