Kitchen Backsplashes / September 20, 2018 / Alfred Johnson.
This next backsplash does resemble one we described earlier, but the stones used are a different size and are installed using a very different technique. These little stones cost around $2.50 per square foot so expensive is not part of the equation. If you want to do this or something similar, the effort required for this DIY project is less than you might expect to create the finished wall you see here. Apply the required grout carefully to the wall area, smoothing it over the entire surface. Then take each irregular shaped sheet of small stones and place it on the grouted wall, setting each sheet so the stones eventually cover the entire wall in an interlocking pattern. Voila, the garden stone kitchen backsplash is now ready.
Want to add a little bit of rustic charm to your kitchen? A fence board backsplash is just what the room needs to look warm and inviting. The idea is simple and transparent. Repurpose fence boards and use them to cover the space between your kitchen counters and the upper cabinets. This technique is perfect if your cabinets are hanging are slightly different heights because you can easily adjust the boards and cut them to size.
If you are skilled with techniques for finishing wood, you could apply a different stain color to play up the backsplash design. After you have decided on the configuration layout, apply the individual boards to the wall using liquid nails adhesive. I can guarantee you a really authentic rustic look as well as a great wall texture.
Glass backsplashes are quickly becoming more popular in kitchen design for a number of reasons: they’re inexpensive, modern, low maintenance and easy to customize. Glass offers a seamless, uninterrupted surface that has the added bonus of reflecting light, which helps to brighten up the room.
