Once you ve settled on the scope of your backsplash project it s time to think about materials. Budget will definitely be a consideration if you re looking to keep this project fairly economical—and luckily there are many options for backsplash materials that are priced to move. Ceramic tile one of the most popular options is also one of the cheapest. It s so widely available and comes in so many different styles colors and textures that you ll likely have no trouble finding the option that s right for your kitchen design and budget. Additionally ceramic tile is available in several pricing tiers each of which corresponds to an ascending level of quality. Glass tile can also be an option for an inexpensive backsplash. Similarly to ceramic tile it s available in a vast array of colors styles and textures and it can also be found in various pricing tiers. At the higher end of the backsplash tile pricing spectrum are natural materials like granite or travertine. These are significantly more expensive than ceramic or glass in general so if you re attempting to stay on budget it may be challenging to find these within your price range.
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.
