When you ve decided on the style for your cool kitchen backsplash it s time to figure out how much material you ll need. You can do this by measuring the surface area you want to cover—likely anywhere from a small portion to the entirety of the walls between your kitchen s countertops and cabinets—and then sourcing the square footage of material needed to cover that surface area. For almost any type of tile wood or metal backsplash your local home improvement store or tile specialty store should offer a wide range of options.
When you ve determined the style you want and purchased the material it s time to install your new kitchen backsplash. One of the benefits of a small kitchen is that the surface area you ll need to cover with your backsplash is likely not that large—so a self-install may be possible particularly if you re handy and/or working with self-adhesive backsplash materials that don t require extensive cutting and configuring. If you re not thrilled by the idea of installing your own backsplash or if you lack home improvement chops a professional installation may be in order. It ll be more expensive than a self-install by a large margin but you ll be freeing up your time and giving yourself the knowledge that an expert is in charge of the installation.
