Quick Change In the Kitchen

By Christa Terry

Looking for a way to update your kitchen without spending a lot or having to get your demo on? One thing you might try – though I’m always hesitant to mention the W-word, i.e., wallpaper – is the wallpaper backsplash. A wallpapered backsplash can really make a splash, and when you brush a few coats of poly over it or have glass custom cut to fit, you can even splash all you please without worrying about stains. It’s an idea that I’ve considered for my own little kitchen’s decor, but thus far there have been so many other house to-dos that actually taking the time to apply a wallpaper backsplash has been at the bottom of the list. I do, however, really love the results some people achieved by including a wallpaper backsplash in their kitchen decor.

So cute, I don't even mind the wonky edge

One technique, so many possibilities

Here’s a video from HGTV explaining how to DIY a wallpaper backsplash in less than half a day and on a budget:

What do you think? Would a wallpaper backsplash be an easy fix for your kitchen decor woes or just not classy enough for you to consider?

    No way. It will look nice when it’s new, then get junky, then faded and stained and gross, even with sealer over it. Maybe if you do glass but I think it’d be harder to keep clean than tile or just paint.

    …….Wallpaper backsplash…………………..Wallpaper makes a colorful kitchen backsplash. Since a backsplash occupies a small area you can take advantage of sales of single wallpaper rolls and discontinued patterns making this an economical choice.
