Adding a backsplash in kitchen

the wallpaper is coming loose in our 2002 Journey and I like the look of the new motorhomes with the backsplash behind the sink and stove area. Has anyone added one? If so what type of material and where did you purchase it? I was looking at some at Lowe's, it is like the corian we now have on the countertops. Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome.

If you want to match your counter top, you can order the same material the folks that provide the stuff for Winnie. They will cut the pieces to your specifications and all you have to do is attach it to the wall with silicone sealant/adhesive. I ordered enough to add back splashes in our bathroom and around the kitchen sink and stove.

The material is called Vendura. You can contact them at:

Attaching the back splash

Yesterday it became necessary to remove part of the back splash to get at some wiring to install a new remote panel for our inverter/charger. It was suggested that a couple of dabs of silicone on the center of the back surface and a couple of dabs of hot glue at the ends of the back surface would hold it. If you can leave a little space with tooth picks on the bottom edge so you can add caulk later. The hot glue will hold the back splash while the silicone takes some time to set. I finished the bottom edges with the DAP Kwik Seal Kitchen & Bath Adhesive Caulk. The colors available are biscuit, almond and white.
Caution: The #$%@?!! hot glue gun works well but will really blister ones integument. So handle with care.
