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.
Copper backsplashes have become more common in recent years offering a long-lasting visually appealing choice for anyone looking to install or update a kitchen backsplash. These have the added benefit of evolving over time—as the copper is exposed to air and moisture its color will deepen and change often lending a beautiful worn and weathered look to the backsplash.
