Creative backsplash ideas are on display in many homes, with good reason—they can add tremendous personality and visual interest to any kitchen.

Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash, you'll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don't always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact, that design might be too overwhelming, especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area, many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen's layout, that may be the whole wall, half of it or only a small portion.

If artistic expression doesn't line up with your idea of a cool backsplash, you may want to consider some non-traditional materials, or even traditional ones in unique textures and colors. For example, stainless steel, copper and tin backsplashes can be found in colors and patterns that can lend a truly stunning visual aspect to any kitchen design. Granite or even ceramic tile can be scored, manipulated and colored to your exact specifications via tile specialty retailers. And some homeowners even opt for wood backsplashes, which can of course be stained and painted to reflect exactly the right amount of cool to suit your style.

Reclaimed and repurposed materials—from punched tin ceiling tiles to things like bottle caps, coasters, used gift cards and even pennies—can make for an impressively creative and visually appealing backsplash in your kitchen. Most creative backsplash ideas that incorporate found materials like these will require some DIY investment from you in terms of time (to research and find the right materials) and budget (to purchase the materials, unless they're already in abundant supply). But what you spend in terms of sweat equity and research time, you'll more than make up for in cost savings by not having to hire a contractor or pay high prices for more traditional materials.

Wood is another fairly inexpensive option for your backsplash. This really brings in a warm, rustic feel to your kitchen. This option would work best in a space that doesn’t already have wood or laminate floors, but you could really get creative with the type of wood as well as the placement of the wood (vertical, horizontal or even a zigzag placement).
