Today I’d like to share some more ideas on creative using of wallpaper in your home, and these are wallpaper kitchen backsplashes. Yes, backsplashes! You may say that it’s not practical and is a bad idea but I’m ready to prove that it’s not so.

Making a tiled backsplash can be really costly and pretty difficult, not everyone can do it, while a wallpaper backsplash doesn’t cost much and can be created very fast by you, even if you don’t know how, there are lots of DIYs. Besides, temporary wallpaper is a perfect idea for a rented home because you can easily remove it unlike tiles.

Cons

Wallpaper isn’t a practical choice for such a functional space as a kitchen unless you choose water-resistant wallpaper or go for an additional screen over it. otherwise, you’ll have to change the wallpaper very often to avoid a messy look. Due to all that, a wallpaper backsplash isn’t a good idea if you have kids – they will paint on it, break glass and much more.
