Stainless Steel Backsplashes — Love It or Hate It?

Love It or Hate It? Stainless Steel Backsplash

Stainless steals the show right now, and a kitchen planner I recently met with recommended a stainless steel backsplash as a unique way to update my cuisine. Like most folks, I'm already a fan of the finish on appliances and fixtures, but I never considered taking it a step further on the walls too. I love the look of the kitchens from Stainless Living, but I have a hard enough time keeping my metal appliances fingerprint free; I can't even imagine tackling the job of cleaning a stainless backsplash as well. What do you think?

Love it so much I installed it in my own home! Cleaning is not a problem at all. Appliances are a bigger headache to clean because we touch them constantly and leave fingerprints! We don't touch our backsplash! Grease and splatters wipe away easily with a good cleaner.

Love the look, but I would not want it in my house because of the cleaning.

I think in the pic above it's too much because of the SS upper cabinets. I think that if it were a "feature" but not the norm, it would be okay. But if you have SS cabinets and appliances, prob too m uch.

I love the look but we won't put them up in our kitchen, it's way too high maintenance. Which is why when we're upgrading appliance, we'll stay away from stainless steel. Suck..but yeah..oh well.

Uh, no. I'd hate to be there on a particularly shiny day. Talk about a reflection!

I like the look though it wouldn't work in my house...what i don't like is cleaning my stainless appliances constantly! I couldn't imagine cleaning an entire backsplash!
