Although it may not seem incredibly important, the backsplash in a kitchen actually serves a very crucial role. As the name suggests, the backsplash is there to help prevent any splatter from cooking for food prep from getting onto the wall and staining it. Instead, the stain-resistant kitchen backsplash is able to be easily wiped clean when food splatter does occur.

With it serving such an important function, it is vital that you choose the best backsplash for your kitchen renovation. That’s why we have provided you with a list of a few of the best backsplash materials.

Ceramic/Porcelain

By using ceramic or porcelain tile, you have an incredible amount of versatility thanks to the fact that they can mimic either natural stone or traditional tiles by using strategic color and style mixes. And by being very water-resistant, ceramic and porcelain tile is a great choice for its cheap price.

Glass

Something that has become increasingly popular in the last few years is the addition of glass tile as a kitchen backsplash. Since they are non-porous, they never have to be sealed and can continue to look brand new for many years. Glass tile will also be able to help reflect light, which means that it will be able to brighten up the kitchen space.

Travertine

This type of tile is specifically useful for creating an older style, which can be very gorgeous if done correctly. Since travertine is natural and a much lighter choice than other stone options, it provides a very distinctive style that many homeowners love. It also has the benefit of being incredibly easy to install.
