    Kory....Are you wanting a black splash? They have tin sheets that work well. You can purchase in silver, pewter, gold tones at Lowes. Would work with lots of decos.

    Hi Kory,

    Water by nature and use will splash around faucets, what you could look into is a backsplash, but this will not prevent the splashing. Ordinary uses such as washing dishes, hands, general water use will cause splashing. What we do is just wipe it up and that's it.

    The only way I can think of to prevent splashing is to have a tube that directions the water from the faucet down into the sink.The tube would have to fit over the faucet where the water comes out and be at an appropriate length where it would not cause any splashing onto the area behind the faucet. This tube could be made of plastic, check the diy stores for this. Best to you.

    You really can't unless you make everyone slow down, turn down the flow of water and pay attention to how they use the water. It's just the nature of water and faucets. Give up and put in a backsplash. You'll still have clean up though.

    There's not really a good way to keep water from splashing. Turning the faucet to a very low pressure and being very careful about not having too much water in the sinks might help but it's nearly impossible to keep any liquid from splashing. Why not just include the quick wipe up in your routine and forget worrying about splashing?

    The only "cure" is change faucet out to one that sticks out closer to the middle of the sink. Make your family wipe up dribbled water from their hands with a microfiber cloth you keep under the sink after each wash. Hang it on a command hook on the inside of the door or teach them to let their hands drip into the sink before turning off the faucets.
