Slab backsplashes are becoming increasingly popular, replacing traditional white subway tile backsplashes and trendy zellige tile backsplashes. They are made from one large piece of continuous material and can be matched to the countertops or used as a statement piece with a bold contrasting color or design. Popular materials for slab backsplashes include granite, quartz, and marble, among others. Emily Ruff, owner, and Principal Designer at Seattle-based design firm Cohesively Curated Interiors, notes that many clients are requesting slab backsplashes that extend all the way to the ceiling around windows or a range hood, allowing the stone to shine without upper cabinets. Additionally, April Gandy, Principal Designer at Alluring Designs Chicago, points out that carrying the countertop to the backsplash creates a seamless, clean look that is easy to maintain since there are no grout lines.
