And I think you can do that a few different ways.

Tip #3 Use Design to Customize your kitchen Backsplash

First,  you can use color if you’re going to choose to paint your backsplash, you can use a high gloss paint and use a stencil on top of it. You could put the stencils close together or you could make them far apart. The plethora of stencils that you can buy online at your local Michael’s or Jo Ann is amazing. I love using stencils and I think that’s a really great idea.

When you use that stencil, you can use a different type of textured paint over top of your high glass shiny base paint. The design element is endless.

So then let’s talk about that as far as the design. Not only is the color important, but the design, how you lay it on your area that you’re going to do. I think you can do two things with your design.


Home Sweet Design"

Design options: Color and pattern

You can use color to break up a backsplash if you have a long run, like we do have like we have here in our kitchen, or you can use two different types of materials. If you were using tile, you could use two different colors of tiles or you could use maybe a chunky, uh, tile that square. And then the next one you could do little mosaic tiles or, and again, you can play around with the pattern that you want, but that’s something.

Now remember when you’re talking tiles and you’re talking, uh, using a variety of different tiles because of the different cuts you might end up finding that it runs your price up. So just keep that in mind. Uh, another way that you could customize this is the design.

Now, I don’t mean just the design as far as the run is concerned, but I mean how you lay the tiles down. If you look, and I have a whole Pinterest board CLICK HERE for PINTEREST BOARD dedicated to different ways to lay tile. So just say you’re doing a, a standard subway tile and you have two tiles together. You can lay them side by side or you could do the herringbone pattern or you could do two one way and two, uh, diagonally and then horizontally.

You could do a design that’s totally unique to, you could do three, you could do a pattern repeating and again, it’s endless. You add the color and then you add the design and you could even break that up with a something unique that kind of pops out behind your kitchen area or sorry, behind your sink area or your stove area.
