There's no doubt about it: An entire kitchen renovation is a lot of work. And while a backsplash installation might seem like an easy project, the amount of materials and preparation that goes into the process might be more than you anticipated. It always is, right?
A self-adhesive backsplash is the perfect option if you are looking to up the design ante in your kitchen space without investing a ton of time and money. What's more, self-adhesive backsplashes are available in a wide range of colors and styles, including glass mosaic tiles, artistic patterns, brushed bronze, faux metal and simple laminate designs.
The versatile nature of these peel-and-stick backsplashes makes them not only a simple design solution, but also a fun one.
Although self-adhesive backsplashes are simple to install and require little cleanup, it is important to prepare the wall before applying the material. Experts recommend cleaning drywall or plaster walls with warm, soapy water. It is also necessary to fill in any cracks or holes on a wall to avoid an uneven surface. Be sure to smooth the putty and let it completely dry before applying the backsplash tiles.
