Stylish & Economical Kitchen

Create your own gradient backsplash.

When designer Jennifer Reid and her family renovated their house, they chose high and low additions to make sure they stayed within budget. They wanted a gradient or shaded tile effect for the backsplash, but it was expensive, so they purchased tile and created the effect for themselves by exchanging the dominant grey tiles for white ones. Ready-made cabinets from The Home Depot and Ikea hardware also cut costs.
