To me a backsplash to a kitchen is a bit like a belt to an outfit. It has the power to change the whole look and feel of a space.
Today in the Love Your Kitchen Series we will discuss some inexpensive ($75 or under) backsplash options for transforming your kitchen. The first option is for those of you who already have a tile backsplash that you don’t like.
1. Paint it! Do you already have a backsplash up that you would love to get rid of but do not want to go through the effort of demolishing it??? Then you are in luck! The easiest and least expensive option for you is to paint it. Several fellow bloggers have done it and have reported success. See Christy’s experience at 11 Magnolia’s Lane as she provides a step by step tutorial on how to paint tile and a 1 year update on how it has held up.
2. Beadboard or Paneling. Don’t want to deal with the mess of mastic and grout? Beadboard or paneling are great, relatively easy, and inexpensive options. Want to know what the process involves? Check out LeAnn’s tutorial at The Modest Homestead. Below are examples of how designers have employed this style of backsplash.
3. Peg board! I absolutely LOVE the polished yet cozy ambience of the kitchen below! And what’s the backsplash? Well, it’s not peg board. It is a basket weave tile but doesn’t it resemble peg board??? I think it does! It made me think, with a 4ft x 8ft peg board only totaling $17.98 at Lowe’s it’s a great option to getting a similar look. It can be installed the same way as beadboard is installed.
