Freestanding ranges - built-in backsplash - a dated look?
Until coming to this board, I didn't even notice whether a range had a built-in backsplash (the thing that rises up at the back) or was level all the way to the wall.
My kitchen's currently getting a facelift and I've deferred getting new appliances until my budget recovers. When that happens, I'll get a 30" freestanding gas range.
I like the clean look of no built-in backsplash, but if I go that route, my choices are limited and the price increases. Uh oh, here it comes: Is this look trendy? Fixed to a certain decade that will look dated? That built-in riser looks a little dated right now, but I don't mind it.
