It's important to consider how easy a tile is to clean when you're planning to use it in your kitchen. Unglazed tiles have a beautiful texture, but they are more likely to stain than glazed tiles. Stone tiles are also quite porous. Don't worry, though! Tiles can be sealed to make them suitable for use as kitchen backsplash tiles.
Other than color you need to also consider textures. Install sheets of tile that mix stone, glass, and/or metal. The effect is gorgeous. It can go from a natural look to very upscale. Changing the texture will add depth to your splash and make it blend very well with your countertops and cabinets.
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!
