Once you ve decided on the material you ll use for your small kitchen backsplash it s time to determine how much of it you ll need. To do so simply measure the surface area you re looking to cover. This can be anything from the entire wall space between the countertops and cabinets a smaller portion thereof or for a truly grand design the entire wall space between your countertops and ceiling.
Your first step toward installing an inexpensive backsplash is to define exactly how much backsplash your kitchen needs. First you ll need to decide if you want the backsplash to cover the entire wall area above your countertops or simply a portion thereof. Obviously the more extensive your backsplash design the more expensive it will be. So if it s your intent to create an inexpensive backsplash you may want to consider covering only a portion of the walls above your countertops. Many homeowners implement a design that covers 25% to 75% of the wall above the countertops. If you re trying to minimize the effect on your budget you should choose the minimal level of coverage that will still provide adequate protection for the walls based on how much cooking you do and how close the wall is to the most active cooking area.
