Your post came up when I googled solutions for the same problem. Then I did a search in Amazon where there was a fairly expensive mat of sorts. I took this idea and made one from some extra under cabinet mat that I had. Not sure if it will work yet, but thought I would share. I will cut it better with a fresh piece if I think it’s worthwhile.
I actually have the same issue. We have some aggressive dish washers in the house and the water will get on the faucet side of the island and flood over and get my stools all wet. I’m looking for something permanent a couple of inches tall either in glass, stainless steel or marble that would surround the back and back sides of the sink. I call it a surround, and I know I’ve seen them before, but I can’t find them now. They’re also useful for keeping small kids hands out of the sink from the backside.
Just saw this and it might would work. Just something to block it from running. I’m having the same problem. Constantly getting things wet on my bar.
I wonder why the manufacturer of the counter tops don’t make the area around and behind the faucet slope back towards the sink. Most of our water comes from putting our hands on the faucet when they are wet.
@Synthia I know this is an old post, but I am looking into remodeling my kitchen and all designers have suggested moving my sink to my peninsula. Was looking for ideas to keep water from splashing or spilling over. Love the box with plants in it idea. But was wondering if you came up with a solution. I've tried looking for decorative splash guards but only plastic ones come up.
I have this exact problem. If I could, I would put in a farm sink that saves you 3" on the back side of the faucet. I would then add a rectangle planter like the one posted in one of the comments. Just can't replace sink and countertop right now.
What did you end up doing? I am having the EXACT same issue currently. Scouring the internet for advise. Thought I was outta luck til now. I liked Tonia's idea about the removable backsplash. Anywho.
