Do you wish you could update your kitchen but simply don’t have the financial resources or time to do a complete remodel? Let’s look at one option that can make a huge transformation with a minimal investment. Changing out the backsplash can take years off your kitchen’s tired look and instantly give it a fresh and modern feel.


A backsplash is a protective covering that keeps kitchen mishaps from splattering on the walls from pesky substances such as grease, water, suds, etc. It’s a wonderful creation that provides functionality and so much more! It can define the style of your kitchen and enhance the entire space. The cost can be minimal depending on the material you choose so don’t be afraid to explore all of the different options. There are thousands of new surfaces that can be used today.


Traditional ceramic tiles are still a great choice and come in every color imaginable. Styles range from the favorite subway tile to exquisite mosaics. Different designs can be created with diagonal patterns and by interchanging different shapes and sizes.

Metal surfaces include tin, stainless steel, copper and many others. Flat sheeting gives a sleek and modern feel while intricate designs give visual interest. Metal finishes are also great options for those who seek an industrial look.

Reclaimed wood is making its way into the kitchen with an earthy and rustic appeal.  Pecky Cypress has tremendous character and because no piece is alike, a truly one-of-a-kind look can be obtained. Cedar and pine also make a perfect background for a warm effect.

Glass tile is another popular material that spans the gambit with different colors and textures and can make an artful statement!  New on the scene is vintage mirror and it lends itself to a more elegant style.
