This Week in Design: Slab Backsplashes

Modern Kitchen with marble backsplash

Like a super-size version of kitchen wall tiles, backsplashes created from large slabs of stone are becoming a big trend in design. A slab backsplash is certainly a splurge, but if you're willing to compromise on countertop materials - perhaps using a stone alternative like Corian - there may be more wiggle room in the budget to incorporate a backsplash that will make a huge impact.Here are some slab backsplashes we're loving on Pinterest:

For a slab backsplash look without the cost, why not try using 12x24" marble floor tiles?
