Last week Hometalk emailed me that they loved my DIY painted faux tile backsplash and they wanted me to curate a board full of other inventive and DIY backsplash ideas, and I was super excited to do so. There are a zillion unique options out there, at a huge mixed range of prices, and even options for renters too!
There’s 14 great ideas all clipped here, but I thought I’d highlight my top 3 here on the ol’ blog.
1. Engineer Your Space created a backsplash with fabric stapled to a piece of plywood, then placed a piece of tempered glass in front of it for safety and protection (this idea looks to be about $100-$150…. so it’d be a great idea for a renter who can’t actually add a real backsplash). Read more about it here.
2. Sara at House Bella added whitewash wood paneling to her whole kitchen and it looks so, so neat. She installed the paneling both as a backsplash and counter front update for less then $100… so I bet supplies enough for just a backsplash would be awesomely inexpensive. Read more about it here.
3. Betty from Oh Everything Handmade added these gorgeous clay tiles to her kitchen and gives a great detailed tutorial on it. I love the design of them, so different from the subway tile we all see (and love) everywhere! Tile is obviously the most expensive of your options, but if you’re in a home you plan to be in for a bit, or a home you plan to flip, I think it’s totally worth it. Read the how to here.
Head on over to my my Hometalk board to scope out all the rest! There’s some awesome stainless steel and glass options, and of course some reclaimed pallet back splashes on there too.
What kind of backsplash do you have? And if you could have any kind, what would you install or create?
