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.
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.
