More than any other room, kitchen updates and remodeling projects are most often the most expensive and time consuming. But in just a few days you can transform your kitchen with a brand new, glass-tile backsplash. Hide from the heat wave, enjoy the air-conditioning and end the weekend with a beautiful backsplash at the same time. You’ll be amazed at how easy this project is, too.

For this particular project, designer Erinn Valencich chose opaque glass tiles, but you can choose any kind of glass tile you want. After prepping the walls and doing a dry layout to double-check tile positioning, you’re ready for the easy-breezy installation process. My favorite part of this project is the freedom you have to choose your tilework and design. Create a horizontal stacked bond design like Erinn, or try a horizontal running bond pattern.

You can find the complete materials list and step-by-step instructions to this backsplash project at HGTV.com. Plus, get additional tips with this installing a glass tile backsplash video.

Come back afterwards, and let us know how your high-end, DIY backsplash turned out.
