Kitchen Backsplash. Tuesday , September 19th , 2017 - 11:33:45 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.
A small kitchen can provide a number of unique design challenges in terms of decorating and optimizing spaces, but there are also several benefits of a smaller space, including efficiency of design and the lower cost involved in refurbishing less square footage.
Before you decide on a theme or materials for your unique kitchen backsplash, you‘ll want to define the scope of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don‘t always have to cover the entire wall with the backsplash. Many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or cleaning, covering anywhere from 25% to 75% of the wall‘s surface area.
