While a backsplash is common in many kitchens, a kitchen with no backsplash on the window wall can boast a clean and streamlined look. By leaving your walls bare, you open the opportunity to use paint color—whether along the wall, your window frames, or your cabinets—as a statement. If you already have a kitchen with shiplap or staggered tile walls, it is not necessary to add another backsplash tile to the mix.
If you want the functionality of a backsplash without the look of one, there are a few alternatives you can explore. You can use a countertop with a short backsplash lip to protect your walls instead of a full backsplash. You can even install large picture windows behind the sink to catch any water splashes. Here are some window wall with no backsplash ideas you may want to consider for your home.
