When you ve decided on the style of the stove backsplash and sourced the materials needed it s time to turn your attention to installation. You ve got two options here: the DIY route or professional installation. Depending on the complexity of the job and the difficulty of working with your chosen backsplash material (some tile materials are easier to configure cut and secure to the wall than others for example) as well as your own level of DIY expertise you may choose to hire a contractor to install your backsplash or if you re confident in your abilities save some money by installing it yourself.
Once you ve settled on the scope of your creative backsplash project you re free to start brainstorming ideas for the materials and theme of the backsplash. It s definitely possible to install a creative backsplash using common materials like ceramic tile or stone in traditional styles like mosaic or subway but if you re looking to flex your creative muscles you ll likely want to explore more non-traditional materials. Reclaimed and repurposed materials—from punched tin ceiling tiles to things like bottle caps coasters used gift cards and even pennies—can make for an impressively creative and visually appealing backsplash in your kitchen. Most creative backsplash ideas that incorporate found materials like these will require some DIY investment from you in terms of time (to research and find the right materials) and budget (to purchase the materials unless they re already in abundant supply). But what you spend in terms of sweat equity and research time you ll more than make up for in cost savings by not having to hire a contractor or pay high prices for more traditional materials.
