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.
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.
There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course, every homeowner's definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you, there are several ways to approach the design, from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.
Creative backsplash ideas are on display in many homes, with good reason—they can add tremendous personality and visual interest to any kitchen.
I’m not sure where this backsplash obsession came from or whether or not it will ever end, but since we’re being honest, I should further confess that about once a week I like to hop onto Pinterest, type in “kitchen backsplash,” then spend WAY too time scrolling through backsplash porn.
