Kitchen Backsplashes / August 19, 2018 / Darrence Miller.
Want to add a little bit of rustic charm to your kitchen? A fence board backsplash is just what the room needs to look warm and inviting. The idea is simple and transparent. Repurpose fence boards and use them to cover the space between your kitchen counters and the upper cabinets. This technique is perfect if your cabinets are hanging are slightly different heights because you can easily adjust the boards and cut them to size.
Brick one way to warm up a kitchen, whether left as is or painted to match the rest of the design scheme. Like stone, brick can be harder to clean, but can be maintained pretty easily if sealed properly and cleaned on a regular basis.
There are many different metals available for you to choose from when creating a backsplash. Besides the stainless steel shown for this project, there are also aluminum and copper tiles which come in many styles, designs, and finishes. If you have finally decided what kind of metal tile you will use and the wall look you want to achieve, go for it. To make the installation as perfect as possible, be sure to turn off power in the kitchen to avoid accidents with live wires and go easy on the amount of glue you use. Let the applied tiles dry for a few hours before using the stove or oven, and then prepare to enjoy your newly decorated kitchen.
The first project on our list features a wonderful rustic backsplash made from the reclaimed wood of old shipping pallets. You can see this backsplash is a great DIY project opportunity for your kitchen because it uses inexpensive materials to create great looking results. If you decide to have this kitchen backsplash, locate some old pallets with boards in good condition, scrub the boards clean, and cut them into smaller sized pieces.
