Kitchen Backsplashes / September 13, 2018 / Cade Brown.
Adding a splash of color to your décor is always a welcomed way to make the environment brighter, but in a kitchen too much color could overwhelm the room. So, what might be a good DIY possibility? That’s right, a backsplash! This project presents a very cool idea for protecting your walls from unwanted stains while animating the light in the environment. The choice made by this home owner was for a kitchen backsplash made of glass. Visit a local glass shop to locate a single 36 inch square sheet of polished or back painted glass for around $200, and have an easy DIY project for your kitchen.
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.
If you really want to add some eye-catching focal points with personality to your house, I suggest you to pay close attention to this project. In this kitchen of repurposed cabinets, the powerful collage of colored elements automatically draws your focus. This stunning mosaic backsplash is made entirely of mixed tiles. The idea and project is really simple but the finished result is fantastic. Cheap and simple, what’s not to like?
Ever considered simply painting your backsplash without actually using anything else? You can pretty much create any pattern and design you want. In this case, a herringbone pattern was chosen. To make something similar, you need a lot of tape. Decide on a size for your painted tiles. Then make tiny pencil marks on the wall to know where the grout lines should go. After that, make the horizontal lines and start taping and painting. It’s tricky and you need lots of spare time for a project like this but it’s also really original.
