Often an afterthought, or worse overlooked, the right backsplash catches more than just moisture. And so, protect and serve with splatter-ready surfaces that also capture inquiring glances. Go for graphics with ceramic tiles in undulating patterns reminiscent of minerals. Bring the sparkle with glass: translucent or colorful, rippling or smooth. But above all, make it multidimensional, with tactile treatments borrowed from surf and sand.
