How to Design a Kitchen Backsplash for your Boise, ID Area Home

An Upgraded Kitchen Backsplash Can Be the Final Touch Your Kitchen Needs

When your kitchen is being updated, the kitchen backsplash is an important detail that can’t be forgotten about. It provides a great opportunity for color and designs but also plays an important role in the kitchen. Depending on your needs, you have some options to explore while picking out your backsplash so here are some tips on how to design the kitchen backsplash for you.

If you need a refresher, a kitchen backsplash is the material or design that runs along the wall in your kitchen. As its name suggests, it physically protects the wall from splatters and accidents in the kitchen. These easy to clean surfaces save you time and make a room look good.


The backsplash can come in many different designs and colors.

  • Decorative Tiles
  • Glass Tiles
  • Ceramic Tiles
  • Porcelain Tiles
  • Stone Tiles
  • Marble Tiles
  • Wallpaper
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Stainless Steel
  • Peel and Stick

There are many choices to choose from. Tiles can be rectangular, rounded rectangles, squares, or in any shape and size depending on your creative vision.

Pick a backsplash depending on your needs as well. Varieties such as the peel and stick are cheaper alternatives and come in many easy DIY patterns and colors. While they are easy to install, they won’t last as long as ceramic or more natural tiles will. Creative types, yet not as effective are installing wallpaper instead of a backsplash for color or chalkboard paint, but these will not protect your walls from the splatter of cooking.

Backsplash Installation

Once your kitchen backsplash has been picked out, it will go over your freshly cleaned and sanded wall where the previous backsplash had been. The edge along the countertop will go first to make sure it is flush. Then work your way upwards and away from the counter.

From peel and stick to traditional backsplashes, you have many varieties to choose from. Finish up a kitchen improvement with this detail or change the backsplash to give your kitchen a quick make-over. This will give your kitchen a whole new look and life once the project is complete!
