Kitchen Backsplashes / September 22, 2018 / Ethan Moore.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
This next backsplash does resemble one we described earlier, but the stones used are a different size and are installed using a very different technique. These little stones cost around $2.50 per square foot so expensive is not part of the equation. If you want to do this or something similar, the effort required for this DIY project is less than you might expect to create the finished wall you see here. Apply the required grout carefully to the wall area, smoothing it over the entire surface. Then take each irregular shaped sheet of small stones and place it on the grouted wall, setting each sheet so the stones eventually cover the entire wall in an interlocking pattern. Voila, the garden stone kitchen backsplash is now ready.
Whether you’re remodeling your entire or kitchen or just looking to refresh the space, we’ve narrowed down a few different kitchen backsplash ideas.
Adding a splash of color to your décor is always a welcomed way to make the environment brighter, but in a kitchen too much color could overwhelm the room. So, what might be a good DIY possibility? That’s right, a backsplash! This project presents a very cool idea for protecting your walls from unwanted stains while animating the light in the environment. The choice made by this home owner was for a kitchen backsplash made of glass. Visit a local glass shop to locate a single 36 inch square sheet of polished or back painted glass for around $200, and have an easy DIY project for your kitchen.
