There are almost infinite options when it comes to creating a cool kitchen backsplash (and of course, every homeowner's definition of "cool" will be different). Many homeowners seeking a creative design will focus on the backsplash as an opportunity for artistic expression. If this approach appeals to you, there are several ways to approach the design, from a collection of found objects (examples include everything from bottle caps to old gift cards—basically anything durable that can stick to the wall and wipe clean easily) to a mural of tiles depicting anything from a street scene to a classic video game level to a renaissance-style painting.

My love of baskets meant that I had quite a few extra ones lying around from all my flea market/thrift store shopping. So I decided to choose a fun mix of sizes and styles and simply nail them to the backsplash area of my kitchen wall. (I made sure to leave easy access to outlets/light switches.) If I ever want to switch things up or take it down altogether, these are also easy to remove.

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.

When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.

Online restaurant supply houses can offer such great discounts because they have bulk buying power — after all, they're designed to serve restaurants. That usually means, though, that any customer will have to buy an entire case of certain smaller or low-margin items or meet a minimum dollar amount. In general, the bigger the supply house, the more likely the "by the case" requirement. "Keep in mind that most of the bigger restaurant suppliers are getting great discounts because they're working with lots of smaller manufacturers, and it's not cost-effective for them to break a case [into smaller amounts] — plus it encourages damage," says Herschberger.
