A kitchen is a sacred place in the home. It is where you share in the joy of creating meals for yourself and your family, where creativity comes alive, and for some, where loved ones gather to share stories of their lives every night or on precious holidays. Because of the kitchen's significance in your life, you should find peace and comfort in this room. Part of what creates this sentiment is having an aesthetic that speaks to your personality and the general mood you intend to inspire. One specific element at the core of this aesthetic is the backsplash.
