Add a Splash of Color to Your Kitchen with a Metal Backsplash
Check out these before and after pictures – what a fabulous example of how adding a splash of color to your kitchen with a metal backsplash can completely transform the room from drab to fab in just a few hours – and look, no grout lines to keep clean!
Here are the homeowner’s pictures of before and after installing 0614 Optical Illusions Metal Backsplash . Jess E. from San Diego explains on Houzz that she painted plain silver tin tiles with a paint and primer in Behr’s Island Aqua to give this all grey and white kitchen a pop of color and followed that with a coat of poly to protect the surface and give it a nice sheen. The professional installation took less than three hours and the subsequent painting took an additional day with dry times between coats.
One last thing – if you look very closely at the after picture, you will notice that Jesse has actually taken advantage of the magnetic properties of the metal and has hung her oven mitt on the backsplash using a simple magnet hook!
Although this homeowner used a professional contractor, she could have just as easily done the work herself. Check out this video of how to install metal backsplash rolls – the video is actually a combination of a testimonial and HOW2 but you will quickly get the idea!
