Metal Backsplash Requires Confidence
A metal backsplash sends a powerful message. You're not afraid to take chances. Typical non-metal backsplashes you could have chosen might be:
- ceramic tile
- painted drywall
- plastic laminate
It's important to realize there's no perfect backsplash material. Painted drywall is by far the easiest because it's on the wall by default. You don't need to add anything. If you coat the paint with two coats of clear water-based urethane you end up with a very durable and washable surface.

Another key point is the wall surface must be clean. Remodeling jobs in existing kitchens require you deep-clean the walls to remove all dirt and grease.
