Backsplashes can be far more useful than simply beautifying your kitchen. A functional backsplash can free up precious countertop space. In addition, such a backsplash will be more convenient for you as you can keep the items you use regularly here for easy access. It is more convenient to store the kitchen items you use often on the wall space in front of you instead of having them in the kitchen cabinets, which are usually out of ordinary reach. KBR Kitchen and Bath has all the tips that you need to help you accessorize your backsplash.
- Hire a pro to accessorize your backsplash
If you are excellent with a drill, and possess the right drill bit, as well as the appropriate amount of patience, then you can go ahead and trick out the backsplash on your own. Otherwise, it is best to leave the reconstruction of the kitchen backsplash to professionals. The person you hire will depend on the type of material used on the backsplash. For instance, if you have a tile backsplash, you are going to need to hire a tile installer to trick out this type of backsplash.
The cost of the project will depend on whether you hire a professional or do the job yourself. If you do hire a professional, the cost will rise because of the additional labor cost.
- Materials required
You can put accessories on different types of backsplashes including tile, sheet metal, wood, drywall, and stone. The materials required for this project will include a variable speed drill, eyewear, markers, masking tape, stud finder, and plastic anchors.
You are going to need a special drill bit if your backsplash is made of tile, metal, or wood. Another important thing to remember is that the best drill bits for working on a tile backsplash are diamond, or tungsten carbide tips. A regular drill bit will suffice for a backsplash made of drywall.
