There’s nothing that brings a kitchen, bathroom, or laundry space from nice to wow quite like a splashback. We know tile is the classic standard, but it’s not the only way to bring some big style into that small space. We’ve shared 5 DIY splashbacks before and products to make DIYing your splashback a breeze, and today we’re bringing you five more. The best part, these DIY tile alternatives don’t break the bank! Whether you’re looking for a long term solution or just want something to beautify your space until you can afford the full renovation- these DIYs are the perfect place to start dreaming.
1. Try Ceiling Tiles
Steel ceiling tiles or even faux tin ceiling tiles make an eye catching backdrop for your countertops. The reflective surface is sure to catch your attention and it doesn’t require any special skills or tools to install. You’re looking at an afternoon project with little clean up.
2. Wood Plank
We know that wood plank is in (and hello shiplap!) but have you thought of using it as a splashback? Give some old fence boards or pallet wood new life by making it a splashback! This type of splashback would be great for so many styles of decor! Modern, rustic, farmhouse, and even Scandinavian all are loving wood tones right now. If you’re not up for real wood, there’s a couple of ways to fake it, from stick-on decorative wood, wood look wallpaper, and even vinyl flooring.

4. Paint that tile
Maybe replacing it is too much to manage, or the tile is actually in great condition, the colour just isn’t your thing. Did you know you can actually paint tile? Make sure you use a high quality primer, durable paint, and you can even add a top coat to add durability. Go all white for a clean look or paint a fun pattern to mimic your favourite Moroccan tile.
