In an earlier post, we asked for opinions about the 19’s galley area, specifically keeping the outside wall clean of potential cooking splatters. We appreciate the many comments. Thank you.
We decided to go ahead and install a Formica panel to match the standard Escape countertops. We purchased a 3’ x 8’ sheet of matte Giallo Granite laminate from Home Depot. Cutting and installation was a fun project. The laminate is held in place by the backsplash at the bottom, the range hood at the top, a short strip of mounding at the left, and mounding around the window. It is not permanently adhered, should we ever decide to remove it. The total materials cost was about $60.
We have lots of laminate left over. We installed one sheet in the cabinet below the sink and stove to protect the shelf surface. Likewise, there are several small pieces that will become protective surfaces within other storage spaces.
Lastly, my next project is to make a range cover with yet more of the left over laminate. And when not in use over the stovetop, it will be used as a serving tray.

Now that's a nice backsplash. Well done.

We don't do a lot of serious cooking inside but no splatter prob's. We had a casita for years that had the stove adjacent to the bed. No prob's there either.

That backsplash looks excellent. Worth doing on appearance alone, even if you don't need to worry about splatter.

Thanks all for the delightful comments. The galley really stands out nicely now. The next project is to use some of the left over Formica to make a range cover that will double as a serving tray.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend the Bandon rally. The school year isn't over and the school district likes the teachers to finish out the year. ;-)

Hi Jim!
Oops, too many rallies to look forward too! Unfortunately, we won't make Osoyoos either.
