When mankind progressed to having a kitchen indoors, the need for a method to clean dishes and the cooking equipment was born. The first kitchen sinks were made of stone, then metal, and porcelain and steel. The need for cleanliness became evident also, as well as a means to make clean up go more easily. Splashbacks behind sinks and on the walls above the counters helped to protect the wall from moisture and mould.
