Creative backsplashes don't have to be made from found items, though—they can be much simpler, but just as colorful and visually appealing. Many homeowners looking to add a uniquely creative design to their kitchen have begun to feature "paper" backsplashes. Featuring interesting designs and bold colors on materials like heavy duty scrapbook paper, old newspaper pages, or even magazine image collages, these backsplashes provide plenty of visual punch at a fraction of the cost of ones constructed from tile, metal or stone. If you find this approach appealing, all you'll need to do is procure the paper, glue or paste it to the wall, then coat it with a finish that will protect the paper and allow you to easily wipe it clean.

One of the great benefits of a tile backsplash—setting aside the fact that it'll protect your kitche's walls from unsightly, unsanitary food spatter—is that it can add great aesthetic appeal, visual diversity and color to your kitchen design. The tile backsplash in a kitchen—especially one that features an otherwise understated, contemporary design—is often a great place to experiment with bold designs, patterns and colors.

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.

When you've decided on the style for your cool kitchen backsplash, it's time to figure out how much material you'll need. You can do this by measuring the surface area you want to cover—likely anywhere from a small portion to the entirety of the walls between your kitchen's countertops and cabinets—and then sourcing the square footage of material needed to cover that surface area. For almost any type of tile, wood or metal backsplash, your local home improvement store or tile specialty store should offer a wide range of options.

A small kitchen can provide a number of unique design challenges in terms of decorating and optimizing spaces, but there are also several benefits of a smaller space, including efficiency of design and the lower cost involved in refurbishing less square footage.
