The herringbone backsplash is something everyone falls in love with.
Local hardware stores have made the herringbone pattern easy to accomplish. In addition, you can purchase sheets of a mosaic tile already in the herringbone pattern.
If you are looking to challenge yourself with a DIY project, you can most certainly do it on your own. You can purchase individual tiles of your choice and measure the design out yourself. You’ll need a saw, measuring tape, grout, and tile adhesive.

Different Design Above Stove
Don’t want to install a herringbone pattern in your entire kitchen? No problem! You can do this design or any design you would like in a little cut out above your stove.
Make the center of your kitchen the focal point, which is usually right above your stove. You can design any tile work your little heart desires there. This is a place to be bold and crazy because it’s only a little space.
When applying backsplash to the whole kitchen, mark out where and how big you would like your unique tile work to be above your range. Then, first, work around it to lay the tile or mosaic sheets covering most of the kitchen walls.
Then, place that awesome accent tile or mosaic you want to place above the range. Finally, you can look at some stunning pictures on Home and Gardens to get inspired!
Tin Tile Backsplash
Most of the time, you usually see tin tiles on the ceiling. But did you know they look great as a backsplash too? They add a little shine to your kitchen and will add tons of interest.
Tin tiles are full of personality and design, and you can find them right at your local hardware store.
Instead of a saw, you will need a pair of tin cutters, which are a lot easier to use.

If you want to add character to your kitchen but have a tight budget, a beadboard backsplash is for you!
A beadboard backsplash isn’t something you see often. It is simple yet different. To give it more of a pop, purchase or paint the board a bright, bold color. Of course, if you have white cabinets, pretty much any color goes!
You can purchase sheets of beadboard and apply them yourself. Once you make measurements and purchase the board, you can use a circular saw to cut them. Then, apply adhesive to the back of the beadboard. Finally, to ensure it’s securely on the wall, use a nail gun around the edges.
Make it Pop
Make your companies jaw drop when they see what a gorgeous job you did in your kitchen by simply adding backsplash art!
