For less than $ 500, you can install a new DIY kitchen backsplash in your kitchen. The practical function of a backsplash is that it protects the walls between your countertops and cabinets, providing an easy-to-clean, water-resistant surface. The back wall also allows you to give your kitchen a new look, without undergoing a complete remodeling project. Once you are familiar with the different options of the back wall, you can choose the one that best suits your needs and stylistic tastes.
The tile is a durable back wall solution, as it is water resistant. Plain colored tiles can be purchased for as little as $ 2 per square foot and patterned tiles for around $ 6 per square foot. Or, try mosaics with a stained glass look. Although it is more expensive at around $ 9 per square foot, the back wall of the mosaic tile really stands out.
Fake brick is another option for a kitchen backsplash and costs around $ 25 per square foot. Like the tile, the fake brick can be attached to the drywall or drywall and is water resistant. Multi-colored bricks are available, but this option is usually reserved for creating a traditional look in your kitchen. Fake bricks are available that look the same as the red bricks used in the construction of a traditional fireplace. If you think your kitchen is too modern or contemporary, a brick splash guard has some old-time charm.
