Perhaps you just moved into a new home, and the one thing you didn’t love about the house was the outdated kitchen.  Your husband assured you that he would be able to fix it up in a snap for you, and give you the kitchen of your dreams.  However, once you got to researching and pricing materials, you realized just how big this project was going to be, and how much money it was going to take.  Do you forego the kitchen of your dreams?  Or do you find a way around it?

wood kitchen backsplash


Well, at Faux Direct we have a solution for you.  You can save lots of time and money by foregoing traditional materials like stone and tile for a kitchen backsplash and opting for faux wall paneling instead.  It will open up lots of money in your budget, and you can put it toward appliances and hardware instead.

Using faux wall paneling for a kitchen backsplash is a wise idea for a number of reasons.  First off, you can still have the same amazing look you originally wanted, or even achieve a look you didn’t think was possible! For instance, most people would never choose wood as a backsplash because wood and water don’t go well together.  And in a kitchen, spills and splashes are bound to happen.  With faux wood paneling, however, that look can easily be achieved.  Each of our panels at Faux Direct are created from a high quality polyurethane foam.  Polyurethane, by nature, is a closed cell material.  Because of this, water cannot penetrate its surface.  No matter what you spill or splash on your backsplash, you can easily wipe it off with a damp rag and you will not have to use harsh chemicals.

Secondly, you will not have to worry about the longevity of your faux wall paneled backsplash.  The panels will not chip, crack, or dent.  They are also resistant to mold, mildew, rot, and termites!  Their durability is out of this world, and you will be so glad you went faux when it is all said and done.  Head to our site at and browse from a wide variety of faux wall paneling and see which one fits the vision you have for your dream kitchen backsplash.  Upon ordering, you will receive your faux wall paneling within 2-3 weeks and the fun can begin!
