Many rental units don't come with a backsplash in the kitchen, which is not always convenient or interesting. Chances are if you're renting, you most likely won't go to the trouble of installing glass tiles or ceramic tiles in your kitchen. For this rental unit I used Smart Tiles. They look just like glass tiles but they are made out of some sort of gel. They also come in different sizes and colors. The ones I chose were relatively easy and quick to install and cost less than $100. Removing them should be a breeze. According to the instructions, all you need is a hair dryer.
