For a super colorful option like this, a cleaner, more neutral counter and cabinet color would be a great way to go.
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.
On top of its ease of use and utility, tile is also highly customizable, making it an attractive backsplash option for anyone looking to mirror an existing kitchen design or add visual interest via a backsplash. Various tile materials are available in an almost endless array of styles, colors, shapes and sizes. Tile materials can be purchased at just about any home improvement store, online or in-store. If you can't find what you're looking for at the local home improvement store, many tile specialty retailers are available online or, most likely, in your area. Whichever style of tile you choose for your backsplash, you shouldn't have any trouble finding it close by or via the Internet.
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.
By far, the most common types of kitchen backsplashes I come across are tile and stone. (And I love me some tile and stone.) But lately, I’ve been venturing into the world of more non-traditional kitchen backsplash ideas. And wowza — there are some good ones out there!
