For some—especially those of us who rent rather than own—the time, effort, and money involved in upgrading to a new kitchen backsplash is just not worth the investment. But what if you could do it affordably, stylishly, and in under two hours? 1005 Design offers DIY backsplash kits that allow you to quickly and easily upgrade to an attractive metal backsplash, and right now they are offering Apartment Therapy readers $20.00 off the purchase of a new backsplash!
Because of the wide surface area it covers, installing a new backsplash is a re-do that has the potential to completely change the look of your kitchen. The 1005 Design metal backsplash is a new product that's designed to look great, install in 2 hours, and be easy to clean. We love that the kits come in a wide variety of designs (both modern and more traditional) and you can select different finishes for a look that is just right for your space. Another great feature is that the panels can be installed using picture hanging strips, which is perfect for anyone who would need a removable backsplash.
Made by a company that has been decorating metal for major appliance manufacturers for over 30 years, these metal backsplashes are made from 99% recycled aluminum and are 100% recyclable themselves. They have been safety tested and received a Class A fire safety rating and also meet appliance standards for heat, stain, and abrasion resistance. So in a nutshell, they're both stylish and strong.
The kits come with all the panels and trim you will need to have a new backsplash in three easy steps:
1) MEASURE your installation area. 2) CUT panels to size and make holes for outlets. 3) APPLY adhesive to panels and position on wall with (or without) trim.
