Simple bright white "subway" tile is a good choice for this space. It is a neutral background for everyday essentials.
The word “backsplash” has become synonymous with renovating, remodeling or creating a new kitchen. It is part of the essential elements of the design. In fact, it can become the defining moment for the ubiquitous white kitchen. However, I have been thinking that tiling the backsplash is not enough in a space that should be easily maintained with a quick wash down. The solution is to tile the entire kitchen.
