Easy to clean backsplash for cooktop area

10 years ago

Has anyone used any of the newer solid surface materials ( Corian for example) as a backsplash behind the cooktop/range?

I don't want to use tile ( been there, done that, hated the endless cleaning and the grout ); stainless steel leaves fingerprints and scratches and would look too commercial for my kitchen since all our appliances are ss.

We have a large area above our brick-alcoved cooktop and need to cover three wall areas plus the ceiling above ( which houses the exhaust fan and lighting).

We're doing quartz countertops ( Silestone Lagoon) and I did think of extending it all the way up but feel it would look too "blah" ( plus will be expensive).

Any suggestions for a pretty yet easily maintained backsplash material from which grease can be easily wiped away?
