DIY Backsplash: How to Update Your Kitchen in a Flash


Choose Your Design

The options for a new tile backsplash design can feel almost endless: You’ll find glass tile in plain squares or complicated mosaics, traditional white ceramic subway tile, and designer options that are hand-painted, cut into intricate shapes, or customized to your exact specifications. The prices vary widely, too, so decide on a budget before you start shopping. You’ll also need to choose a grout color, which can alter the finished look of your wall – white tile with dark grout looks very different from monochromatic white on white.
