Kitchen backsplashes no longer to simply protect walls from spills and splatters. You now have a wide array of materials in a variety of price points to choose from. What is your kitchen style? Do you prefer a tile, wood or metal backsplash? Check out these five fabulous backsplash ideas that are affordable on any budget.

A popular choice for appliances and sinks is stainless steel. You can match these design details with an eye catching backsplash. Stainless steel is an inexpensive and attractive option for most kitchens. This modern look is heat and moisture resistant and easy to wipe clean.

Choose inexpensive beadboard for an easy DIY choice. It comes as plywood or fiberboard panels that can be easily painted. If you choose a contrasting paint color it will make a great statement and be a winning design detail.

Ceramic tile is a very common choice and for good reason. You can find tile in any style, color, pattern or shape. If you can dream it, they have probably made it. Ceramic tiles stand up to moisture, heat and are easy to wipe clean.

Mirror, mirror. Try a mirrored backsplash to add depth to the room. It is an unusual design that is not TOO out there. Mirrors are great light reflectors so this is a great option in a small or dark space.

Many of us want a bold splash of color. This is an easy care solution to just that. Back-painted glass comes in thousands of custom colors. It is a really beautiful design technique, bringing an artistic element into your space. Not to mention so easy to clean!

Create your own work of art! Hand-paint a mural or design on plain white ceramic tiles. Once the painting is complete, the tiles must be glazed and fired in a kiln to hold the paint. This backsplash may be a little more labor intensive but all in the name of custom interior design.

Whether you are designing your new home or updating your current kitchen get inspired with these clever kitchen backsplash ideas.
