Kitchen Backsplashes / September 25, 2018 / Darold Davis.
Want your backsplash to reflect your passion for traveling around the world? Or perhaps you simply find the idea interesting. Either way, a map backsplash is a really original and wonderful idea. It’s pretty much like applying wallpaper except you’re using maps. Similarly, you ca also use pages from magazines, comic books or wrapping paper.
The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials, whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget, splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
This second project is another easy to do project for a kitchen wall. The awesome idea uses wine corks standing on their ends to make a beautiful contemporary and natural-looking warm toned backsplash. There are many ways to make a DIY backsplash from wine corks, but the simplest one is to glue the corks on a board and then attach the board to your kitchen wall.
If you are skilled with techniques for finishing wood, you could apply a different stain color to play up the backsplash design. After you have decided on the configuration layout, apply the individual boards to the wall using liquid nails adhesive. I can guarantee you a really authentic rustic look as well as a great wall texture.
