Yesterday we published one of my favorite reader projects of the past year — a smart and inexpensive backsplash update. If you can’t even paint your backsplash, however, there is still a way to get a freshly tiled look in your rental kitchen.

For a truly classic look, try this New York-style black and white tile — printed on a removable wallpaper from Kate Zaremba (her shop is full of pretty wallpapers!).

Here’s another with a refined and elegant look. This would make a beautiful backsplash.

And my favorite is this geometric and energetic pattern from The Lovely Wall —what a great color!

Here is one other option for your backsplash, if you already have tile — and it’s plainer than you would like. You can dress up white or black or any other color tile with these decals to create something a little more cheery.
