Backsplash DIY – The backsplash is a small area that can make a big impact on your kitchen. A backsplash is the area behind the sink or an oven which is often covered with smooth and any non-porous material to make cleanup easier. Whether it is the backbone of your design or just a backdrop, it does not need to cost a lot to have an attractive backsplash. If you are on a budget, consider remodeling backsplash itself. You will save money and earn bragging rights at the same time.
Tiling backsplash DIY is a surprisingly simple project even unseasoned do it yourselfer can tackle. Choose a tile that complements your kitchen table, or if you replace the kitchen table as well, choose a backsplash tile you love and use it as inspiration for the rest of your kitchen. Find an online tutorial or check out a library book or video on tiling and simply follow the procedure step by step. Tiles, mounted on mesh sheets will make the task easier, as you can connect one sheet at a time instead of just one tile at a time. They also have quite a distance and straight lines to the grout, and they are easy to cut to fit the space.
If tiling throughout the backsplash DIY seems like a bigger project than you can handle, consider painting the backsplash and assembly decorative tiles here and there, or to place a tile medallion or scene in the space above the oven. Instead of using mortar, you can simply glue the tiles on with a strong adhesive. This approach gives you some of the decorative effect of the tiles without work.
