Adding a backsplash to a kitchen or bathroom can dramatically change the overall look of the room while adding value to the home. This simple addition is an easy, cost effective solution to updating a kitchen or bathroom on a budget. Backsplashes are not only aesthetically pleasing but can serve to protect walls from water, grease or toothpaste residue behind sinks or in areas where water is present. Cleaning and upkeeping a backsplash is much simpler than paint as well, meaning any food that splashes up when cooking is easily wiped. Anyone who has cleaned pasta sauce off of paint knows what a benefit this can be!
