Kitchen Backsplash. Tuesday , September 19th , 2017 - 11:29:56 AM
When you‘ve determined the surface area you‘ll need to cover, it‘s time to think about the materials you‘ll use. Possibly the simplest backsplash option of all—and one of the cheapest, as well—is to use paper for your backsplash. Now, you may be thinking paper doesn‘t sound terribly durable, and imagining the disastrous results of food spatter on it—but fear not, the paper you‘ll use will rest under a protective coating of clear shellac or varnish, so that it‘ll wipe clean easily, and the paper will always be protected. In terms of the paper itself, heavy-duty card stock with interesting designs or colors, or even old maps, newspaper clippings or magazine cutouts can be repurposed to great visual effect. The paper you choose should be applied to a thin layer of plywood that can be nailed to the wall, then protected with a clear coating.
Stainless steel appliances have become common in modern kitchen designs, and with good reason—their sleek, stylish appearance works well in a wide range of kitchens, and they‘re extremely low maintenance. The same is true of stainless steel backsplash tiles—one of the great added benefits of these tiles is that they‘re extremely low maintenance and durable. Ceramic or other forms of grouted tile can require extensive scrubbing or specialty products to clean—with stainless steel tiles, homeowners can normally just wipe them clean easily with some disinfectant and a damp rag.
Tin is another common metal backsplash tile choice. Punched or hammered—or boasting ornate designs—it can add tremendous appeal and visual interest to a kitchen design. Similarly, copper and brass can liven up any kitchen with their unique hues and the added benefit of an "evolving" design; as these metals age, their surfaces will often take on distinct patterns, striations and natural designs that add great style.
