    Removable backsplash 16th Mar 17 at 1:30 PM
    I have just moved into a rental property, and only just noticed that there is no backsplash behind the sink in the kitchen.
    I've done a few searches, but can't find anything that might suit that could be removed without causing damage.
    I cant imagine Ill get through the tenancy without some splashing...
    Any ideas?
    If I cant find an option I'll see if the landlord would be open to having some tiling done.

    Most splashbacks can be screwed into place. Is it just painted walls at the moment? If so just remove the screws, fill the holes and paint over them before you move out.

    Ikea also do some splashbacks that slot into rails, which might be easier to remove when you leave, or perhaps you could look at something like double sided tape if you really didn't want screw holes.

    Thank you. That's worth a look.
    Yep. Painted walls.Only realised when I accidentally squirted fairy liquid at the wall. Oops.

    Mightn't be very fancy but I've used a patterned tray as a temporary fix. Colour and design matched to your kitchen and easily cleaned up
    The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.
    Thanks to everyone who contributes to this wonderful forum. I'm very grateful for the guidance and friendliness that I always receive from you.

    A piece of coloured Perspex, fastened with Command removable strips, stick pads or even just propped at a slight angle and held in place on the basin with a bit of sealant (that you could remove easily when leaving)?
