How to install an easy backsplash without a wet saw (tile cutter). This brushed nickel was the perfect match for cherry cabinets and granite counters.

I have been itching to put up a backsplash in my kitchen, but the idea of renting and using a wet saw was intimidating. It just seemed like a lot of extra money to rent or buy the equipment for one time use… particularly when there is the potential for a learning curve when initially using new equipment. So I gave up on the idea.
When I attended the Haven Conference last year, I was introduced to easy to cut backsplash such as the Fasade panels that I found from Fasade Ideas. They can be cut with tin snips or a good utility knife which is ideal. They’re also lightweight and less work than installing lots of small tiles.
I love how these came out. I wasn’t sure what would match well with our cherry cabinets and weird multi color granite countertops. And cherry floors. The brushed nickel matched well with the stainless steel appliances and wasn’t too “busy” against the countertops.

Like sewing, measure twice, cut once… you can’t put it back together once it’s cut.
We had a couple of weird areas, like around our window (above the sink). We opted to do our panels like this for that area:
Once you’re finished, remove the plastic covering the panels (if you haven’t already) and replace your outlet covers. The outlet covers can be made to match the panels if you use the Fasade Outlet Cover Laminate in Brushed Nickel, but we didn’t do this.
