Brick

Set the look of your rustic or farmhouse kitchen in stone with a brick backsplash. Brick is durable , easy to spray clean, and can be customized according to color and style.

A classic red brick veneer looks great behind a fireclay farmhouse kitchen sink. Or, paint your bricks whichever color suits you—and repaint as your tastes change.

You can install a simple brick backsplash with veneer brick and heavy-duty construction glue.

Peel-and-Stick Tiles

Peel-and-Stick Tiles

The advent of peel-and-stick tiles has eliminated any last excuse for not having a stylish kitchen backsplash. These peelable tiles come in sheets much like the stickers you used to play with as a kid (but these are way more fun!).

Pick up a sheet at your local home improvement store, stick your tiles to the wall behind your sink, and voila! It literally takes minutes to have a beautiful new tile backsplash.

Peel-and-stick tiles come in all shapes, styles, and sizes. You can even find them in large, uniform sheets if you’re not feeling too creative. Just choose the design that’s right for your kitchen and get sticking!

Chalkboard

Chalkboard

Need a place for your to-do list where you’re sure you won’t forget it? Turning your kitchen backsplash into a functional chalkboard isn’t just convenient to place reminders, but it also makes sense as a backsplash. Chalkboard material is waterproof and quick-drying.

You don’t need to find a vintage chalkboard to make this backsplash dream come true. Just buy a can of chalkboard paint and apply it behind your sink. This versatile paint can be applied to wood, metal, stone, glass, or plaster. If you get tired of it, it can easily be painted over.
