Let’s face it-kitchen work areas do get messy. As things get spilled or splattered on the counters, clean up is relatively easy. But when those splashes reach the wall behind, it can mean getting the paint can out again! Many kitchens have a 4″-high backsplash typically made of the same material as the countertops or tile. Extending the backsplash all the way to the bottom of the upper cabinets is not only attractive, you won’t be stuck scrubbing or re-painting walls above short backsplashes.
