A full kitchen renovation is costly, time-consuming, and just generally a huge hassle—and for renters, it’s definitely not worth it. Luckily, in the age of Pinterest, there’s no shortage of ideas to mine for easy and affordable DIY projects that can spruce up your kitchen for almost no time or effort. One of the easiest ways you can make a change? Upgrading the look of your backsplash. Here are some of our favorite easy Pinterest DIY kitchen backsplash ideas for brightening your space.
1) Use a Stick-On Vinyl Backsplash
A popular (and affordable) way to change the look of a backsplash that you’ll find on Pinterest is to apply adhesive vinyl in decorative patterns. Blogger Brynne Delerson of the Gathered Home used her existing white square-tiled backsplash as a base and applied durable black vinyl triangles (normally used to make signs and vehicle lettering) in a pinwheel pattern. Her formerly boring white tile now looks like a mosaic of black and white tile, with no major construction involved! Vinyl is also a great option if you’re indecisive or don’t want to commit to one backsplash for an extended period of time—it peels off easily without residue. Best of all, this whole project took less than a day!
