Kitchen Backsplashes / September 23, 2018 / Ethan Moore.
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.
A kitchen can look finished without a backsplash, and sometimes a clean coat of (washable) paint is what best executes a design. But at the same time, there’s also an opportunity to use the space to anchor the overall design of the room.
When choosing a backsplash it’s best to think about what you want in the space. Are you a big cook? You’ll want something that doesn’t stain or require hours of scrubbing to clean up. On a budget? Intersperse a pricier tile you like with a cheaper option. After a high resale value? Skip the focal point and stick to something simple with clean lines. Nervous about color? Pick a bold paint color to use on walls instead.
Mason jars are good for a lot of things when they’re still intact. Cut even when they’re not, you can still find a great use for them. For example, you can make a one-of-a-kind mosaic backsplash for your kitchen using pieces of broken jars. It’s a time-consuming project since you have to press each piece of glass into place and then to level the whole wall but it’s worth the effort.
