I think you mean "backsplash".

No one wants a splashback.
Urban Dictionary: splashback

Sheets of plastic for a backsplash? You have got to be kidding. Everyone would point and laugh.

I would use back-painted glass instead.
Get heat resistent shatter proof glass and paint the back of it any color you want.
That's what we did.
Acrylic scratches way to easily.

Splashback is the BRITISH term for backsplash. Even the website the OP linked to is a British site.



You know how they say everything wrong.
