Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Backsplashes September 15, 2017 20:26:00
Before you decide on a theme or materials for your unique kitchen backsplash you ll want to define the scope of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage is a good place to start but keep in mind that you don t always have to cover the entire wall with the backsplash. Many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or cleaning covering anywhere from 25% to 75% of the wall s surface area.
For a very simple super economical backsplash option try using a contrasting paint color. For the most impact choose a color that will really pop against the palette of the rest of the kitchen. To add an extra element of interest consider a different paint finish (if you used an eggshell paint on the walls of your kitchen consider a glossy finish for the backsplash). This will also really help your backsplash pop.
