If you want your backsplash to look as if it’s made of wood without actually using this material in the kitchen, the solution couldn’t be simpler: use peel and stick faux wood flooring strips. Working with them is extremely easy. Just measure the space, cut them to size and stick them onto the wall. Finish the project with your choice of paint color, apply two coats and enjoy the new look.
Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up, especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.

Use shelf uppers. In a small kitchen, removing all the upper cabinets may not be a practical option, but you can always use as much or as little as you like to house just your most attractive everyday items.
Using a mirror for the backsplash opens up the sightlines, making the room seem much bigger, especially from close up. For a smart, moodier effect, use a tinted glass so the reflection is more subtle.
Eggplant. A basket of vegetables is a great source of inspiration for kitchen color palettes. This yummy eggplant is made even more beautiful by the warm metallic finishes on the hardware and faucets. And if you’re not ready to paint all of your cabinets, try using your saturated-color choice as a large accent like they did here, where using it on just one wall of lower cabinets was the right dose.
