The primary and most important purpose of a backsplash is to prevent water spills from causing damage to the wall behind a sink. A secondary purpose is to make it easier to clean up: wet spills around a sink or greasy splashes around a stove, for example. Lastly, the backsplash can enhance the look of a room by complimenting the overall decor. While there are vast ceramic wall covering options designed for this specific purpose, other materials that can be used successfully. Self-adhesive vinyl tiles, for example, are relatively easy to use and clean up easily. Faux metallic “peel and stick” rolls are also available for this use and will give a vintage feel to your space. Alternatively, instead of covering the entire area (from cabinet bottom to countertop), you may wish to consider a shallower backsplash solution.
