Backsplashes are a place where form can meet function or simply add a bit of personality to your kitchen. Backsplashes keep your walls safe from water damage, yes; but have you considered them as a possible place to store kitchen essentials or perhaps as a family message hub? Alternatively, you could use the space to show a bit of personal flair with a showpiece pattern of your own design or an unexpected texture. Our DIY backsplash ideas will give you some inspiration for all of these possibilities.
Because they have a smaller square footage than wall or floor space, people generally find they are a quick and inexpensive kitchen feature to update. The smaller space also means you can be creative and go for something bold without overwhelming your kitchen. Better yet, when and if your choice becomes dated, you can quickly and painlessly switch it out again.
In today’s world where home improvement projects are so accessible due to blogs, DIY television programs, and YouTube tutorials, these DIY backsplash ideas are definitely doable for amateurs. If your kitchen needs a pick-me-up, consider an update to your backsplash.
