How do I redo a backsplash on textured walls?
I want to repaint the kitchen and maybe install a frugal backsplash. My walls are that textured drywall and I'm not sure a peel & stick tile will work.
Painting it would be an easy option.
Hi Sheryl, painting and stenceling could work and they make tile decals that could also give you a change.
It's beautiful as is in my opinion. It may "grow on you" if you wait six months.
You can buy stick on tile pieces that are pictures or designs. I have one in my master bath and everyone thinks it is real tile. I have had for years and it is beautiful. It is an Italian fruit basket.
Sheryl, you have a lot of choices at this website, if you want to stay with tile.
Painting it would be a good option, or using the fake tile makeover....but I really like it the way it is, but of course, that's a personal opinion on my part.
Aesthetically, I think it's already nice. The only issue I have is that with natural stone, oil and condensation leave their mark, even with the fan running. I would seal the naturally porous and pitted stone, for sure.
Tile stickers, before sealing, would be great. Stenciling the stone would be beautiful, too. Or, if you have the time and money, tear it all out and use a tile set from one of those websites.
My opinion is to stencil - leaves, branches, etc. with darker shades of tan, brown, red, orange -- and a scrubable, durable seal, of course!
Photo/video what you decided to do - and show us! Good luck, and enjoy the process.
I would clean and seal the stone with Stone Color enhancer. I would change the grout color with Grout Refresh.
I have the same tile and want to change it! We are planning on limewashing it to downtone the travertine. A company to check out would be Romabio - they have awesome colors
