Anyone who has been to this site before, knows that we are in love with kitchen tile backsplash design ideas. But let’s face it, not everyone has the time or interest in totally ripping out the kitchen or even trying to get a project of that kind of scope done in one day. It’s a lot of work!
To answer this cry for assistance, I have put together real-world backsplash ideas that you can finish in under an hour. Yes, only one hour until you are looking at an attractive, awesome and company friendly baskplash that looks like you put a lot of time into it.
Think vinyl – Vinyl Backsplash by ACP. It looks like the old fashioned tin ceiling tiles. But it’s made out of vinyl and comes in sheets that are 18″ x 24″. You can even install them with double sided tape.
Got to be smarter than the tile – Smart tiles, the peel and stick alternative. Available in several colors and styles these are sure to fit any decor. Perfect if you don’t want to spend a lot of time on the project, but want to add some spice to your kitchen. Consider these tiles if your kitchen is blah now, but you know you’ll be doing a remodel in the future. To demo these tiles all you need is a hair dryer!
Stone Tiles Made Easy(ier) – Solistone’s cubist series. This is the hardest to install of the products in this article. But compared to other tiles you get to skip the grouting step. Solistone’s Cubist series are natural stone mesh tiles that have an amazing high relief 3-D affect. It will give depth and interest to any wall. But beware this is a very modern design and runs around $20 square foot. Available in six colors, and cleverly named after artists. My favorite is Cezanne!
