If you are short on money for a kitchen renovation, think about updating your kitchen look by replacing your backsplash. This may be an easy way to transform the look and feel of your kitchen without completely renovating the space. Tile is a popular and beautiful option for kitchen backsplashes, but there are other creative materials you may want to consider as well.

Paint your backsplash with chalkboard paint. This will become a handy feature for your kitchen because you can jot down recipes, grocery lists, to-do tasks and even love notes on the backsplash. Be forewarned, however, that you will need to clean your chalkboard backsplash frequently because of the white smudges that will form. The black paint also will conceal any splashes or grease spots from pots on the stove.
Cover your kitchen backsplash with magnetic metal. Not only does this give a kitchen a clean, slick, utilitarian look, but it will allow you to tack onto the backsplash recipes, photographs of food and other important papers that you need on hand while you are cooking. All you need is a few magnets.
Install cork board matting on the backsplash behind your stove for a natural yet useful backdrop. You need just a few push pins to tack recipes, coupons -- even a set of plastic measuring spoons -- on the board for easy access.
For a beautiful, open feel to a kitchen, consider installing a mirror on the backsplash behind your stove. Mirrors open up small, cramped spaces by giving the illusion of a larger space. Wipe down this backsplash frequently. Cooking in front of a mirror causes a lot of grime to accumulate.
