The backsplash is the wall surface between the countertop and the bottom of the wall cabinets. This is a great space to have some fun in your kitchen design by showing off your personal style with color, patterns, and textures. What is a kitchen backsplash?

The standard backsplash is 18 inches tall, but a full-height backsplash has been popular for a few years now in NYC kitchen design. The trend only continues and is turning into more of an NYC kitchen remodel staple. The varying ways to create this stylish backsplash are endless in the imagination.

Full-height backsplashes, also known as slab or panel backsplashes, begin at the countertop and reach at least to the bottom of the upper cabinets but can also go to the ceiling. (Surface1.com) The most popular backsplash choice is tile – which comes in a huge variety of sizes, colors, textures, and shapes. Because of the versatility, you can go with a uniform design or mix and match to make a mosaic backsplash.

How to style a backsplash

Other materials you can use for a full height backsplash are wallpaper, stone, and glass. Wallpaper is a very simple solution to covering the most surface area, but it does come with the slight downside of being a bit more difficult to clean.
