Tiles are no longer the only option when it comes to creating a backsplash for your kitchen. Wallpapered backsplashes are now trending! Not only are they more affordable and easy to install, but they are also far more attractive! If you’re skeptical about a wallpaper installation, here are a few things to change your mind:
- It’s completely customizable. You can get your paper custom printed, or even try DIY projects where you hang your collection of postcards, drawings, and other patterns behind a sheet of plexiglass.
- It’s easy. All you have to do is pick a wallpaper and install it. You can use a professional contractor to install the paper or do it yourself, and once its on, well that’s about it!
- It protects. Just like tile, wallpaper backdrops will keep oils and grime away from your wall. “Splash-proof” wallpaper makes the job even easier, but if you can’t get your hands on any simply get a sheet of ¼-inch-thick tempered glass cut to the size of your backsplash. This can be easily affixed using silicon glass sealant, or you could install a channel to hold up the glass ‘for that “look ma, no hardwares” effect with just a noodle of silicon where the counter meets the splash and corner verticals.’
