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.
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.
