A backsplash can enhance your kitchen’s style and give it an elegant look. With so many material choices available for kitchen backsplashes, choosing a material can sometimes be difficult. The most important thing to remember is its function: a backsplash is there to protect your kitchen walls with a splatter-proof surface.

Some of the most popular backsplash materials include:

GRANITE
Granite is a very beautiful and durable material that is great for kitchen backsplashes. The downside to granite is that it must be resealed twice a year to maintain protection from moisture.

MARBLE
Marble is a very attractive and low-maintenance material used for backsplashes and is actually porous enough that it absorbs grease and dirt.

CERAMIC TILE
Ceramic tile comes in a vast array of colors, textures and finishes. It is also easy to clean and very durable. The downside to ceramic tile is that the grout must be regularly cleaned and resealed. No matter which material you are considering for your kitchen backsplash, make sure it is easy to clean and durable.
