But in a regular family kitchen, the backslash, counters, cabinets, islands and sink too are exposed to heat and food particles that float around during cooking or fall accidentally. Under these circumstances stains are readily visible so the best option would be to mix textures and colors that complement each other to create a white kitchen that is easy to maintain and also take precautions to avoid stains and damage. To protect white cabinets, shelves and backslashes from developing a yellowish tinge, shield them from direct sunlight.
