If you have a backsplash in your kitchen that you really don’t like, but don’t want to go to the trouble to do a major tile job, consider some of the peel and stick alternatives. If you can do it for your floors, you can do it for your walls. In addition to that, the price isn’t too bad for a real unique look. I found some tile at Amazon for between $3.50 and $5.50 per square foot (click the image below for details). The price depends on the color that you choose. Oddly enough, copper was the least expensive option.
You could even go over an existing tile backsplash. You will have to address any exposed ends in a unique way, but the look is completely new in just a few hours.
The idea behind this project came to my attention while at Home Depot. They carry a beautiful peel and stick tile product from Aspect Metal Tiles. The tiles are 3″ x 6″, come in boxes of 8, and are available in 4 colors. The price is around $20 a box, so you can see how pricey this option might be with each box covering just 1 square foot.
You can find other options out there if you look hard enough, so if you are after something unique, you might want to give Ebay a try. There are manufacturers who well direct such as www.stainlesssteeltile.com. This company seems to have the largest variety of designs and colors available. The installation isn’t the peel and stick type, but it is still very simple with the use of a tube of construction adhesive. The unique tile shapes provided make this a great source for a unique back splash look.
Good luck with your tile backsplash project. A couple of hundred dollars and a few hours of your time can have your kitchen looking like a new, modern home.
