Design Inspiration: Add a Dash of Panache With a Backsplash

3 min read

A solid, natural stone backsplash is a striking way to insert some plush functionality into your kitchen or bathroom—and luckily, this look can be accomplished via a non-plush price. Available in a variety of finishes that resemble natural stone, quartz surfaces don’t require the hefty budget or tedious maintenance of other surfaces. As your partner in design, we have compiled a list of the many benefits of protective quartz wall panels, as well as a gallery of sample kitchens featuring unique backsplashes, providing some inspiration for your next renovation or building project.

Backsplash Benefits

Adding a backsplash is a simple way to elevate your kitchen or bathroom design, but it’s a practical addition as well. A quartz backsplash:

  • Adds equipoising character or seamlessly harmonizes with countertops and cabinets to achieve a look that is all your own, allowing you to express your personality and create a backdrop that becomes the focal point of a space
  • Hides unsightly gaps that may be present when the wall and countertop are not squarely flush
  • Prevents pest infiltration
  • Provides a barrier, protecting walls and wallpaper from:
    • Stain risk
    • Odor absorption
    • Water penetration
    • Mold and mildew threat
  • Is easy to clean, requiring only a mild detergent and microfiber cloth
