Jonathan decided that he wanted to give his kitchen a “splash” of personality with a new custom backsplash, and he learned that sometimes a little DIY project can go a long way towards updating the look of a kitchen!
The backsplash before renovation
Inspiration can truly come from anywhere! Jonathan says that he found his inspiration from a similar kitchen backsplash he saw while watching the TV show The Big Bang Theory.
Testing the mosaic in the space
Jonathan knew that he wanted a backsplash that would match his existing countertop and paint theme. He chose to go with a monochromatic theme that complements the white cabinets and appliances.
The finished backsplash!
The new backsplash! Jon chose Storka Urban Hues 3” x 6” subway tile in color Fog and Storka Landscape 9/16” x random linear mosaic tile in color Ash. The backsplash really transforms the kitchen into a custom space.

He brought the subway tile all along the wall in the kitchen. If you are interested in a similar subway tile option, take a look at our Subway Tile Theme Page. Although the tile looks black in this photo, it is actually more of a grey color.

Jonathan says that he loves the way that the colors accent each other. We agree! We love the way the backsplash perfectly matches the existing appliances and color scheme.
A backsplash is a simple way to customize and upgrade a space in a big way!
Jonathan says that he plans on finishing off the space with a new paint color soon. All in all, Jonathan spent about 10 hours of work and $450 dollars on materials for the project. This project shows that not every kitchen makeover needs to be a complete overhaul; sometimes a little time and effort can go a long way!
