If kitchen walls could talk, they’d beg you to install a reclaimed wood backsplash — both to boost their beauty and to protect them from stains, grit, and grime resulting from either cooking fumes or splashes.
Tradition holds that a wood backsplash should be installed behind a kitchen sink (with a splash safe treatment) or stove (ensuring that your local fire codes are being followed), as the wall behind these fixtures is most at risk of being splashed throughout the course of everyday use.
By using stick-on reclaimed wood planks, you can create a functionally and aesthetically pleasing peel and stick backsplash throughout the kitchen.
For instance, designer Kyle Schuneman used Reclaimed Barrel Oak peel and stick planks in his loft to create a wood backsplash. He adhered them over an old mosaic tile and the transformation is amazing!
