Match colors, mix materials. Having a tough time deciding among tiles? Live with them for a while. Tape color and tile samples to the walls to see what they look like throughout the day as natural light changes, suggests Stephen Kahn, president of Anchor Bay Tile in Phoenix, Ariz. Choose one main color and a couple of accent colors to use throughout the kitchen, including the backsplash.
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 is another fun option that I just tried in my own kitchen: a basket backsplash. 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.
