In that case, you might want to go with a retro option like this pretty silver blender. It has a 50's diner vibe, which kind of makes me want to use it for milkshakes instead of smoothies.

You can get more options than you've ever imagined in a new range, from a stove that actually keeps food cold then turns itself on and cooks it, to one that includes a microwave drawer as well as an oven. Features that used to be considered premium are now standard on many ranges, including smoothtops, sealed burners on gas cooktops and self-cleaning ovens. Even stainless-steel finishes, which continue to be in high demand, have dropped in price according to Consumersearch.com, a website that evaluates product reviews from a wide variety of sources.

Sharp knives are a chef's most important tool (from what I hear!), so a chic block is a necessity if you want to add some glam to your countertop.

If assembling a backsplash from uniquely repurposed common materials doesn't fit your plans, but you still want to create a fun and funky backsplash design in your kitchen, you may want to consider a backsplash of lacquered paper. Using heavy duty scrapbook paper featuring interesting designs and bold colors can give you an efficient, attractive and unique backsplash at a fraction of the cost for one constructed from tile, metal or stone. If this approach is appealing, all you'll need to do is procure some heavy duty paper, then glue or paste it to the wall. Once it's up, coat it with a finish that will allow you to easily wipe it clean without damaging the paper.

This option would work best in a space that doesn’t already have wood or laminate floors, but you could really get creative with the type of wood as well as the placement of the wood (vertical, horizontal or even a zigzag placement).

Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash, you'll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don't always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact, that design might be too overwhelming, especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area, many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen's layout, that may be the whole wall, half of it or only a small portion.

Ceramic tile doesn't need this extra step, but natural tile does if you want to maintain its appearance. "If the tile is stainless steel, find out if abrasives will scratch it, and I would suggest getting a grout additive and sealing the grout itself so it stays fresh and clean for longer," Van Deusen says.

If you need to cover lots of area, like an entire wall, you can add interest without emptying your bank account by opting for practical metal panels. Stainless steel sheets come in a variety of finishes, Spang says. "They are very practical durability-wise, but they are a little more challenging to keep clean."

If your kitchen is a hyper-modern affair boasting stainless steel appliances and angular, monochrome cabinets, you'll have an opportunity to add some color, patterning and visual excitement to what might otherwise be a minimalist design via your backsplash. Alternatively, you may choose to stick with the sleek, modern feel with simple white subway tile or large, slate-like granite pieces. On the other hand, if your kitchen has more of a traditional or country feel, with lots of detailed wood cabinetry and a cozy design, you may want to consider tile that reflects the overall aesthetic and incorporates whimsical designs or traditional colors and patterns.
