    I am just wondering how many people on here have a kitchen backsplash? If you do what do you like about it? If you don't have one WHY?

    Yes, it's much easier to clean splatters off of than paint.

    We didn't, at first, then after a couple of years in the house we installed a glass mosaic tile backsplash ourselves - and the tile is much, much better. Easier to clean, and really beautiful.

    It was easy to install, too, since we had just drywall there. We were able to get really good tile, since we did the installation ourselves.

    Yes, we actually put 6" floor tile as our back splash and we love it! So easy to keep clean!

    Question not one answer

    I take it no one on this forum likes nor has a kitchen backsplash. Funny this area seems to not care if they have one or not. In Texas the kitchen would be classified as incomplete without one. Every place is different.

    Anyone have a pic to share? We are getting to that point in construction. $$ is dwindling, so BUDGET is always in mind.

    Thanks

    Don't rush into it, but you may want to consider using a concrete backing so tile would be simple. A little costlier than drywall, but it's worth it in the long run.

    we originally did not have a backsplash, but lately decided that we really needed one. we are NOT handy, and did not want to spend a lot of $$. we found a terrific product at Home Depot in the kitchen cabinet area. it is some kind of vinyl or plastic that is made to look exactly like vintage pressed tin. our son used it in a nickel finish in his tn condo - HD had it in stock along with all of the edges, tape, etc - you trim it with a scissors. we have a white kitchen here, and ordered it in gloss white - it is awesome!! i think you can also get it in a paintable finish. they have a brochure that shows you what is available - copper, stainless, etc etc. some they stock, some you have to order. we installed it about a year ago and could not be happier with it. looks great - easy to install - easy cleanup. inexpensive. i may be able to find a picture of our son's backsplash to post.

    Backsplash on our house

    We used Holly Shipman to do one in our Rosemary Beach house. She has a great eye for this, and is very reasonable. Her number is 850-510-6777

    Thanks to everyone who answered my question?

    Now My next question is for those of you who installed your own kitchen backsplash.

    Did you rent a wet saw?

    Did you buy the installation tools sponges, trowels, grout floats, buckets etc.?

    What part of the process did you enjoy the most?

    On a scale of 1 to 10 1 being you disliked completely to 10 you really enjoyed running a wet saw or a score and snap cutter?

    Last question for now, If you could have had your entire kitchen backsplash delivered to your door already custom designed to fit your kitchen backsplash area, every tile was already precut to fit the entire area within 1/16" of an inch (Perfect Fit) all over, along with all of the materials and supplies required to install it and lets say you also would have been able to install all of it within hours, all of this lets say for 150.00 to 200.00 dollars more then what you paid to cut it yourself would you have been interested? You would also be minus the wet saw, mess, noise etc.

    I will post a picture of an example of a kitchen backsplash that was precut and installed in six hours just as an example.

    My son and I purchased a cheap wet tile saw years ago for the same price of a rental and have used it many times since then. You can't have too many tools.

    Wet Saws in Highrises?

    Thanks for the link to the wet saw. I am sure the people that like cutting tiles will enjoy that. Part of my question was would you have been interested in a precut kitchen backsplash as I mentioned before or did you just really enjoy running the wet saw and guessing at the outcome of your kitchen backsplash? Also are you in a highrise or house?

    If you are selling kitchen backsplashs, why don't you just come out and say it instead of trying (not to successfully) to lead people into your sales pitch?! :dunno:

    I have backsplashes installed by professionals (one cut in their work warehouse and one cut in my front yard). Was this a sales pitch?
