Tiling a kitchen splashback might seem like a daunting job to undertake if you're not an experienced DIYer, but it can be relatively easy, depending on the tiles you've chosen and the space to be tile. 

A kitchen splashback tends to be a simple, rectangular area, and when using something like a metro tile, you'll only have to make relatively simple cuts at the edges, or for around plug sockets. What's more, a kitchen splashback only typically consists of around three to five rows of tiles, making installing a splashback yourself a good place to start when learning how to tile a wall.
