If you love the look of tiles but prefer to use paint on your backsplash, you can create faux tiles with paint. This can be a long, tedious process, but the results are worth it. Using the tape to create different sized "tiles," you can mimic a number of different materials, from glass to stone. If you`d like to incorporate a bunch of colors into your backsplash, this technique is the way to go.
Selecting the right paint finish is essential when painting a high-traffic space. Paints come in a number of finishes, from flat to high-gloss. The general rule of thumb is the more matte the finish, the harder it is to clean. If a finish is glossy, it tends to be more "scrubbable."
When it comes to paint, there are two types to choose from: oil paint and latex paint. Oil paint is very resistant to water, which is why it works well in kitchens. It also tends to be very shiny, so it's mainly used on cabinets, woodwork and doors. Latex paint is the more popular option for kitchen walls and it comes in a few different finishes.
