For a very simple, super economical backsplash option, try using a contrasting paint color. For the most impact, choose a color that will really pop against the palette of the rest of the kitchen. To add an extra element of interest, consider a different paint finish (if you used an eggshell paint on the walls of your kitchen, consider a glossy finish for the backsplash). This will also really help your backsplash pop.
I’ve rounded up 9 of my favorite out-of-the-box backsplashes for those of you who, like me, like to mix things up a bit in your kitchen.
After settling on the scope of the backsplash, you'll just need to decide if you're going to install it yourself (this will require considerable home improvement expertise, time and elbow grease), or have a professional install your cool new kitchen backsplash.
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.
Once you've settled on the scope of your creative backsplash project, you're free to start brainstorming ideas for the materials and theme of the backsplash. It's definitely possible to install a creative backsplash using common materials like ceramic tile or stone in traditional styles like mosaic or subway, but if you're looking to flex your creative muscles, you'll likely want to explore more non-traditional materials.
