20 Budget Backsplash Ideas

The kitchen is the heart of your home and anchors your entire decorating scheme, that’s why I think backsplashes are one of the most important elements in home design. Backsplashes and interior lighting are the first elements that date your home. You can typically pinpoint when a home was last updated based on whatever style the backsplash style is.

Today I was asked by the Hometalk team to create a round up of budget friendly back splashes. I saw some incredibly beautiful, yet simple ideas. From hanging mirrors, to peel and stick floorboards, to bead board–I loved them all. The ideas I showcased today offer simple, inexpensive and easy alternatives to make a quick update to your backsplash without the need for complicated equipment, and would be great for a beginning DIYer.

20 Budget Friendly Backsplash Ideas - Board curated for Hometalk.com by SnazzyLittleThings.com

When I started doing home DIY three years ago, I knew that my choice of backsplash would be critical since my home is an open concept and my kitchen is open to the rest of the house. I wanted to be sure I made the right decisions, so I posted a few questions along with pictures on Hometalk. Before I knew it, I knew exactly what direction I would go for my new backsplash.
