A Backsplash Solution for Rental Kitchens: Fabric Under Plexiglass

Kitchen Inspiration

Do you remember IKEA's colorful kitchen backsplashes from a few seasons ago? What looked at the time to be elaborate tile or mosaic patterns was actually just IKEA fabric hung behind plexiglass! Since then this idea has popped up around the internet as one DIY backsplash solution for rental kitchens.

We know backsplashes can get messy if you do a lot of cooking, hence the reason for the plexiglass. The plexiglass protects the fabric and makes the backsplash easy to wipe clean. You can usually find plexiglass at hardware or art supply stores, and have it cut to size for you.

Have you ever done this? If so, share your experiences!
