30. Put Up a Backsplash—Fast

Give your kitchen a more finished—and more colorful—look in an afternoon with peel-and-stick mosaic tiles. These sheets of mini tiles are made of a three-dimensional gel that mimics the look of ceramic or glass. To install, wash the area to be tiled with a trisodium phosphate (TSP) substitute to get rid of all traces of grease. Use a level to line up the first tile sheet at the countertop. Peel off the backing without touching the adhesive, and start placing the tiles, overlapping squares at the grout line, working left to right and bottom to top. Cut edges with a utility knife. Smart Tiles, starting at about $8 for a 10-by-10-inch sheet; homedepot.com
