Kitchen and bathroom backsplashes are two of the most common applications. The benefit is that a backsplash isn’t such a huge commitment in terms of area. Penny tiles can create a subdued, textural installation, like this Waterworks penny tile backsplash in a 1950s-style home.
The cabinets are painted with a conversion solution that is sprayed on and resembles laminate when dry. Like the vinyl wallpaper, this paint can stand up to the usual kitchen abuse. Cabinet paint: Caldwell Green, Benjamin Moore
