A kitchen backsplash doesn't get the same kind of wear-and-tear that a mudroom floor, for example, gets every day. Backsplash tiles don't need to be as durable as many others. You won't have to limit your choices to the toughest and most durable tiles on the market. Feel free to experiment with materials and colors that you've never considered before. Don't be afraid to try art tiles and handmade tiles, if you see some that you like. A really wide range of tiles can be used for backsplashes!
If you are having challenges visualizing, WAIT to pick out the colors of your backsplash. I have so many customers that just can't visualize how everything will look when it's all finished. And, it's no wonder because when you are redoing your whole kitchen, virtually every element is changing. How often do you redo your kitchen? I'm guessing not often. Of course for someone like me who does this all the time, it comes more naturally, but for a regular customer, most of them need some assistance. From a sequencing standpoint, you'll want to get floors, cabinets and countertops done all sequentially. And, while your kitchen is out of commission at this point, once those countertops are installed and sinks/appliances reconnected to water and/or gas lines, your kitchen is operational again. If you need to, you can delay a bit before picking finalizing the backsplash, especially if this makes you feel more comfortable in your decision. I have many customers that opt for this solution. It just gives them piece of mind and more confidence in their choices.
This material can work very well for use in country kitchen style backsplashes. The tiles can be installed as the entire surface from counter to the bottom of the cabinets. Brushed aluminum tiles are good for modern or 1950's retro design kitchens. Metal tiles should match the color of the faucets and lighting.
