If you have a kitchen backsplash project in the works, walk past the tile section in the hardware store and consider other common building supplies instead. Basic sheet materials have a lot to offer. Since they come in big pieces, installation is pretty easy, and the end results won't have ugly seams or grout lines. The best news? A good majority cost less than a couple hundred dollars to complete.

STAMPED TIN: Tin ceilings add character and the same goes for backsplashes made from the same material. This one from the DIY Network is only $100.

GLASS: A single sheet of glass, either painted on the back, or covering a painted wall, is colorful and is easy to clean. This one from Better Homes & Gardens goes all the way to the ceiling, but you could also stop under the range hood.

MIRROR: Used as backsplashes, mirrors make small spaces look larger, reflect light, and look super stylish in the kitchen. A matching switchplate cover is used in this home from HGTV.
