How to Design a Kitchen Backsplash in Colorado Springs, CO

Home Improvement Tips and How to Design a Kitchen Backsplash in Colorado Springs, CO & Surrounding Areas

A kitchen backsplash is an important update to revamping any kitchen. Whether you need to replace an outdated kitchen backsplash or you are looking for a new color and design, there are many options to find exactly what you need.

What is a Kitchen Backsplash?

If you have seen a backsplash but have never given it much thought, a backsplash runs along counters, the stove, and more areas of the kitchen to keep splatter and more off the walls. It is an easy to clean surface and is a great place to add a colorful touch to the room.

Backsplash Design

Your kitchen backsplash can come in many different colors and designs. Be sure to take your time seeing which design and color will fit your room. These are a great opportunity for a splash of color or to tie the kitchen together.

Backsplashes can come in sheets or you can get super customizable with individual tiling. This will allow full control over the color and design. Repurpose old tiles for a vintage look or get sheets to make the DIY easy and quick.

How to Install a Kitchen Backsplash

Once you have picked out your new design, a backsplash is secured to the wall with an adhesive called thinset. This will go over your freshly cleaned and sanded wall where the previous backsplash had been. Apply the edge along the countertop first to make sure it is flush and then work upwards, away from the counter. There are also peel and stick varieties that are convenient to install!

Start planning your backsplash with these design ideas today. From stick-on to individual pieces, and all in between, give your kitchen that finishing touch it deserves. This small detail is a great way to make a big change if you are on a budget and want to refresh the space. Consider saving yourself the hassle of installation and look into hiring local craftspeople to install your backsplash for you.
