When you are redesigning the look of your kitchen, the backsplash is a great place to start. Once you choose the backsplash of your choice, it sets the tone and helps you choose the rest of your kitchen’s décor, including the flooring, countertops, and appliances. But before you make a final decision on kitchen backsplashes, it is wise to learn what your options are, especially if you working with a tight budget. Continue reading to learn 3 budget-friendly kitchen backsplash ideas.
Revamp or Re-Design
You have two options when it comes to installing kitchen backsplash, but many factors will influence which option is best for you. You can either revamp the current backsplash, or completely re-do it altogether. Depending on the type and the condition of your current kitchen backsplash, you may be able to simply revamp the look by adding materials onto it or on top of it. But if your backsplash is in poor condition, damaged, or just in the way, this may not be a good option for you. Instead, you might want to consider completely re-designing your kitchen backsplash from scratch. Talk to your remodeling contractor for help determining which option is right for your kitchen backsplash.
3 Options for Cost-Effective Backsplash:
❶ Stone, Glass and Tile
Higher-end materials, like stone, glass, and tile, are extremely beautiful and long-lasting, but they are more expensive. By combining materials, both high-end and low-cost materials, you could create a higher-end look at a more reasonable price. Mix and match to create a beautiful backsplash that speaks to the tone of your kitchen.
❷ Stainless Steel Sheets
Many homeowners are reaching for a more modern look. If you are too, choose stainless steel sheets for a smooth and sleek kitchen backsplash design. Stainless steel comes in many grades, so it can take on several color tones. Choose one that matches your stainless steel appliances, or go bright for an industrial look. These sheets are available almost anywhere, and are lower in cost than higher-grade materials like stone and tile.
❸ Wallpaper and Paint
For a simple and super-inexpensive approach, try updating your kitchen backsplash with modern wallpaper and/or paint. Both materials come in virtually infinite colors, styles, and designs; so choosing a look to match the rest of your kitchen should be easy to do. Ask for free paint and wallpaper samples to test on your walls first, before making a final decision.
