Non traditional materials + Ingenuity = AMAZING Back-splashes for next to nothing! Check out these awesome Do-it-yourself Ideas:
Bear with me here…I know it sounds strange, but look at it! It is a great look and the price is definitely right! A little spunk is added with non-traditional materials but still has an overall traditional look for the kitchen.
Get a great look for CHEAP! This kitchen backsplash was $30! Gorgeous!
This look can go in several directions, depending on the wood you use. It can have a beachy, shabby chic or rustic/country feel. You could use: old fence wood, old barn wood, pallet wood, etc. The sky is the limit! This is a very hot look right now!
Whether it’s vinyl peel ‘n stick tiles or a cut vinyl design, vinyl is a cheap alternative that can be easily changed out when you’re sick of it! With the at-home vinyl cutter craze (ie: Cricket), many folks now have a vinyl cutter. Put it to use! This is a great way to add a very trendy element that can easily be taken down when the trend is over!
No, I am not joking. Wallpaper or contact paper can be stunning as a backsplash in the kitchen! Starting at $13/roll, how can it be wrong! One roll will do your whole kitchen and you’ll have plenty left over. You can paint any color you want (or go with a metallic for a pressed tin look!)
This is a very modern look but is so economical, it is easy to go for a more trendy look!
Cheap and easy. Not much I need to say about this one, but it can easily go with an industrial or country look!
Yes, it is possible! If you have horrid existing tile, you may think you have no options, but check out this amazing transformation from hideous to hot:
