A more dramatic look for a kitchen backsplash might be the next idea we present here. The amount of surface texture created with this project is amazing. The eye‐catching wall of stacked pebbles fits wonderfully in the natural lakeside style of the owner’s kitchen. If you want to create a backsplash like this and ensure your efforts result in the same finished look, you need to use only small pebbles which are roughly all an identical size. To keep the very natural appearance of the wall and avoid a heavy set in look, do not use visible grout around each stone, just enough on the hidden end to create floating stacks of pebbles. Keep it real, keep it natural.
Since there’s not of space to work with in a kitchenette, you can’t have all the appliances you might want. Full‐size appliances are almost never a part of a kitchenette’s design. Usually they include a microwave, a small fridge and freezer and a hot plate. It’s enough to prepare a few quick and simple dishes but if you want to impress with your cooking skills this is not the place to do it.
We have taken and used chalkboard paint ideas here before and if I remember correctly, we mentioned this particular idea as well. The reason chalkboard paint can be a great backsplash idea is because of the ever changing possibilities. You can write a new funny message everyday, list a favorite recipe, draw funny faces, or cover the area with an artful design to name a few. The particular pattern seen in this image shows alternating shapes and tones of light and dark achieved through the use of a stick of chalk.
Want your backsplash to send a message? How about a stenciled design? That should do the trick. First apply spackle on the wall and let it dry overnight. Then paint the wall any color you want (in this case a dark chocolate tone). Then sponge on bronze metallic paint. Then comes the tricky part: the stenciling. You need to do some research and pick a technique. Also, be patient.
Introducing a bar in a kitchen is undoubtedly an excellent idea for creating extra work space, dining space and for extra convenience. It is not only the decorative aspect of kitchen bars that makes them so popular, but the utility factor also plays a significant role. Besides using the bar area for storing miscellaneous items, the space will also allow you to set a buffet while holding a party for friends and family.
