“If you’re searching for a surface that will be like a piece of art and a real showstopper, consider a solid slab backsplash,” said Normandy Designer Liz Reifschneider.

“A slab of quartz, quartzite or marble creates a really clean aesthetic that’s perfect for a more contemporary kitchen,”Liz explains, adding, “It’s luxurious and produces a cohesive look that’s really appealing.”

Beyond striking good looks, a slab backsplash can be easier to keep clean. Without the crevices of tile and grout, which is where stains tend to happen, you can keep most seamless backsplashes looking great with a spray and wipe.

As with many luxury items, a slab backsplash is a more expensive selection than tile.Kitchen with slab backsplash, hammered metal range hood and open shelving “Stone is one of the big investments in a kitchen and it’s not less expensive if it goes on the wall instead of the counter,” said Liz. For a look that’s modern and timeless, there’s nothing quite like it. Your designer can help you work through the best way to incorporate a slab backsplash into your kitchen.
