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.
There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course every homeowner s definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you there are several ways to approach the design from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.
