Feature Friday: The Lovely Residence Kitchen Backsplash

You are going to drop your jaw on this one! I’ve got a fun kitchen feature for you today and while the whole kitchen is beautiful, the backsplash is gonna knock your socks off.  It’s a project, along with a kitchen feature.Meet Nikki (new blogger this year) and her hubby, from The Lovely Residence, who live in Minnesota in a beautiful 1926 Colonial that they are making their own. They are also expecting a baby this summer!  Today, we’ll check out their kitchen renovation. I thought this was one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time.See that pretty glass tile kitchen backsplash??  Well, guess what!  It’s not tile at all, but a decal.  Yep, you heard that right.  You can click over to Nikki’s blog to see all the details on this project, but here is a quick run down.  They took down some molding and started cutting the tile decal to install. Measured and cut.They cut it with scissors!  Now, that is my kind of project.  Just like my famous beadboard wallpaper that can be cut with scissors.Trimming with a utility knife. Fast and quick kitchen backsplash and it looks surprisingly like the real thing. High style, low dollars! Yep, that is exactly my idea of a cool renovation, on a budget. Doesn’t that look fantastic?

Here’s a rundown from Nikki on the whole project too:

The Stats:
– $160.00 to complete our whole space
– Free shipping
– 3 hours of quality time together
– Easy to apply. We applied our backsplash in big sections, but I pieced a few areas together with smaller squares and it is flawless
– Spaghetti Sauce wipes right off
Dali Decals will customize tile color for you, unbelievable
– No plaster
– No grout
– No sticky glue
– No Professional Tiler bill
– Can’t think of any, no joke
Thank you, Nikki, for stopping by today and sharing this fantastic project! I had never heard of decals for your backsplash before, now I’m a believer.  Truly amazing redo!
Hope you’ll stop on over and say hello to Nikki and visit her really cute blog. She is a brand new blogger this year, so give her some comment love!

  1. That is actually a neat concept! And much cheaper, and so much easier. From the photos, it looks like real tile. What a great find! I am an interior designer, I love new ideas!

  2. That looks so real. I will have to tell my daughter about this since she wants tile and can’t afford it right now.

  3. Amazing! Love the “tiles.” This is something I’d like to try in my home.

    I have a few questions. Do the tiles have a protective coating on it to protect from water? Can the tiles be wiped down? Would you add a polyurethane coating, particularly around the sink, to prevent moisture damage?

  4. Looks great! Could easy removal be another pro? Changing the decal in a few years would be a fantastic way to update the kitchen again without the monster job of removing real tile.

  5. That is so neat! We’re renters with a panelled kitchen (yes, you read that right!), and I think I’m going to figure out if this is removable. I might try it.

  6. My word. Looks great!

  7. Rhoda! I love this! thanks for sharing on your blog. I hope Georgia is treating you like the southern belle you are! Have a great weekend!! I will stop by to say hi to Nikki!

  8. Great project! East to update should they ever desire!

  9. Wow, I can’t believe that’s a decal!

    Wonder how easy it would be to remove it… if so, I would love to use that in my apartment’s kitchen. XD

  10. LOVE THIS!

  11. Marge V. says:

    Where can I buy the decals? I’ve seen kitchen decal websites, but they didn’t have the glass look-alike tiles. Help – I’m ready

  12. What size is the$18 decal?

  13. Cheryl Johnson says:

    Hi, just want to know where you find this glass tile wallpaper/decal. It looks so real and do they have different colors and styles of tile?

    I’m having a hard time finding some that are realistic. I live in Michigan.

    thank you ….cheryl

    • HI, Cheryl, I’d suggest going over to the blog that I featured and asking them specific questions about the product. The Lovely Residence is linked above, so hop over and ask them your questions.

  14. I’m curious if you’re still happy with the decals after all this time?

    • HI, Franchesca, I’m afraid this is a feature and the homeowners will not see your message. Please go over to their blog and ask the question there. Thanks!

  15. For latest news you have to go to see world wide web
    and on web I found this website as a best website for hottest updates.
