When choosing a backsplash it’s best to think about what you want in the space. Are you a big cook? You’ll want something that doesn’t stain or require hours of scrubbing to clean up. Skip the "focal point" as well as stick to something simple with clean lines. Nervous about color? Pick a bold paint color to use on walls instead.
"Glass kitchen backsplashes" have a chilly, suave look. Glass' reflective surface returns light and brightens the kitchen. Colors in "glass tile" tend to be especially powerful, and they never fade. After installation, you never had to seal the tile: Glass is naturally 100% non‐porous. Just wipe down with Windex and you're good to go.
"Travertine‐Backsplash", if you're trying for an Old World look in your kitchen, look no further than travertine tile. This is natural stone and it's lighter plus easier to install than manufactured veneer. It comes in rectified tiles from 4" x 4" up to 18" x 18", though twelve-inch squares are the largest tiles you'll want to use for backsplashes. Even though travertine is a limestone‐‐meaning that its surface is heavily pitted--these pits are typically filled in and honed to smoothness.
Metal Tile Backsplash: Metal backsplash tile once meant only one thing, big tin ceiling tiles re‐purposed for the wall. You'll still discover this, though it's not as popular as it was in the past. More recently, there has been an explosion of smaller "metal tiles" of all sorts of textures and finishes. So, where you once had white ceramic "subway tiles", now you can have brushed chrome "subway tiles".
