We have a 2-burner stove with a woodgrain wall panel beside it, and a "wallpaper" panel behind it. We often cook bacon, causing some grease splash on the walls. So far they wipe off well. But I figure eventually the walls will get damaged.
I can be proactive and put up a backspalsh now, or wait till the walls need repair.
We found some "plastic" 18"x24" panels at Home Depot, but they were too textured for the wife. Too hard to clean. Anyone know of a suitable alternative, preferably something relatively "flat", yet washable?
