Covering up a tile backsplash?
The kitchen in the house we're buying has small 1/2" square tiles as the backsplash. Needless to say we hate it and would rather have something smooth and easy to clean BUT there's no room in the budget (ever) for doing anything in the kitchen except replacing the existing range/switching the OTR micro for a real range hood, and replacing the flooring. The cabinets and Corian counter are fine and will remain... we just REALLY hate the backsplash.
Btw, even though the pic makes it look as if the tile matches the countertop... it doesn't, in real life. The tiles are definitely yellow and the countertop is cream. The tiles are also the ONLY yellow thing in the room. Another reason for covering them up, LOL
Any suggestions for covering up the ugly tile with something smooth, thin and easily cleanable? We did look at those faux-metal backsplash panels that are supposed to look like antique pressed tin etc, but didn't like them at all.
Thin sheets of stainless steel maybe? applied with construction glue? Ripping out the backsplash wall/tile isn't an option, we would like a quick coverup if possible.
