Anyone have ideas on using Engineered Hardwood for kitchen backsplash?
2dogal on Jan 17, 2018Professionals do not use any type of wood for backsplashes as wood is not compatible with water splashing on it. Hence the word backsplash. That's why you find tile, and other water compatible products used behind the sink.Helpful Reply
GrandmasHouseDIY on Jan 17, 2018Hey Cheryl, as long as wood is treated with a good sealant it can absolutely be used in areas where there will be moisture. You can use wood glue and small brad nails to tack it up and then I would do at least four coats of poly acrylic. I found an image of another DIYer who did a whole wall in it in her kitchen.Helpful Reply

William on Jan 17, 2018You sure can. Engineered Hardwood is already finished so no sealing is needed. Don't use wood glue. It won't hold. Use a construction adhesive. Best for the back splash would be Locktite Power Grab but any brand will work. Put about three beads on the back of the wood and press it firmly on the wall. As you build up the height use strips of blue painters tape randomly across the seams to hold it in place. No nails needed.Helpful Reply
