Since the kitchen sees the most foot traffic of any room in the home (yes, even more than the bathroom!) it’s no surprise to us as to why clients are constantly asking for fresh, new innovative ways to make small updates in the kitchen. A snazzy, updated kitchen can be the best return on your investment and can make the difference between closing on a home quickly versus having it sit on the market for months. However, not every design update has to take budgeting, majoring planning and make a dent in the wallet—especially now during the holidays. If you’ve been considering adding a tile backsplash, you may want to consider the massively popular peel-and-stick option. Get the look of high-end tile with the easy-to-install sticky version that you can easily install yourself. And when we say easy, we mean anyone can do this!
Backsplashes not only protect walls from messes and damage, but they also add a beautiful design element that can change the look of the entire room. The new peel-and-stick backsplashes are made from water-resistant vinyl with realistic-looking 3D images, hard gel tiles that look and feel like a textured tile surface, and even real mosaic tiles made from thin natural materials. The best part? All you do is peel off the back and stick it to the wall.
Pro tip: Most of these peel-and-stick backsplashes can easily be cut with a utility knife, but for the best results, it’s a good idea to create a template before cutting a panel to fit around an outlet, cabinet, or the trim of a window.
