Ceramic tile comes in a wide variety of colors and finishes, and is perfect for a custom look without the custom price tag. For the best deal for your money, buy yourself a book about tiling and some grout, and do the installation yourself.
  3. Melamine laminate. Melamine laminate wall panels are a great kitchen backsplash idea because they are cheap and easy to install. Wall panels easily cut into tiles that will fit any size backsplash. As an added bonus, splatters are easily cleaned off the backsplash with a damp rag.
  4. Recycled glass. Making a backsplash from glass tile can get pretty expensive. Recycled glass tile, made from reclaimed and recycled glass, is a great alternative at a cheaper price point. Perfect for the environmental enthusiasts and a great conversation starter during dinner party, recycled glass tile comes in a variety of colors and sizes.
  5. Cork. What’s better than a natural looking kitchen backsplash? A natural looking backsplash with a function. Buy some water resistant cork wall tiles from your local hardware store and get to work. These fun and functional tiles have adhesive backs and are simple to instill. All you’ll need is a box of tacks and you’re ready to roll.
