If you are looking to add an organic touch to your cooking space, consider a stacked stone backsplash. It is a rustic veneer made of thin stone slabs, which will protect kitchen walls from heat and spills. Even better, the protective facing is available in a broad range of stone varieties including quartzite and marble. And when it comes to gorgeous, rough textures, you find options that range from rugged and three-dimensional, to tumbled varieties that resemble hand-chiseled bricks.
