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.
One of the first decisions related to your kitchen backsplash design will be scope—just how much backsplash do you need? For some kitchens especially smaller ones a few tiles extending up from the countertops and ringing the room can be plenty; anything more extensive might run the risk of overwhelming the space. For larger kitchens countertop-to-ceiling backsplashes aren t entirely uncommon as grander executions like this can optimize the use of available space and create a dramatic effect or build on an existing theme.
