Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash you ll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start but keep in mind that you don t always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact that design might be too overwhelming especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen s layout that may be the whole wall half of it or only a small portion.
If you ve decided a new or updated backsplash is just what your small kitchen needs your first step will be to identify the materials you ll use for your backsplash. You ll have myriad choices from traditional backsplash materials like ceramic tile and glass to more high-end materials like stainless steel and granite. Your material choice will likely have everything to do with two factors: the style you re shooting for via your kitchen design and your budget. For anyone attempting to install even a small kitchen backsplash while maintaining a budget high-end materials may be cost-prohibitive. On the other hand if the design style you re trying to implement absolutely needs a granite backsplash despite a limited budget there are plenty of synthetic materials you can consider that will approximate the look of just about any natural stone or other material.
