The most popular natural stone tiles are marble and granite. Of the natural stones marble captures more detail than granite and since it is a softer stone it is good for applications like kitchen backsplashes.
Cover your entire backsplash in one solid color. This is good when you have a very busy granite countertop. You simply choose one color that you like, this is usually a neutral tone, and then select the type of tile you want. You can jazz up this solid field of tile by popping in another color or colors sporadically. This breaks up the solid field a little. It only takes a couple of odd colored tiles here and there to really change the overall look.
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.
