8 Ways to Style your Kitchen Backsplash
Bored with the regular backsplash? Here are 8 trendy ways to style an all-new backsplash for your kitchen! The backsplash is a very important feature of all kitchens and there are lots of options to choose from. We share with you 8 interesting ways to style your backsplash with some of the trendiest ideas.
A popular and affordable way to change the look of a backsplash is to apply adhesive vinyl in decorative patterns. The vinyl is can be wiped easily, so it’s a great alternative for areas that get hit with splatters. The vinyl looks like an intricate tile or stencil design but is actually a vinyl adhesive that is simply applied over a painted wall.Vinyl is also a great option if you’re indecisive or don’t want to commit to one backsplash for an extended period of time—it peels off easily without residue.
Paint Your Existing Backsplash
One of the simplest ways to add an instant pop of color or brightness to your backsplash is to simply paint over the existing tile or drywall. This can be as simple as painting a dull brown tile into a solid bright color.
Tiles are a classic backsplash material, but you don’t need to go to all that trouble to achieve that look. Peel-and-stick faux tiles eliminate messy and time-consuming grout and tile work, and cut the cost of the project, too. These adhesive faux tiles are heat- and moisture-resistant, and easy to remove if you want to switch up your design in a year or two.
Just like faux tiles, faux brick is a great way to avoid messiness and expense while achieving a surprisingly pulled-together. The brick paneling is cut to fit the backsplash space and the outlets. To make the brick look more realistic, you can paint over it and even add a slightly distressed finish.
Metal Backsplash Out of Roof Tiles
Decorative metal roofing tiles are another great option for an economical and beautiful backsplash. These tin tiles can be purchased inexpensively. They look luxe, but they’re actually affordable and easy to install over existing tile with heavy-duty glue, and easily cover any existing grout lines.
Backsplash Out of Laminate Flooring
Pallet walls are trendy right now, but using real wood can be a hassle for installation, and it’s expensive. Using laminate wood flooring gives a modern and homey look that’s less expensive than tile or real wood, and way easier to install. The flooring is easy to cut and fit into your space, and you can install it using a brad nailer.
Pattern with bold colored tiles
Adding a stacked bond pattern, with vertical and horizontal grout seams all lined up will look like the pattern on a piece of grid paper. This simple, fresh look works particularly well with brightly colored tile and clean-lined cabinetry. The seams between the flat-front, or slab, cabinets mimic the clean, orderly grout lines of the tile’s stacked bond pattern. And because the cabinet colors are neutral white and wood, the bold tile color offers contrast and creates a vibrant focal point for the room.
Try Beadboard Backsplash
Beadboard is an inexpensive and easily accessible material that will give your kitchen a clean, bright white color. Its white color and clean lines are great for creating an illusion of space in small kitchens, too. It can be installed easily, in one large sheet cut to fit the space of your backsplash. There’s also no need to remove an existing backsplash since beadboard is relatively lightweight and can be installed with glue or liquid nails over the existing material.
