Wallpaper has made a huge comeback in home decor and is only growing in popularity. You can see them everywhere, from the bathroom to the children’s room. It’s not just about statement walls, it’s about covering all the walls in wallpaper or even making furniture stand out with bold wallpaper. Today I want to share some more ideas on how to use wallpaper creatively in your home. These are background images for wallpaper in the kitchen. Yes, backsplashes! You could say it’s impractical and a bad idea, but I’m willing to prove that it isn’t.
Creating a tiled backsplash can be very expensive and quite difficult, not everyone can do it, while a background backsplash doesn’t cost much and can be done very quickly by you even if you don’t know how, there are many DIYers out there. Temporary wallpaper is also a perfect idea for a rented house because, unlike tiles, you can easily remove it.
Some backsplashes are water resistant, so they can easily be used in place of tiles. If not, consider installing an acrylic or glass panel to cover the backsplash and protect it from grease and water splashes.
Postcards, drawings and other samples of your own designs or collection can also be hung behind a glass panel for a backsplash. It’s a good idea to personalize your backsplash and give your kitchen a cuter look that cannot be done with other materials.
Wallpaper is a good idea to get noticed. There are many ideas, from retro-inspired to ultra-modern. Tile backsplashes are seen often, but wallpaper is a unique way to add design to your space.
Wallpaper is not a practical choice for a functional space like a kitchen unless you choose waterproof wallpaper or an extra screen over it. Otherwise, you will have to change wallpaper very often to avoid messy look. This is why wallpaper with background images is not a good idea if you have children – they draw on them, break glass and more.
