Installing a backsplash in your kitchen can make your kitchen clean, the cleaning will be much easier. Learn how to do this
Great ideas to DIY your own backsplash.
Installing a backsplash is an easy way to spruce up your kitchen without the hassle and cost of a complete remodel. And, of course, the best part is you can DO IT YOURSELF! Here’s how and a few great examples!
1. Vent Hood
Remove the current vent hood, making sure to turn it off and disconnect the electrical wiring before you do. You can do this by yourself, just make sure you’re very careful because it can be a little tricky.
2. Adjoining Cabinets
Remove the adjoining cabinets of the hood using a screwdriver. Make sure you have someone hold the cabinet as you unscrew so it doesn’t fall off. Keep the pieces together so you don’t have to put a puzzle back together when you’re done!
3. Clean and Prep Walls
Wash the walls you will be adding the backsplash to with a non-sudsing solution. Then sand the walls with 100-grit sandpaper. Be aware that if you’re home was built before 1978 it might have lead paint, and you should not sand it. Instead, use paint de-glosser.
