Backsplashes are a very personal matter. You see them from the minute you wake up for your coffee and all the way through the day to those late-night kitchen raids. It has to look good. It can’t be too in-your-face or you’ll quickly tire of it. Yet, if it’s too bland, you’ll wonder why you didn’t have the courage to choose something with more style.
To make the decision even more complex, the look is just one factor in choosing a backsplash. With that in mind, the following list rates several of the top backsplash materials in five different categories (1 is worst; 5 is best):
- Ease of DIY installation
- Style (in terms of timelessness, or how soon it will look outdated)
The final category, Functionality, considers how well the materials do what they’re supposed to do: protect walls against splashes along primary counters and splatters behind stoves.
Here’s a list of kitchen backsplash materials with all the comparisons you’ll need to make the best choice.
