Kitchen Backsplashes / September 19, 2018 / Anthony Williams.
Mason jars are good for a lot of things when they’re still intact. Cut even when they’re not, you can still find a great use for them. For example, you can make a one-of-a-kind mosaic backsplash for your kitchen using pieces of broken jars. It’s a time-consuming project since you have to press each piece of glass into place and then to level the whole wall but it’s worth the effort.
Tired of the same old tiled backsplashes? Try something different like a herringbone shim backsplash. Cut the shims to size and then create the middle section starting at the center line. Glue down the section and let it sit for several hours. Then, once you apply it onto the wall, you can start adding all the filler pieces. It’s important to measure correctly.
One of the easiest, most fun and versatile ideas is to have a chalkboard backsplash. That’s because it’s easy to get right since all you have to do is paint the wall and let it dry. Then you can customize it however you want and you’ll never get bored of it. And even if you choose not to write anything on the wall, it will still look great.
Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up, especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
