41. Faux Tile Backsplash
The backsplash is the spot that can add a little bit nuance to your kitchen. Therefore, installing some tiles or repainting it would perk your kitchen up in no time. However, investing in some tiles will cost you a fortune.
Don’t be sad! If you can’t afford the tiles, you can still fake the look. It will definitely help you save more bucks. To make faux-tile backsplash, you will only need semigloss paint, painter’s tape, rosin paper, box brush, paint roller, etc.
First, tape the counter space so the paint won’t ruin the unwanted area. Apply the color base of your choice along the backsplash. This will be the grout of your faux tiles. Then, apply ¼” masking tape that you can get from a craft store to form the design of the tiles you want to cover the backsplash. Once the tape is up, you can begin to paint the tiles.
If you’re done painting, you can remove the tape and let the paint dry before applying a little glaze and polyurethane to make the tiles look authentic.

36. Jazz Your Backsplash Up Temporarily
If you are a kind of person who can be bored easily, installing tiles to cover your backsplash is not a good idea as you will find it hard to remove the tiles without wreaking havoc to the wall.
Instead of covering your backsplash with tiles, you can try covering it with plywood and Velcro for a temporary charm. This idea will enable you to install and remove the plywood in a jiffy without jeopardizing the backsplash.
To get this look, you need to get some plywood panels, measure out the panel dimension, and begin to cut them off using a jigsaw. Apply a coat of primer before your base color. Let it dry before applying the patterns. You can actually use any kinds of patterns including stencils. Just make sure they can add a personality boost to your kitchen. Once you’ve applied the patterns, now you can begin to attach the panels on the backsplash using Velcro ultra-mate. It’s super easy and super cheap.

This trick is super easy and cheap. But first, get 2-3 rolls of painter’s tape, high gloss paint to make the tiles look real, a long level, a pencil, and a real subway tile. You’re gonna still need the actual subway tile to get the best measurement. You don’t want your backsplash look terrible, do you? Then, you can begin to choose the pattern you want, then do the measurement before painting it.
